Topship Is Backed by YCombinator
This company joins other successful companies like Flexport, Stripe and Dropbox who have all been through the popular accelerator program.
The founders founded the company in 2020, when the world was in lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic. They realized that people wanted safer and cheaper ways to move goods in and out of the country.
This was the proof that the problem existed, and Topship was created by the founders with their industry experience.
Topship hopes to make shipping as simple as booking an Uber ride. The company hopes to connect African merchants with global trade and will offer fast, efficient and easy shipping options from within, outside, and across the continent.
Moses Enenwali (co-founder and CEO, Topship) spoke out to confirm and support the company’s vision of becoming the best shipping platform for African companies. “We are beyond thrilled to be part of this batch. This strongly affirms the mission of Topship to create a global distribution system for goods movement within and outside Africa.”
Topship will be able to access the seed fund and other investment opportunities by joining YC after graduating in March. The company plans to expand into other African countries, create a global distribution system for cargo movement by using initiatives such as the AfCFTA, and hire incredible people to fulfill its mission.
Topship was created to help African merchants reach new markets through reliable, global shipping solutions.
