Everli, a Milan, Italy-based online grocery marketplace, secured an additional €22m as part of its Series C funding.
The round was led by new investor United Ventures’s UV T-Growth, which focuses on highly innovative growth-stage companies.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its existing international expansion plans.
Founded in 2014 and led by Federico Sargenti, CEO, Everli is an online grocery shopping platform that enables users to receive their products home via the Everli app or website. The company, which also has offices also in Paris, Verona and Warsaw, employs more than 300 people. It has created more than 100 partnerships with retailers and CPG companies, such as Lidl, Carrefour, Conad, Coop and Kaufland, providing flexible employment for over 3,000 shoppers. Everli serves 135 cities in Italy, France, Poland and Czech Republic, and has delivered groceries 4 million times.
Everli initially announced its Series C funding last year, and since then expanded into France and the Czech Republic; won additional retail partnerships with retailers such as Kaufland, Carrefour and Casino; hired new key leadership; and grew and developed its team and capability in areas such as tech, product, operations, marketing and finance.
