DriveMe, Nigeria’s leading mobility technology company, has announced the closing of a pre-seed funding round with participation from Niche Capital, FM Capital and a few local angel investors. This funding will help with their local expansion and product development.
DriveMe is a company focused on driver sourcing, driver verification and driver matching for vehicle owners and fleet operators. Driver training for new and experienced drivers is also critical to the company’s mission, which is why it is digitizing and localizing driver training for Africa.
Instead of wins, DriveMe announces the launch of a revamped one-stop super platform, specifically developed to centralize access to products and service providers in the logistics and mobility industry. The new platform offers 4 main products: DriveMe for businesses, DriveMe for individuals, DriveMe for drivers and Driver Education.
Launching the new platform, Damilola Odunlade Akeju, CEO/Founder of DriveMe, said, “The logistics and mobility industry in Africa is highly decentralized and fragmented, making it difficult to access products and service providers. Research also shows that most urban cities in Africa face challenges such as poor urban planning, high traffic density, poor driver training, poor access to professional/verified drivers and a shortage of value to the driver profession, resulting in low driver earnings. . At DriveMe, we are committed to tackling these critical challenges one by one, using technology. »
