Such funding round is Everli’s largest to date and was led by Verlinvest with investments from Luxor, DN Capital, C4 Ventures, and Conviviavilité Ventures, as new investors into Everli, together with existing investors FITEC, 360 Capital Partners, Innogest and DIP.
Since 2014, Everli has become the delivery partner of choice for some of Europe’s largest grocery brands, including Lidl, Kaufland, and Carrefour, offering access to over 300,000 products across 70 cities in Italy, Poland, and, more recently, Czech Republic and France. In 2020 Everli’s sales almost quadrupled to US$130m, as consumer shopping habits continue to rapidly shift towards online grocery shopping.Since its launch, Everli has continued to expand rapidly and its international presence already accounts today for over 20% of its orders.
Fresh capital will be used to accelerate further the expansion of Everli’s European footprint and significantly scale the team up in areas such as tech, product, operations, marketing and finance.
Everli is an online marketplace where customers can choose their favourite supermarket and order products in stores for same-day delivery via dedicated Everli Shoppers. The service has become essential to consumers, who have accelerated their propensity to turn to onlinesolutions for their grocery shopping needs throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Everli’s offering has proven invaluable also to supermarkets and retailers looking to adapt to consumers’ new shopping behaviour and complement their offering with an online solution of their own. As it scales, Everli also attracts an increasingly high share of CPG brands’ advertising & promotions spend, providing them with consumer behavior data they never could access in the offline world.
Everli is the first player to offer a same-day grocery delivery service in small/medium density areas, previously and typically underserved by online grocery players, an agile logistics model that also provides over 3,000 shoppers with flexible employment opportunities.
