We have a fascinating show for you today. In Episode 22, I interview Devan Hughes, Founder and CEO of Buymie, the Dublin-based grocery delivery platform. Buymie is a mobile app, where you can order groceries and have them delivered to your door in as little as 1 hour! Devan is the chairman of the Sharing Economy Ireland. He worked at Salesforce.com, as part of their strategic enterprise team, with a focus on the FMCG and Manufacturing sectors. Devan holds a Degree in Finance from the National College of Ireland
If you want to learn why platforms are valuable, you have to listen to this podcast. Devan gives a tutorial on platform economics and explains why players like DoorDash and Postmates will have to pivot or die. Geek warning, Devan is my brother from another mother. We both worked in the energy sector. We both launched fingerprint businesses and we are both now building platforms in the grocery sector. BTW, we both share a love for Ironman! If you are geek for the Sharing Economy, you will love this episode.
