Groupon

No matter which city you live in, Groupon is a name that you most likely know. Since 2007, Groupon has been offering deals, each for one day only, in a variety of cities.

At its peak, Groupon was valued at $25+ billion dollars and was getting $6 billion offers from companies like Google.

Shiftgig

Shiftgig is a platform that allows service industry professionals ranging from servers to bartenders to get jobs. Businesses use the site when looking to hire, short or long term. Founded in 2012, Shiftgig has created a name for itself in just a mere three years, and has received a great deal of funding. In a city where the food industry is ever booming, a service like Shiftgig thrives. Most recently, Shiftgig received $10 million of Series A funding in 2014.

GrubHub

Founded in 2004, GrubHub is the nation’s leading online and mobile food ordering company. In 2006, GrubHub’s co-founders won first place in the University of Chicago Edward L.
