Selected 2019

Oscar Pierre

  • Current company Glovo

Oscar Pierre is the co-founder and CEO of Glovo. He was selected as an Endeavor Entrepreneur in October 2019 during the Istanbul ISP.

Oscar Pierre began his training as an Aerospace Engineer at the Polytechnic University of Catalonia and finished his studies at Georgia Tech (Atlanta, US). While at university, he founded Zikkomo.com, a platform for student scholarship solidarity in Malawi, and LoveItLocal.es, a marketplace aimed at boosting local craft businesses. Oscar began his professional career at Airbus in Toulouse. However, after only 6 months, he decided to look for new challenges.

Oscar wanted to create a new business. Inspired by the sharing economy business model he saw in the United States in apps like AirBnB and Uber, he had an initial idea about on-demand delivery of products. His company would connect people, so those with time can pick up and deliver things for those who don’t have it. For him, it was a matter of speed and correct execution. While in the ideation phase, Oscar met Sacha Michaud, who joined Glovo as a co-founder. In March 2015 they delivered their first order in Barcelona.
