Building a Sequoia-funded quick commerce startup with ROQ
Without having a tech-team in place, within 3 months, VOLY was ready to enter the market with their quick commerce application.
Fast, faster, VOLY
The quick commerce market was in a gold-rush mood in 2021, and Australia was no exception. The young startup VOLY saw the opportunity to conquer the market by quickly developing a food delivery platform. The startup was still in its infancy and consisted of the core team around the founders.
Developing a functioning and scalable food delivery app in the shortest possible time was therefore a major challenge. While the staffing of product and engineering teams was still underway, development of the VOLY app had already begun. Working with ROQ, VOLY was nevertheless able to develop a comprehensive app that maps the entire purchasing process in a very short time:

The client: VOLY
The Australian startup VOLY is the pioneer in the Australian quick commerce market. Within 15 minutes, the "on-demand supermarket" delivers to the customer's home. Speed was also the decisive factor when entering the market: founded only in 2021, VOLY was the first quick commerce company in Australia.
In December 2021, VOLY secured $13 million in funding from Sequoia Capital, whose early investments in companies such as Google, YouTube, WhatsApp, and Paypal have made them legends in tech finance.
