In the blink of an eye, the Deliveroo rider has become one of the most familiar sights in London. Founded in 2013 by American ex-banker William Shu, the company has raised more than £139m and expanded rapidly worldwide - it now operates in a total of 68 cities across 12 countries. This is a company on a mission to change the way the world thinks about takeaway; through marketing, selling and delivering quality restaurant meals at the press of a button.

Deliveroo has merged the intersection between food and technology, starting from London has proved to be a significant advantage for its business model - from the density of its population, its many different 'villages' and neighbourhoods, and its profusion of high street chains and independent restaurants.
