Co-Founder of Australia’s #1 Ecommerce Group The Catchgroup
Co-founded Catch.com.au, and then exited to Wesfarmers for $230 Million.
Co-founded Eatnow which merged with Menulog in early 2015, and exited to The JustEat group for $855M.
Gabby, together with his brother Hezi, has built multiple businesses worth over $1 Billion in combined exits. The Leibovich brothers have been behind some of Australia’s most well-known brands including Catch of the Day (now known as Catch.com.au), EatNow (merged with Menulog), and Scoopon.
Starting out buying and selling products on eBay, Leibovich came across an American website that offered daily product deals for 24 hours or until stock ran out. He decided to work with his brother to bring the concept to Australia as catch.com.au. After 13 years building Catch from a garage, the business was fully acquired by Wesfarmers in 2019 for $230 Million.
Along with Catch, Gaby also co-founded Eatnow.com.au, an online food delivery service which ended up merging with Menulog in early 2015, eventually exiting to The JustEat group for $855 Million.
Now, Leibovich is an investor in around 20 tech businesses and startups including Luxury Escapes, Catapult, Zip, Tribe, Hipages, and Fiverr. He has also written a book called Catch of the Decade, that’s filled with lessons from his entrepreneurial journey.
