Keik has secured an undisclosed amount of funding from Yves Guillemot, founder and chief executive officer of Ubisoft SA
The Lagos-based deliveries startup which launched July 2018 raised its seed funding in March of the same year worth US$230,000 in equity, plus less than US$100,000 in debt. That funding helped get kwik off the ground. And now, they have their second funding to help scale up their operations across Nigeria.
Kwik is a startup run by two Frenchmen and two Nigerians who see how delivery platforms help our society run smoothly.
According to CEO Romain Poirot-Lellig, delivery platforms have proven that they are a vital link to Africa’s last-mile delivery supply chains. He went on to say that his logistics platform is currently in the process of raising a Series A round.
Kwik is committed to business-to-business-to-customers (B2B2C) and business-to-business (B2B) customers who don’t have proper transportation of their documents or parcels.
Kwik delivers many things ranging from food, parcels, shopping goods, documents, groceries, electronics among others. However, the maximum weight its riders are allowed to carry in their Kwik box is 20kg.
