Manage episode 270422990 series 2645203
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).
