Since Instacart started in 2012, we’ve expanded to 25+ markets and partnered with 100+ retailers across the U.S. Our mission is to transform everyday life by seeking & solving seemingly impossible problems. Instacart is a technology company that offers a platform connecting grocery shoppers with customers -- the only one affording delivery in as little as one hour.
