Why we invested
"We love working with Episode 1 - they are smart, humble and like to tackle problems with us. They have supported us immensely in numerous ways, bringing their real world insights to our growth and hiring challenges."
Riya Grover and Lyz Swanton
The proposition is startlingly simple - recreate a virtual staff canteen using technology - but the logistical details are extremely complex, and we love the way this balanced team has mastered them. The opportunity is huge - in London alone there are 80,000 companies struggling with the logistical nightmare of lunchtime delivery, poor eating and health habits, and the disruptions to productivity and culture of people leaving the building to eat. Riya and Lyz have a passion for high quality service and a compelling product roadmap to bring better food to all office workers.
