The Business of On-Demand Food

The on-demand food tech space is on fire. Startups that deliver cooked meals, recipe kits and groceries at the tap of a button are cropping up constantly and many are raising $25M+ funding rounds left and right. Join us on May 27th for an inside look at how a handful of these startups operate.

Startups will share insights about their business models, technologies and lessons learned. Each startup will have 5 minutes to present followed by 5 minutes of audience Q&A 

There will be networking, snacks from MuncheryGoodMealOx Verte and Sweetist and drinks from Drizly before the presentations start at 7:30 and after they end.


Mike Blank - General Manager, Munchery NYC - The Menlo Ventures, Anthos Capital and SherpaVentures backed startup that offers nourishing, affordable, chef-cooked meals delivered right to your door. Dishes are fully cooked, chilled for maximum freshness, and served in oven- and microwave-safe containers for easy heating in less than ten minutes. // @munchery

William Nichols - Operations Manager, Instacart NYC - The Kleiner Perkins, Khosla Ventures and Sequoia Capital backed service that allows you to order groceries online from multiple local stores at the same time and have them delivered to your door in as little as an hour. // @instacart
