Jesper Buch started one of the world’s biggest E-commerce successes which is known today as just-eat.com (Group).
The company was started in 2000 in a basement in a small town of Denmark and by 2004 it was breaking even. A year later, Jesper decided to do it all over again, so he travelled to the UK where he founded just-eat.co.uk. In addition to his role as CEO of the UK branch, he also managed to start up sites in Holland, Iceland, Sweden and Ireland.
By the summer of 2008, Jesper retired as CEO and sold shares to Index Ventures. He then moved to Spain (Marbella) where he started SEED, investing in new startups.
The same year, Jesper also founded Mentaline.com, a place for psychologists and coaches to handle clients online.
In 2009 Jesper co-founded Miinto Group which is one of today’s fastest growing internet fashion companies in the world with online stores in 7 countries. Miinto is considered Jesper´s “child” and “chapter 2″
In 2011 Jesper sold his shares in Just-Eat.com and celebrated this by walking “Camino de Santiago, 850 km from France to North-West Spain”. That was how chapter 1 was closed.
By the end of 2012, Jesper has written and released a book about his personal story. The book documents the 10 years, efforts and thoughts that went into building Just-Eat.
Jesper has won a lot of E-Commerce prizes and is considered one of the top internet entrepreneurs in Europe.
