Quiqup receives new funding from investors

On demand delivery company Quiqup has raised new funding from Rocket Internet’s investment fund Global Capital and Delivery Hero.

Quiqup is a business that promises to collect and deliver anything as quickly as possible – usually within the hour but sometimes in as little as 12 minutes – in central London. Customers use an app from the Apple App Store to make the order, and then the firm uses personal shoppers / couriers known as Quiquees who will go to shops and restaurants, make the purchase and deliver the article or food within the hour.

The new capital suggests that the company’s business model is on sound footing and is set to grow beyond its narrow current reach.
