€18 billion market cap Delivery Hero co-founder about running a global logistics business during the pandemic

Famously joining the index of Germany's 30 largest companies by market capitalization & valuation — was REALLY just the first step for Niklas Östberg, the co-founder and CEO of Berlin headquartered Delivery Hero.

The entrepreneur who co-started the online food delivery platform that's more valuable now than Deutsche Bank, has much higher ambitions, as he discloses in this week's episode of our Bits & Pretzels podcast.

Here's what's in this show for you: The leader of the global player in the $100 billion market of food delivery shares 1) best practices about managing a global logistics business in a pandemic, 2) how he turned a local service into a global platform for lunch and more & 3) the secrets of keeping big tech rivals, namely Amazon & Google, who dominate most digital businesses in Europe, on arms-length (for now).

And here's your chance to personally meet Niklas at our Bits & Pretzels Networking Week (Sept 27th to Oct 2nd 2020) along with other world-class startup leaders. Register here to join: https://www.bitsandpretzels.com/application-page
