The main investor of the Czech company Rohlik Group became the Belgian family investment company Sofina. However, founder Rohlík Tomáš upr remains the largest shareholder. The company received approximately 5.4 billion crowns (220 million euros) from investors. Uber itself also participated in the financing this time, as did the current investor Index Ventures.
The company said it will continue to deliver and accelerate technological innovations, including warehouse automation and electric mobility, thanks to the additional funding. Last year, it said it wanted an all-electric fleet of cars to deliver purchases by the end of 2025. “Plus, this (financial) increase gives us a chance to win in the online food delivery business in the next few years. I’m looking forward to everything we have ahead of us. Uber said.
The Rohlik Group, which was founded in 2014, has received more than 12 billion crowns (500 million euros) from investors. Last year, it became the first Czech company called Unicorn, a company worth more than 1 billion US dollars.
In addition to the Czech Republic, the company operates in Hungary, Austria and Frankfurt, Germany. Hamburg will add this year, expanding its services to Italy, Romania and Spain. It has about one million active customers. For the last financial year, running from last May to April of this year, it generated a turnover of nearly 12 billion kroner (490 million euros).
