Startup Challenges: HelloFresh
“You want to ship food via mail? That’s ridiculous!”
That is what Dominik Richter and Thomas Griesel heard over and over again. They wanted to change how people eat, make cooking easier and help people to eat fresh, high-quality meals. They wanted to take away the stress of shopping, planning meals and leave in only the fun part of food: the cooking. Dominik will deliver a keynote on 26 May 2016. Want to know more now?
