Helsinki, 14 October 2020 - The Finnish technology company Wolt, which is known for its food delivery platform, attracts an investment from Lukasz Gadowski, serial entrepreneur and co-founder of Delivery Hero.

Miki Kuusi, CEO and co-founder of Wolt, says: “This investment isn’t about the money, rather it’s about joining forces with Lukasz. As one of the co-founders of Delivery Hero, Lukasz knows the ins and outs of our industry and he has first-hand knowledge in how we can become an international brand. We are very like minded in how the customer should always be the priority, and how growth needs to be based on efficiency and the long-term."

Lukasz Gadowski says: “I was looking for ways to make the food delivery scene in Germany better. Our paths crossed with Miki and I was impressed by Wolt as a company. Their DNA is a mix of technology and efficiency paired with customer obsession and operational drive. I am investing into Wolt because they offer a high-quality delivery service and they have the potential to become a global brand. I wish to add to their success and help the team reach their long-term goals.” Lukasz Gadowski is investing 7.5 million euros in Wolt as a private angel investor.
