The Russian startup focuses on food deliveries with particularly short delivery times.
Convenient doorstep delivery of groceries has become the norm in Germany, especially during the pandemic. The market for online supermarkets is fiercely competitive and the sales potential is increasing, not least due to the Corona crisis. GetFaster from Russia also launched food deliveries in NRW at the end of 2020, focusing on particularly short delivery times of ten minutes or more. The founders of GetFaster were supported by NRW.Global Business in setting up in Düsseldorf and entering the German market. Just recently, the startup received 1.2 million euros in prefinancing capital from several international private investors.
When it comes to logistics, GetFaster relies on micro fulfillment centers from which the groceries are distributed. The company currently offers more than 1,500 different items – and plans to add 2,500 more within the next few months. In addition to the Düsseldorf location, GetFaster plans to open up to four more micro fulfillment centers in the near future. The ordering and delivery services in the Ruhr Metropolis were already expanded in mid-March with a new branch in Essen.
The startup is already successful with its business model in several countries – including Turkey, Russia, the UK and the USA.
