Jesper Buch net worth $113 million
Jesper Buch (born 30 August 1975 in Vamdrup) is a Danish entrepreneur, investor and co-founder of Just Eat. He graduated from Kolding Business School in 1995. He spent four years in the military, pursuing a career as a lieutenant lieutenant. In 1998, he opened a restaurant in Blokhus and sold it for a profit after one year, before founding Just Eat in 2000, which nine years later became the world’s largest provider of fast food.
For the first couple of years, from 2000, Jesper Buch operated Just Eat from a cellar while struggling to make the company profit. When Just Eat started making profits in 2004, he traveled to England and set up a branch there. In 2008, he decided to step down as director of Just Eat, and he moved to Spain before selling his shares in Just Eat in 2011 for a huge million.
Buch has over the years invested in many different start-up companies such as Miinto, GoMore, Autobutler and Mentaline.com. He is also part of the TV series The Lion’s Cave on DR1, where new entrepreneurs have to sell their inventions and business ideas to well-known and established men and women from business.
