Klikit, a Singapore-based startup that helps restaurants across Southeast Asia take back their power in food delivery, exited in stealth mode with $2 million in pre-seed funding.
The round was co-led by Global Founders Capital and Wavemaker Partners, with participation from Gentree Fund, AfterWork Ventures, Reshape Ventures, Nordstar, Pentas Ventures, Moving Capital, Gojek co-founder Kevin Aluwi, NasDaily’s Nuseir Yassin, YouTuber Lazar Beam, and Radish Fiction founder Seung-yoon Lee.
Strategic angel investors include executives from Gojek, YouTube, and Flash Coffee.
The startup’s new funding was used during stealth mode to hire 30 people in six countries. It will also use the capital for regional expansion and to add more features by building its engineering team.
Since launching seven months ago, klikit’s SaaS platform, klikit Cloud, has been used to service more than $2.8 million in orders across 150 brands in the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Singapore, Taiwan, and Australia.
Klikit is now working with creators with a combined following of 38 million in the Philippines and Australia to launch two “creator drops” in late 2022.
Users include Bistro Group, the Philippine franchisee of TGI Fridays, Hard Rock Cafe, Buffalo Wild Wings, Flash Coffee, and ghost kitchen startups MadEats and Just Kitchen.
