Who We Are
Delivery Hero was founded in May 2011 by CEO Niklas Östberg (the guy with the pizza) with support of Team Europe, i.e. Markus Fuhrmann, Lukasz Gadowski and Kolja Hebenstreit. These founders have been building international internet companies for more than a decade. They were supported by an experienced team united by the passion to bring innovative concepts to the food delivery industry.
Delivery Hero and its headquarters are based in Berlin, the start-up capital of Europe. The business is backed by Team Europe, General Atlantic, ru-Net, Kite Ventures, Tengelmann Ventures, Rocket Internet, Point Nine Capital, Lead Edge Capital, Vostok New Ventures, and Insight Venture Partners.
