Nigeria startup Kwik delivery intends to expand outside of its original market in Lagos after closing $2 million in fundraising. CEO Romain Poirot-Lellig revealed their plans to The Africa Report.
Romain expects the company to have operations in Abuja in January 2021. Apparently, there are plans to scale outside Nigeria with Abuja, Ghana featuring top of the list. The $2 million raised was equally divided among Nigerian and international investors.
Kwik began operation in Lagos in June 2019 and the company provides B2B and B2C delivery services. Parcels varying from pharmaceutical products, foodstuffs, care spareparts, and hair extensions were delivered by the mobility startup during the lockdown.
Lagos is Africa’s most densely populated city and faces lots of delivery challenges. The situation is worsened by the hectic traffic situation facing the city.
