Originally launched as a grocery delivery app in late 2015, Rappi has evolved into a platform for the delivery of “everything” for Latin American consumers. Recognized as one of Latin America’s fastest growing start-ups, Rappi is led by Colombian entrepreneurs Simon Borreo and Sebastian Mejia – serial entrepreneurs who previously partnered to build e-commerce enabler Grabability.
