First A receives money from prominent founders
The quick pharmacy delivery service has received a six-figure funding. So far, First A's service is only available in Berlin's Prenzlauer Berg district.
Fast-casual pharmacy delivery service First A has raised a six-figure sum and can boast prominent investors. As Gründerszene learned from founder Antonie Nissen, the investors are Gorillas founders Joerg Kattner, Felix Chrobog and Ronny Shibley, as well as brothers Felix and Florian Swoboda.
So far, the delivery pharmacy offer is only available in Berlin Prenzlauer Berg, but soon other districts and other German cities will follow. To enable delivery within 30 minutes, First A works with local pharmacies, from which the suppliers buy the drugs and products and bring them to the customers. There is a fee of €2.50 for this, and so far only over-the-counter medicines can be ordered.
Nissen founded the start-up with her brother Leif Löhde, and today 20 employees work for the Berlin-based company. The app was launched in September of this year.
