Kevin Aluwi, the co-founder of Gojek, helped secure $2 million in pre-seed capital for the Singapore-based F&B software-as-a-service platform Klikit.
Global Founders Capital and Wavemaker Partners jointly led the financing. Gentree Fund, AfterWork Ventures, Reshape Ventures, Nordstar, Pentas Ventures, and Moving Capital are other backers.
Instead of utilizing several applications or phones for various locations, Klikit’s software enables businesses to integrate and evaluate all of their food delivery orders on a single mobile device.
85% of the digital delivery market in the Asia Pacific, according to Klikit, is represented by the major applications GrabFood, Foodpanda, GoFood, and UberEats, with whom the firm has formal API partnerships. According to Klikit, these APIs give organizations the ability to send changes and get 24/7 data analyses.
Klikit was started in 2021 by Christopher Withers, a former executive of Gojek and UberEats. A total of 150 brands in Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, Australia, and the Philippines have placed orders for food delivery through the business worth over US $2.8 million so far.
To launch a limited edition, delivery-only food brand, Klikit is also collaborating with creative and consumer brands. With two “creator drops” later this year, the program will debut in the Philippines and Australia.
Along with Aluwi, executives from Gojek, YouTube, and Flash Coffee, as well as YouTuber LazarBeam, Radish Fiction’s creator Seung-yoon Lee, and NasDaily’s Nuseir Yassin, participated in Klikit’s pre-seed round of angel investing.
