Namibian business-to-business e-commerce startup JABU confirmed to the TechCrunch online platform that it has raised a $3.2 million financing round.
According to TechCrunch, the seed round, which was closed last year, welcomed investors such as Afore Capital, Y Combinator, FJ Labs, Quiet Capital, Kli Capital, Pareto Capital and unnamed angels.
Namibian founded tech startup JABU Logistics launched the first version of its app “JABU” on Monday, 20 December 2021 on Google Play. The much anticipated application follows after the launch of the JABU Whatsapp shop which was launched earlier that year. The WhatsApp shop allowed JABU customers to place orders via WhatsApp, one of Namibia’s most frequently used messenger applications, connecting users directly to a JABU customer service agent. Customers can now skip the middleman, download the JABU app on Google Play and place orders directly from the app.
Available to all, the app is but another way in which JABU aims to make the ordering process as convenient and as accessible as possible for its customers. Free and fast to download, the e-commerce platform is a user-friendly way that customers can buy and receive hundreds of products at the touch of a button.
The first version of the JABU app is now available on Google Play for android users and future versions will soon be available for iOS users on the Apple app store.
