About SendChamp as a Nigerian Startup.
Founded 8 months ago in stealth mode, by Goodness Kayode and Damilola Olotu as they aim to improve customer relationships for technical and non-technical business owners. The close of the round also marks the public launch of the startup’s offerings, as it exists in private beta.
How SendChamp Angel Funding happened
The $100,000 angel round had the participation of local angel syndicates such as DFS Lab, Hustler Capital, HoaQ Club, and Velocity Digital, and angel investors including Prosper Otemuyiwa, Samson Goddy, Merijn Campsteyn, Ayo Arikawe, and Lanre Ogungbe.
“We’re thrilled to have concluded this round, backed by some of the most helpful investors in the African ecosystem. As a company, we’re committed to helping African businesses improve their relationships with their customers by building the simplest solution on the market.
We have a lot more non-technical business people than technical and we are building largely for them. We want technical and non-technical business people to be able to communicate effectively with their customers via multiple messaging channels from a single platform,” said Kayode.
Although the startup is just coming out of its private beta, SendChamp has already worked with businesses such as TeamApt, Bumpa, Selar, Flux, and Edves to reach and engage customers. Over the last few months, it has helped these companies power over three million messages to more than 300,000 customers.
How the funding is planned to be utilised
SendChamp intends to use the raised capital to deepen product development and expand its team. The startup also recently expanded its presence to Kenya.
“SendChamp is building the core communications layer of the digital commerce stack on the continent and they’re leveraging no-code tools so that sellers large and small can easily manage their audiences and grow their businesses.
This team has a world-class knack for customer-centricity and DFS Lab is extremely excited to back a team that can execute at this level,” said Stephen Deng, partner at DFS Lab.
