Can Hybrid Food-delivery Models Drive Growth and Reinvent Logistics?
March 10, 2015
Hosted by Nancy Lin
The growing need for on-demand services has spurred new business models and intense competition, especially in the food and grocery delivery category. It's estimated that the market for take-out food is approximately $70 billion. Last month, GrubHub reported 50% increase in its fourth-quarter revenues. In addition to Google, Amazon, Yelp and Uber, many startups are also developing hybrid business models to compete with the giants. This week, Nilam Ganenthiran, Head of Business Development and Strategy at Instacart, and Anson Tsui, CTO and Co-founder of SpoonRocket, join me to discuss their business models, the market potential, and the challenges posed by the growing competition.
