FundedByMe Success Story Wheelys Launches Unmanned Convenience Store in Shanghai.
News just in from TechCrunch: "Wheelys, a startup that got its start selling an all-in-one cafe on a bike, is pushing forward with another crazy local commerce idea. The company is opening up an unmanned retail store in Shanghai that will allow customers to buy chocolates, cigarettes or potato chips at any time, day or night. “We’ve been thinking about how to make shopping more innovative, effective and cheaper for people to start a cafe or retail in general,” Wheelys cofounder and CEO Maria De La Croix told TechCrunch's Ryan Lawler
Wheelys successfully closed an equity crowdfunding round worth more than EUR 800,000 on towards the end of 2016, making it one of the top FundedByMe success stories of the last year. Says Daniel Daboczy, CEO and co-founder of FundedByMe about the news announced by Wheelys today: "If anyone ever wondered what the main difference between FundedByMe and local competitors is, then this is it! We empower our campaign owners to dream big, build big and use the power of the crowd to help them get there."
