Nigerian Startup Rísé.ng secures $150k Pre-seed Funding

A Nigerian company called Rísé.ng has raised $150,000 through a pre-seed round to help it establish its operations in Nigeria.

According to the tech firm, its goal is to revolutionize service delivery. It will focus on low-income earners, including artisans and vendors who don’t have digital/online awareness. This will allow it to grow its userbase as this is where people are looking for such services, particularly in post-coivd19 times.

Rísé.ng, which was founded in 2019 by Olawunmi Oyedeji, plans to develop its pan-African network of markets in the foreseeable future.

Rísé was inspired by ‘Try My Job,’ a reality TV show in which prominent figures swap occupations with their fans for a day, providing a platform for SMEs to exhibit their products and services.

Rísé takes use of this to provide the best selection of artists and vendors for anyone’s day-to-day needs.

It provides artisans/vendors with a platform that allows them to promote and advertise their products or services with a secure finance arrangement that makes payment easy and safe. The user also has the opportunity to work with an authenticated vendor/artisan, who is insured in case of unforeseeable circumstances.

Technological disruption is changing the world. It has an impact on everything, from how we learn to how we get medical advice to how we shop.

Customers have a multitude of options for marketing their business via e-commerce platforms. All users have to do is look at what’s in their marketing funnel and make the best decisions possible.

Rísé.ng, for example, is focusing on craftsmen and vendors of small companies, particularly those with little or no social media presence.

Online platforms can help gifted rural artists to maintain their livelihoods, whether that’s expanding their reach or negotiating a higher price for their products.

The next stage of e-commerce has arrived, propelled in part by the increasing number of small companies moving their operations online. E-commerce startup companies are helping shops to establish their online presence and build a brand.

It’s simple to rank in the search engines and generate regular traffic to your store if you have an online presence or e-commerce firm. This traffic can eventually be converted to paying clients if you use the right marketing strategies.
