Thanks to Corona, Food & Delivery is a big topic again. And the field is slowly clearing in the USA too. After this Grubhub only recently for $ 7.3 billion Just Eat Takeaway (in this country: Lieferando) left (PDF), Uber Eats has now snatched postmates for 2.6 billion dollars (PDF source):

"Uber Technologies, Inc. and Postmates Inc. announced today that they have reached a definitive agreement under which Uber will acquire Postmates for approximately $ 2.65 billion in an all-stock transaction."

Previously, Instacart was able to collect another 225 million dollars and then probably an additional 100 million dollars:

"We're pleased to announce that Instacart has raised $ 225 million as part of a new financing round led by DST Global and General Catalyst, with existing investor D1 Capital Partners participating. This investment increases the company’s valuation to $ 13.7 billion. "

But even with that, Instacart still does not come close to the 400 million dollars that DoorDash recently enjoyed ("Investing in the Future of Local Commerce"):

"Today, we are announcing that we are raising approximately $ 400 million in a Series H financing led by new investors Durable Capital Partners LP and Fidelity Management & Research Co., and existing investors, funds and accounts advised by T. Rowe Price Associates, Inc . The investment values ​​DoorDash at almost $ 16 billion. "

We are currently considering how we can better map the Food & Delivery segment in the GLORE50, where it is now mainly represented indirectly via Alibaba, JD, Prosus and others.

Fortunately, something is happening again in this area in this country. See message in a bottle already at 100,000 boxes a day and The Gorillas App in the first check.
