Singapore’s klikit raises US$2M to bridge restaurants and creator economy
Singapore-based food delivery software startup klikit has announced the completion of US$2 million in pre-seed funding led by Global Founders Capital and Wavemaker Partners.
Gentree Fund, AfterWork Ventures, Reshape Ventures, Nordstar, Pentas Ventures, Uber alumni syndicate Moving Capital, and Gojek Co-Founder Kevin Aluwi also participated.
Other angel investors involved include NasDaily’s Nuseir Yassin, YouTuber LazarBeam, Radish Fiction Founder Seung-yoon Lee, and unnamed executives from Gojek, YouTube, and Flash Coffee.
klikit will use the funds to help restaurants across Southeast Asia grow their business with the more efficient food delivery and extra revenue from virtual food brands.
Established in 2021 by Christopher Withers, a former executive with Gojek and UberEats, klikit aims to help restaurants operate more efficiently through its SaaS platform, klikit Cloud, which aggregates and analyses all of a restaurant’s food delivery orders on a single mobile device.
To date, the startup claims to have facilitated over US$2.8 million in food delivery orders across 150 brands in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia.
Klikit is also partnering with creators and consumer brands to develop limited-time offerings of virtual delivery-only food brands sold to fans. The initiative will kick off in the Philippines and Australia with two “creator drops” and digital collectibles later this year.
