Van Campen Liem assisted OneLoad in raising their most recent investment from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, following the recent equity investment by the International Finance Corporation.
The Gates Foundation is one of the largest charitable foundations in the world and its primary goal is to end poverty globally through initiatives in health, education, and financial inclusion.
Oneload is Pakistan’s leading micro-retailer digitization and payment platform used by over 50,000 small shops across Pakistan, enabling its retailers to deliver telecom, digital payments and banking services to over 7 million unbanked customers each month. The investment will support OneLoad’s efforts to bring more rural merchants into a digital ecosystem, enable increased digital transaction usage among low-income individuals, and provide additional financial services to the under-banked population.
The VCL team consisted of Saman Sadeghi, Oya Derindere, Robin de Meester, Ilona van den Bergh and Maarten Duijnker.
Van Campen Liem acted for Rabbit in what marks as the largest pre-seed funding round in Africa and the Middle-East.
The USD 11mio financing round was led by Global Founders Capital (Rocket Internet) with participation from Foundation Ventures, Goodwater Capital, RAED Ventures and MSA Capital.
Rabbit, an on-demand grocery delivery company with the promise of delivering groceries within 20 minutes of its micro-fulfilment centers, has been in stealth mode since June and only launched last month.
Many congrats to Ahmad Yousry and the rest of the Rabbits on this very important milestone!
