Nigerian startup, Rise.ng has secured a $150,000 pre-seed round as it is set to launch it business operations in the country.
The tech startup said it wants to revolutionalise service delivery as it focuses on the low-income earners; majorly artisans and vendors that do not have access to digital/online visibility to increase its customer base as that is the starting point of search for such services, especially in the post-coivd19 world.
It basically offers artisans/vendors that use its platform access to a dashboard that allows them to advertise and promote their services or products with a safe finance setup that makes their payment seamless and secure while the user in turn also gets to work with a vendor/artisan that is verified with insurance cover in case of eventualities.
