Slide, a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform for GCC, raised $1.75 million in a pre-seed funding round. The round of funding witnessed participation from Unifonic through its investment arm “UnifonicX”, alongside a number of strategic angel investors from the region.
The startup is planning to use the funds to accelerate its regional expansion across the GCC region.
“We were overwhelmed by the response we received after our beta launch last year. It was only then when we realized that the opportunity was substantially bigger than what we had originally anticipated, which emboldened us to double down and accelerate our expansion across the region,” Faisal Albaraiki, Founder and CEO at Slide, said.
Slide was founded in 2021 and it provides businesses with a one-stop solution for social ordering via the business’s social media accounts. The startup manages all ecosystem partners required to receive online orders, including point of sales, payment gateways, last-mile delivery, and customer care.
