The Morocco-based logistics startup Colis.ma announced it secured US$50,000 from Kenya accelerator The Baobab Network, an African tech accelerator, according to media reports.
The Moroccan startup has raised US$50,000 in investments, as part of an acceleration program in which four other startups have raised the same amount each.
Colis is digitizing the tracking process for parcel transportation, allowing customers to customize their experiences throughout the app.
Christine Namara, Head of Ventures at The Baobab Network, said, “Once again we have witnessed the power of African innovation first-hand with this incredible cohort of start-ups.
“Their passion, creativity, and determination to solve pressing challenges in their communities and ecosystems have been truly inspiring. We are proud to have been chosen to join them on this journey and looking forward to seeing their transformative impact in the African ecosystem and beyond as we go for scale,” Namara added.
For Issam, he found the experience to be a transformative milestone for Colis.ma. He said: “The insights and guidance we’ve garnered through their exceptional accelerator program have not only influenced our course but also provided us with a clear roadmap to scale and reach new heights.
The Baobab Network stands out because of its commitment to supporting founders on an individual level, not solely focusing on the business aspects. Each interaction echoes their unique human touch and genuine care – their approach is both inspiring and distinctive, ” Issam Darui, Founder & CEO at Colis.ma said.
