Research paper on main e-commerce food delivery players in Europe and whether (and when) they are profitable. If these companies are not profitable, explain why (where do all costs go?), and why investors keep investing in these companies. It would be interesting in this case to explain the importance of Enterprise Valuation (‘EV’) as opposed to sole profitability. Indeed, many companies continue to attract investors, despite their negative profitability over the years. The main companies to keep review quickly/give examples of and how much money they have raised are the following: (1) Uber Eats; (2) Deliveroo; (3) Gorillas; (4) Getir; (5) Wolt; (6) Delivery Hero; and (7) Bolt Finally, one last section (perhaps one or two pages), could focus on the potential for growth of these companies (or any relevant ones if any) in the Middle East. An overview of the companies there and their revenue could be relevant.
