Rocket Internet and Delivery Hero invest in Qipqup

UK-based on-demand delivery service Qipqup announces a “multi million pound” Series A investment from Berlin-based take-out delivery service Delivery Hero and Rocket Internet, who partly owns Delivery Hero. Qipqup has a similar concept to e.g. Deliveroo: It brings customers what they want from places that don’t offer their own delivery service. However, the startup points out it is not limited to food delivery.
