Nigerian mobility fintech startup Moove secures $105m Series A2 round for expansion.

Moove, a Nigerian mobility fintech startup, has raised US$105 million in an oversubscribed Series A2 round to help it expand to seven new markets in Asia,MENA , and Europe over the next six months.

Moove is democratising vehicle ownership in Africa by providing revenue-based vehicle financing to mobility entrepreneurs. It was founded in 2019 by British-born Nigerians Ladi Delano and Jide Odunsi.

Moove may leverage proprietary performance and revenue analytics to approve loans to drivers who have previously been barred from financial services by integrating its alternative credit scoring technology onto ride-hailing, e-logistics, and instant delivery platforms.

In Moove-financed vehicles, over three million rides have been completed in six markets – Lagos, Accra, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Nairobi, and Ibadan – and three product categories – cars, trucks, and motorbikes.

“Less than two years ago we discovered this whitespace of mobility fintech and launched Moove. Having now surpassed over three million trips in Moove-financed vehicles across Africa, launched in six new cities and connected thousands of ambitious mobility entrepreneurs to ride-hailing, e-logistics and instant delivery marketplaces, we’re now leading this growing category within fintech,” Delano said.

“But there are still millions of budding mobility entrepreneurs in emerging markets across the world who have limited or no access to vehicle financing and marketplaces that are facing critical supply issues. With this new fundraise, we are well-positioned and well funded to help solve this global problem. We’re delighted to have the support of leading investors across the globe who will be integral in enabling us to take our Nigerian-born model to the world.”

Odunsi said Moove was working hard to create disruptive and impactful tech solutions to solve real-world problems.

“The Moove model that we’ve pioneered in Africa providing revenue-based vehicle financing to mobility entrepreneurs can be applied anywhere in the world, which is why we’re excited to be expanding to new emerging markets in Asia and the MENA region. As we scale, we remain committed to empowering women, leading the electrification of the mobility space and driving financial inclusion. These ideals are at the core of what we do as we continue to build a sustainable and impact-driven global business,” he said.

Julius Tichelaar, partner at AfricInvest, said his company was focused on supporting and growing companies it believed will go beyond their own borders and become regional champions.
