Nigerian fintech startup Bridgecard has raised a USD 440 K pre-seed funding round to expand its user base and build out its platform. The round included the likes of ABV Fund, Ingressive Capital, Voltron Capital, Venture Platform, Velocity Digital, and Berrywood Capital. Other angel investors in the round include Johnson Yaya, Kennedy Ekezie and Duke Ekezie from Kippa, and Miracle Anyanwu.
Bridgecard merges a user’s cards, bank accounts, and fintech wallets into one card and an app, allowing users to perform online transactions, pay bills, and withdraw from any linked account. Bridgecard plans to use the funding to increase the number of bank accounts that can be linked to it, expand to support crypto wallets in supported countries, get the product in the hands of more people, and solve online and card payment issues better.
