The cofounder and chief technology officer of food delivery service Deliveroo has built a new startup called Peanut.
Greg Orlowski, who cofounded Deliveroo in 2012 left last year as he wanted to spend more time with his wife and newborn daughter in Chicago.
Obviously retirement is not for Greg!!!!
It seems that he identified a gaping need for mummy’s to be to share their experiences! He cofounded a company called Peanut — a new friend-dating app for mums and mums-to-be — with Michelle Kennedy, the former deputy CEO of dating app Badoo.
Peanut’s early investors include Facebook exec Julien Codorniou and venture capitalists NEA, Felix Capital, and Partech.
The app, focussed on chat and discovery, is similar in design and appearance to other dating apps.
Users log in with their Facebook accounts before answering some questions relating to their due date and any other children they may have. The app uses these answers, in conjunction with location-based information, to recommend potential mummy-matches in their area.
