Manila: Pickaroo, a new app being launched today in the Philippines, wants to offer an “all-in-one” delivery platform.
“I think what’s very common is that, normally, you have a separate food app and you have a separate delivery app for groceries. We want to offer an all-in-one app” Crystal Gonzalez, CEO and co-founder of Pickaroo, tells Tech in Asia.
Pickaroo raised its first US$5 million in investment from Agile Digital Ventures, the technology and digital investment arm of Philippine real estate conglomerate Megaworld Corporation, which not only develops residential properties but also operates malls, office spaces, and hotels.
Kevin Tan, the president and founder of the VC firm, is also a co-founder at Pickaroo, which is Agile’s first startup investment.
