Lanch, a Berlin, Germany-based food delivery software startup, raised €6.5 million in funding. The round was led by Felix Capital, HV Capital, and angels such as German footballer Mario Götze and André Schürrle. 

The company intends to use the funds to bring its software tools to the public and expand its operations and business reach. 

Virtual kitchen and food delivery 

Founded by Dominic Kluge, Jonas Meynert, Kevin Kock, and Nono Konopka in 2022, Launch is a Berlin startup that provides a virtual kitchen and food delivery service. It provides a software platform, which features tools to connect food brands with popular creators in order to make food delivery fun. 

Its influencer-paired food brands include “Happy Slice”, a pizza brand created along with German YouTubers Knossi and Trymacs. This brand has sold over 30,000 pizzas in its launch weekend. 

Now, Launch is gearing up a partnership with a German musician called Luciano dubbed “Loco Chicken.” 

“When first investing into Lanch, we loved the vision of building new substantial food brands for creators with massive reach. We were fully convinced of the capabilities of the experienced founding team to bring this vision to life. One year down the road, our expectations on growth, quality of food, brand recognition were heavily exceeded,” said David Kuczek, General Partner at HV Capital. 

“Over time, we have built increasing conviction on the superpowers that creators have in today’s digitised world, and are impressed with Lanch’s distinct and innovative positioning, built on community. Lanch is obviously about great food, but also delivering a powerful experience for consumers and creators alike. We’re thrilled to be part of their journey to reshape the way we experience food, in a modern way,” added Frederic Court, Founder and Investor Felix Capital.
