Non-sexy industries can appeal to investors too

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The big story

While venture funding in Africa (like everywhere else in the world) has dropped in recent times, this past week was a good one for the region’s fintech ecosystem. TC reporter Tage Kene-Okafor reported on how Uber led a $100 million investment into African mobility fintech Moove as the startup’s valuation hit $750 million. He also wrote about how Zone raised $8.5 million to scale its decentralized payment infrastructure. And Annie Njanja reported on how Tanzanian payments company Nala‘s successful pivot to offer remittance service in 2021 also led to it building a B2B payment platform.

Analysis of the week

Dollars and cents

Non-sexy industries can appeal to investors too. Expense management startup Coast is going after businesses with so-called real-world field personnel and fleets to manage. It claims to have seen 550% revenue growth last year and just attracted another $25 million in equity funding.

Digital bank Onyx Private is pivoting to B2B. The YC-backed startup raised $4.1 million last year with the goal of serving high-earning millennials and Gen Zers. But then last week, it told customers it was terminating bank operations and closing their accounts.

Swiss fintech nsave, which is making banking in Switzerland accessible to people in countries with unstable banking sectors or those facing high inflation, has raised $4 million seed funding.

What else we’re writing

In its wide-ranging antitrust complaint against Apple and its iPhone business, the U.S. Justice Department takes specific aim against Apple’s massive financial business.
