Lewis Hamilton may be maintaining a low profile from the world over the course of the F1 off-season, but the seven-time World Champion is busy behind-the-scenes as it has been confirmed he is now an investor in a grocery delivery start-up company.
Hamilton has put up some cash as part of a larger $200 million dollar investment into Zapp, a London-based start-up.
According to NBC Chicago, Zapp did not disclose their valuation at the end of an intensive funding round led by several prominent venture capital firms, and nor did they disclose the size of Hamilton's stake.
Zapp was founded in 2020 and aims to allow people buy groceries from small warehouses built with the sole purpose of quickly fulfilling online delivery orders.
The deal sees Hamilton add to his off-track business ventures, in addition to his 2019 investment into vegan burger restaurant chain Neat Burger.
