Courier looks at how the street food industry became a global powerhouse and meets the startups climbing to the top of the pile. We also check in with Rapha founder Simon Mottram and give an honest breakdown of the risks of crowdfunding.

Street food has come a long way from burgers and hotdogs. Brands are going global and high-rolling investors are queueing up for a slice. Courier looks at the innovations in tech, food, and marketing that are fuelling the next wave of street food’s success. 

We sit down with Rapha founder Simon Mottram to find out how he took his cycling accessory business from a startup to a lifestyle brand, wanted by the world’s biggest luxury conglomerate. 

We shine a light on how energy and telecoms upstarts Bulb and GiffGaff are making waves in sectors dominated by former state-owned mega brands. We quiz the founders on their top tips for new businesses preparing to take on the big players. 

Our international segment heads down under to seek out lessons in product quality from Australia’s best small producers.
