Bastian Lehmann – CEO – Postmates

Bastian is the CEO of Postmates, the on-demand delivery company he co-founded in 2011. The idea was conceived when he was relocating from Munich to London and he struggled with finding a simple solution for moving goods around a city. He later pursued this notion of “ride-sharing for stuff” through AngelPad in San Francisco, where he met his co-founders. Before Postmates, he co-founded and spent time at 12snap. Here he managed marketing budgets for Adidas and Lufthansa and helped European startups in product related roles.


Kevin Gibbon – Co-Founder & CEO – Shyp

Kevin started Shyp in 2013 to make shipping items anywhere in the world as easy as two taps on a smartphone. An engineer by training, Kevin previously founded Shoparound, an iPhone application that garnered a top 100 ranking. Prior to that, he led the Boeing engineering team, where he was responsible for creating the organization’s first iPad application approved for cockpit use. Under Kevin’s leadership, Shyp has raised over $60 million in venture capital from venerated investors including Kleiner Perkins and SherpaVentures. Watch this space.
