Getir is an instant grocery delivery startup. The difference from traditional delivery services is that Getir lets its customers make an order without choosing a delivery slot. As soon as the order was made, the service starts working on it. It is possible to receive the order in “minutes”.
The Series E funding round was led by Mubadala Investment Company. Along with it, Abu Dhabi Growth Fund (ADG), Alpha Wave Global, Sequoia Capital, and Tiger Global also took part in the round. With these investments, Getir became the first European delivery decacorn. This money is planned to be used for further conquering and dominating the active market.
