Hey there and welcome to Monday’s episode the Startup Grind Podcast. Today we have a conversation with the CEO & Co-founder of Deliveroo, William Shu from our first regional conference, Startup Grind Europe in June of this year. Will is really on a mission to transform the way the world thinks about takeaway food. He founded Deliveroo in August 2013 after becoming fed up with London's poor quality and slow food delivery options. Prior to starting the company, he worked in banking at Morgan Stanley, ESO Capital and SAC Capita. Deliveroo is now in over 50 cities across the world and has attracted $200m worth of investment from some of the world's leading investors, including Index Ventures, Accel and DST Global.
