8. November 2011–
Berlin-based incubator Team Europe (www.teameurope.net, Venture Village investor) today announced the founding of Delivery Hero Holding. Following the announcement, the online food-ordering and delivery service officially launched in Sydney, Australia, having paired up with 400 restaurants. Online food-delivery expert Niklas Oestberg has been appointed the company’s CEO and will manage the German-grown business internationally.
Oestberg successfully managed a pizza-ordering-delivery service in Sweden, Finland, Poland and Austria. Team Europe partner Kolja Hebenstreit said it was a snap decision to join forces with Oestberg, saying "I knew immediately that Team Europe had to found an enterprise with him. 24 hours later, we had already reached an agreement". Delivery Hero Holding is hoping to become a leader of its kind – worldwide, with plans of expanding its Australian market into Melbourne.
