Strengths
says, "Some very interesting technologies being employed. Founder is full of passion!"

Advice
says, "Focus on building sustainable competitive advantages, and don't underestimate your competition."
says, "Unit economics are everything here. Can this machine be profitable? How quickly can a customer breakeven from their investment?"

What Investors Say

LEAD INVESTOR
Invested $20,000 this round
I have chosen to invest in Yummy Future because of the great team, and the incredible opportunity that they are pursuing in the robotic coffee shops business. I firmly believe that robotic will be one of the game-changing opportunities for this era and they have a great vision not only in the coffee-making business but also in the whole catering industry. As the world shifting from labor-intensive to machine intelligence, their business will grow exponentially as more and more opportunities present themselves. Moreover, I have known the two founders for over 8 years now. They work down to the earth, embrace all the challenges, and have strong faith in this company. I have always wanted to invest in them before they even got into the YC two years ago, yet the opportunity finally come as they decided to give the community a way of investing and growing with them. So I strongly encourage you to join me support them in fulfilling their dream!
