Crowd-financed start-up Foodist prepares exit!


Foodist, a start-up financed by the crowd on Companisto, is being sold to Ströer! In the years 2013, 2014 and 2015, Foodist generated approx. € 1.5 million from 2399 Companists on Companisto. The start-up Foodist is now being taken over by the listed media company Ströer.

Each month, Foodist sends its customers an exclusive selection of international delicacies in the Foodist Box - the subscribers are surprised with a different selection each month. When the Companists were first provided the opportunity to invest in Foodist in 2013, revenues were less than € 10,000 per month and the company had three employees. Just two years later, in the year 2015, monthly revenues were increased from € 10,000 to a mid-range six-figure sum. The company now employs 35 members of staff.

According to David Rhotert, the managing director of Companisto "Foodist is a very good example of how a seed can turn into a successful company with the help of crowd investments. The fact that the Ströer exit has occurred after just three years is a true success story for the Companists".

In addition to the equity-based crowdfunding on Companisto, Foodist also gained fame through the VOX TV show "Die Höhle der Löwen" and was one of the selected start-ups for the ProSiebenSat.1 accelerator in which promising start-ups were provided with coaching and media support.

Prior to the company sale to Ströer, the media company ProSiebenSat1, the packaging and logistics company BB Pack and the three founders Alexander Djordjevic, Ole Schaumberg and Andreas Brandt invested in Foodist in addition to the Companists.
