Gopuff, a leading consumer technology platform and instant needs category creator, today announced it was named to the 2020 CNBC Disruptor 50, an annual list of the most ambitious and innovative private companies transforming the economy, disrupting technology and changing industry.
With 200 facilities delivering to customers in nearly 500 cities across the country, Gopuff has become the modern day consumer’s go-to solution for immediate everyday needs; delivering everyday essentials, from cleaning supplies, home needs and OTC medications to drinks and food delivery in just minutes. The company’s vertically integrated operating model, hyper-local delivery, speed and affordability, connects people with products they want and need, in a way no other company currently is.
“We’re proud to be recognized for our innovation and entrepreneurship, and to be included among the next generation of companies disrupting the status quo,” said Gopuff co-founders Rafael Ilishayev and Yakir Gola.
“2019 was an exciting year of growth for Gopuff, as we expanded into new markets across the country, introduced new product categories, and invested in new talent. We’ve built and sustainably grown a company that not only disrupted an industry, but created an entirely new category – Instant Needs. This award is a testament to our incredible team’s hard work this past year and we look forward to continuing to execute against our growth plans as we scale our business for the future.”
The CNBC Disruptor 50 list was selected by CNBC and CNBC.com editorial staff using a proprietary blend of quantitative and qualitative information submitted by the nominated companies. Disruptor 50 data partners PitchBook and IBISWorld provided additional quantitative input. In addition to CNBC’s editorial staff, the CNBC Disruptor 50 Advisory Council, a group of 55 leading thinkers in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship, weighted the quantitative criteria and provided additional analysis of qualitative information.
