In a new private funding round, Instacart’s valuation has more than doubled to US$17.7 billion since the start of the pandemic outbreak. 

The grocery-delivery start-up was founded in 2012 when grocery delivery was more of a luxury for consumers. Since the pandemic, Instacart saw a surge in demand as consumers were all staying home. In May, Instacart revealed to Bloomberg that they were on track to hit more than US$35 billion in grocery sales this year. 

Instacart is now available in more than 85% of US households and more than 70% in Canada. They have also added new stores recently, such as  7-Eleven and Sephora.
