On-demand food delivery service raises $400 million in new funding
DoorDash Inc. – an on-demand food delivery service operating in all 50 US states, has raised another $400 million in a Series F funding round led by Temasek and Dragoneer Investment Group.
The cash injection brings DoorDash’s total capital raised to $1.4 billion, of which $978 million came from funding rounds in the last year.
The food delivery company is now worth $7.1 billion and is closing the gap with rival Grubhub, whose market worth is around $7.2 billion.
