In addition to EG Partners, Shinhan Capital, Seoul Investment Partners, and Solborn Investment, also participated in the investment due to Mesh Korea’s growth potential. Since its establishment in January 2013, Mesh Korea has provided distribution services called Bootake and one day premium service Mesh Prime. Bootake is a professional delivery app that delivers foods from well-known restaurants and daily necessities from local stores. Mesh Prime, on the other hand, is a service for restaurants that doesn’t offer delivery and connects delivery service and the markets.

Sang-young Seo of EG Partners noted, “Korea’s delivery market is showing infinite amount of potential as it already reached the value of 30 trillion won. Mesh Korea’s IT-based distribution hub network showed us their potential in the general distribution market which helped us to make this decision.”
