Kenyan on-demand logistics startup Sendy has raised US$3 million in funding to expand its operations, the company’s co-founder told the African Angel Investor Summit in Cape Town yesterday. Launched in 2014, Sendy offers a marketplace for last-mile package delivery and logistics services, allowing customers to send packages and documents using a mobile application that connects them to motorcycle riders, and drivers of vans and pickup trucks. It also has a ride-hailing service. The startup was one of 20 selected to take part in the World Bank-backed XL Africa accelerator programme, and was pitching to investors at the African Angel Investor Summit yesterday.
