Last week, Maple officially announced its plans to launch a better food delivery service next year. The news was welcome with great fanfare (see a selection of stories below) and we couldn’t be more excited. A couple of our favorite entrepreneurs, CEO Caleb Merkl and COO Akshay Navle were working with High Peaks as an EIR and Venture Partner respectively when they founded the business, one of the most promising investments we made over the summer. We are excited to be part of Maple along with renowned chef and entrepreneur David Chang of Momofuku and other investors including Thrive Capital and Bessemer Ventures. Maple is will deliver delicious and healthy prepared meals to customers looking for more compelling food delivery options. We wanted to share this news with our friends at High Peaks as we look forward to supporting Caleb and Akshay in the development of this new culinary experience, and we hope you will also join us in enjoying their food! To find out when it launches in your neighborhood, sign up at www.trymaple.com. Bon appétit!
