Nigerian startup Autochek secures $3.4m pre-seed funding round
Nigerian automotive technology company Autochek has raised a US$3.4 million pre-seed funding round to help it grow its operations and develop its platform.
Autochek aims to build digital solutions that will enhance and enable a seamless and safe automotive commerce experience across Africa, starting with Nigeria and Ghana.
It plans to use technology to transform the automotive buying and selling experience for African consumers, by creating a single marketplace for consumers’ automotive needs, from sourcing and financing to after sales support and warranties.
Disrupt Africa reported in September the newly-founded startup had acquired automotive marketplaces Cheki Nigeria and Cheki Ghana, previously part of ROAM Africa’s portfolio of leading online marketplaces, and Autocheck has continued to pursue an aggressive growth strategy by raising an investment round.
