Steve O'Hear is Strategy VP at Zapp, one of the earliest quick commerce companies that bring snacks and groceries to your door.

In this episode we talk about:

  • Opportunities for disabled people in the post-pandemic remote work environment

  • The “make the moment or save the moment” problem solving of philosophy of Zapp

  • Why they’re expanding from crisps and ice cream to luxury brands and electronics

  • Why they limited discounts when rivals were “throwing money” at customers

  • How quick commerce developed before the pandemic made it so popular

  • The $200m Series B funding round that attracted Lewis Hamilton’s attention

  • What’s inside the giant warehouse that keeps all Zapp’s stock
