Crowdsourced delivery and courier service Go People has raised in excess of $2 million in two rounds of funding over the last three months, with its latest round raising a further $825,000.
Go People continues to see significant interest for its services, as the company looks to capitalise on the demand for on-demand couriers and become dominant in simpler deliveries. Go People (formerly People Post) has also undergone a facelift, with a new brand name and revamped technology platform to match.
Wayne Wang, founder and CEO of Go People, believes the recent raise and surge in demand marks a significant turning point for the company.
“Since I started the business in 2014, I believed the courier model could be much more efficient. We went to market to change the delivery industry and disrupt legacy delivery and courier rules,” he said.
“The fact we’ve had two successful funding rounds, 83 per cent month on month growth and seen significant demand on our platform, with more than 10,000 deliveries being made a month, it’s clear we’re heading in the right direction. This demand shows there is hunger for more flexible and convenient services among Australian consumers.”
