12 July 2022
Grab Same Day Delivery has won The Iconic Business Bursary in the competition’s first year. A fully independent Irish-owned company, Grab is owned and operated by CEO James Redmond, COO Darren Boylan, and CCO Liam Bourke.
Grab, which provides Irish retailers with the technology to provide same-day delivery, said it prides itself on giving Irish businesses a fighting chance against global giants such as Amazon. Grab has built its software over the last six years to enable it to provide this user-friendly, modern, and visual service, with full traceability from store to door in real-time.
In 2022, Grab has more than 40 drivers working on their app. At the beginning of 2022, Grab released its latest software solution to ensure the company continues to stay ahead of the current delivery market.
“Winning The Iconic Business Bursary means so much for our business – It’s like we have won the lotto,” said James Redmond, CEO, Grab Same Day Delivery. “Since we started in 2018, we have used several opportunities to grow our business, but winning this bursary is enormous for us, enabling us to grow our business with a flexible workspace at Iconic, as well as grow our brand awareness with media support from Newstalk, and marketing services from Marketing Network Group.”
Iconic Offices launched The Iconic Business Bursary in April of this year, in partnership with Newstalk and Marketing Network Group. The Bursary competition received a record response, with almost 100 entries in its first year. Worth €100,000 to the winner, the bursary package offered a €50,000 workspace package at Iconic Offices, including private office space; reputable marketing services from Marketing Network Group to the value of €25,000; along with €25,000 worth of media coverage, profiling the winning business on Newstalk.
“Although the quality of the entrants we received for The Iconic Business Bursary was extremely impressive,” said Joe McGinley, Iconic Offices CEO and founder, adding that Grab Same Day Delivery has “a clear mission and have cleverly identified their niche, with an obvious market fit given their trading to date. Changing market dynamics are going to play into their favour.”
The aim of The Iconic Business Bursary is to help support an established business in their growth phase by taking care of the key overheads, such as office space and marketing, so that they can place their focus into accelerating their business and progressing with their next steps.
