Crowdsourced courier startup Go People raises $3m funding
Australian crowdsourced courier service Go People has raised a further $3m in its latest funding round.
In a statement sent to Post&Parcel today (31 January), Go People said that it has grown its monthly deliveries by 600% over the past 12 months. The company currently operates across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, and plans to expand to other cities in Australia “soon”.
Wayne Wang, founder and CEO of Go People, commented: “The growth we’re generating shows there’s hunger for more flexible, convenient delivery services among Aussie consumers. Investor interest during the capital raise exceeded expectations, and is particularly encouraging as we look to diversify our offering for retailers with new delivery options in 2018,” said Wang.
“Funds raised from this round will help Go People to further consolidate the market nationally, investing in research and development to meet the needs of Australian retailers. One such result of our research is the GoSHIFT service, which helps businesses make express deliveries to consumers.”
