Afrikrea, the Ivory Coast-based startup, has raised a $ 6.2 million pre-Series A funding round and rebranded as “ANKA”.
Originally founded in 2016 as an online marketplace for selling and buying African-inspired clothing, accessories, arts and crafts, Afrikrea recorded 250% year-on-year growth. They pivoted last year to become an all-in-one SaaS solution providing a seamless e-commerce service for African micro-retailers, reinforcing their bright vision: bridging Africa and the world, but on a bigger scale.
We are very proud to support Anka and to contribute exporting Africa growing business on the global stage!
