ABOUT THE COMPANY
How it all started
HV’s story with Delivery Hero begins with Markus Fuhrman. On recommendation from HV, Markus started to look for experiences as a business builder. This led him to starting Lieferheld, which merged with Delivery Hero.
Delivery Hero is one of the biggest contradictions of HV. They were somehow an enabler of the start of Lieferheld. For fund reasons HV were not able to invest in Delivery Hero as the international partner. Instead, Delivery Hero took the opportunity of an early exit, scared to stay long term for fund reasons. Delivery Hero is now a global masterpiece of a buy and build strategy. When successfully executed, their model can enable young digital companies a fast track to global leadership.
“Back your winning teams for their long term vision. Leave your own tactics behind.
Stay a believer by conviction. Stay a believer in superior founders.”
