This trend is redefining commerce around the world and showing no signs of slowing down. According to a recent report, on-demand companies have received over $4.8 billion in capital investment, with $2.2 billion invested in the last 12 months alone (theondemandeconomy.org). The on-demand transportation industry has received over $2.1 billion in financing and on-demand food delivery services are revolutionizing the $683 US restaurant industry.
