Mexico City, April 4, 2016
Cornershop (www.cornershopapp.com), a Mexican-Chilean startup and leader in fast food delivery to Mexico, raised $ 6.7 million from Series A. Round is led by Jackson Square Ventures and ALLVP with participation from Creandum, Accel partners, Endeavor Catalyst and several existing investors.
“What we find attractive at Cornershop is the strength of the experienced team combined with a great market opportunity,” said Greg Gretsch, managing director at Jackson Square Ventures. “In addition, Cornershop is already showing great initial traction and solid customer loyalty indicators. We are excited to partner with the team in this exciting venture.”
“Cornershop has shown that there is a great opportunity in Mexico for this type of service and that the time to start is now. Although people have always needed help to make their lives easier, everything that was needed to build that specific type of aid was not in place until recently. The Mexican e-commerce boom and the adoption of mobile devices that we have seen in the last 2-3 years have changed what is possible, ”added Federico Antoni of ALLVP, a leading early-stage fund in Mexico, who will join the board of directors of Cornershop.
Cornershop has built a solid operation from which it can now scale more quickly. The Mexican food market alone generates more than a hundred billion dollars a year and the online part of it is almost insignificant. Metropolitan areas like Mexico City have the perfect characteristics to build and scale this service profitably.
Daniel Undurraga, co-founder and CTO discussed similar services worldwide and believes that this model requires adaptation to local needs; “Solving local problems and optimizing local opportunities will require a unique solution for our markets.”
“We are excited to add more big investors to an already solid team of investors and incredible colleagues. We have the right team, product and operating model to move faster. We must roll up our sleeves, bend our heads deeply and focus every day on incremental improvements to hundreds of small details that make this business a lot of fun. With hard work and relentless focus, we can build something much bigger than most people realize for this service in these markets, which are homes for millions of people who need all kinds of things to operate their families now … and live happy forever . ”Said Oskar Hjertonsson, co-founder and CEO.
