Zakaz.ua, an online service to order from popular grocery chains, secured €5 million in February from Chernovetskyi Investment Group (CIG). No public announcement was made, but the deal appeared on CrunchBase.
The company was founded in 2010 by Ukrainian entrepreneur Yegor Anchyshkin – whose first startup, Viewdle, was acquired by Google in 2012. In 2014, Zakaz.ua attracted an initial $2.5 million from CIG.
CIG is backed by businessman and former Kiyv (Kiev) mayor Leonid Chernovetskyi.
The number of orders received by the service Zakaz.ua saw the number of orders it processed increase by 80% in the first days of lockdown in Ukraine.
