It’s been a busy time at Drinkly HQ over the past couple of months, and we’re on track to make 2020 our biggest year yet. With lots of exciting things happening, we want to share it all with you! So, sit back (maybe with a Drinkly in hand), and read on…
We reached our crowdfunding target
We’re thrilled to announce that we hit our crowdfunding target for our Seedrs campaign in just seven weeks! After the campaign launched in December, we received support from hundreds of new investors and funded over our target of £250,000.
These funds will support our plans to grow our retailer base, build out our tech and put in place a solid integrated marketing strategy, and continue to help us on our mission to become the UK’s number one on-demand market leader.
Tech Nation 2020
Last month, we took part in the UK’s only national start-up competition, the Tech Nation Rising Stars.
After pitching to the panel in London and fending off some pretty tough competition from 400 applicants, we are officially named one of the top 20 tech start-ups in the UK today. Nae bad!
New Drinkly Locations
Tell your friends, we’ve expanded!
We’ve recently partnered with 8 new retailers and launched in several exciting locations across the UK. If you live in Whitburn, East Falkirk, Livingston, Fauldhouse or Ayrshire, you can now enjoy delicious chilled drinks, snacks and essentials delivered to your door in just one hour.
We’re growing rapidly and our aim is to bring our unique delivery service to 150 locations by the end of 2020, so keep your eye on the platform.
Introducing our new Head of Marketing
We’re excited to welcome Nat as the latest addition to the Drinkly team.
Having previously worked in the public sector, and led the digital strategy of the global marketing campaign ‘Scotland is Now’, Nat joined us at Drinkly as Head of Marketing in February. She’s excited to bring her industry and agency experience to Drinkly and support us in our ambitious growth plans.
Her drink of choice you ask? At the moment, she’s really loving Erdinger Weißbräu’s non-alcoholic beer!
