Belly and Brain going to the Awards

At Just-Eat we are very proud of our two mascots, Belly & Brain, and now we actually have a bit of external love for these carachters as well. And I am not talking about the nearly 100,000 people who have seen the UK version of the 2 first commercials, but the fact that we have […]

World Party 2010

Once a year, we get all full-time employees together for a big, social event. It becomes more and more complex (and expensive) as the company grows, but it is really worth it, and it is increasingly important as more and more colleagues are added to the ranks of Just-Eat cadres. This year, nearly 140 people […]

Mingling with the Index’s

Sometimes people ask me why we choose Index Ventures as the VC, when we took funding in 2009, and I usually give them the song and dance about Index’s good track record, nice people, right investor approach bla-bla, but in reality, it was because I desperately wanted to go to the annual Index CEO event!

Just-Eat in Financial Times

I presented at the UK & Ireland Tech Tour the other day, and Financial Times picked up on our company. Here is the article, thanks to all Just-Eat’ers for working hard and make us a notable company up there in the big league. Not too fund of the picture, but they told me it comes […]

Who cares about Facebook?

FB is big, very big. The first time I logged onto FB was in the late autumn of 2005. Back then the hype had started, and within a couple of years they gained massive momentum, but personally I don’t really use this modern Wonder of a social network. And I still only use it quite […]

Irish status: goood

Me and some of the other HQ fat cats went to Dublin last week to have our monthly business review of the Irish business. James Galvin (Galvin means “young, but with a grumpy edge” in Gaelic) has done a great job as Country Manager the last one and a half year since he was thrown into […]
