HumanSquad a ,Nigerian immigration startup has announced securing a 6-figure pre-seed investment led by Calm Fund to boost its development of proprietary immigration tech products.
HumanSquad was founded by Tunde Omotoye (CEO) and Temilola Adebayo (COO & Head of Storytelling) in 2020 as an immigration tech company that connects immigrants to resources, products, and customized support.
According to Omotoye, the fundraising came exactly two years after the company launched in June 2020 and it would enable the company to move more effectively in all of the areas that are key to its success. As part of the funding, the company is also getting invaluable support from the strong network of other founders and VCs within Calm Fund.
Omotoye said: “The past 2 years have been filled with incredible progress. We’ve been building other sub-products under HumanSquad , hiring, getting recognized in Canada’s startup ecosystem, and getting ready to ship a study abroad product to its first users in a couple of weeks. Everything started with just two people until now.”
“In terms of product, we will continue the development of our proprietary immigration tech product as well as the study abroad product which we have been building in the past few months. Our vision is to create products along the immigration value chain that are world-class in terms of usability and simplicity,” he added.
Omotoye said the company is constantly pushing the boundaries of what immigration products have to offer. “We foresee that there will be an entirely new category of APIs built on top of our products within a few years, and we want to be at the forefront of the development.
“We will also be hiring some extraordinary software engineers, marketing leads, and design experts to join us on our journey. Joining HumanSquad at this stage is a perfect opportunity for those who enjoy taking ownership and want to play a significant role in the evolution of our products and HumanSquad as a company,” he said.
