The investment round was led by Mountain Partners and business angel, Dr Cornelius Boersch. The European Investment Fund, the founders of Trivago, and business angels Alexander Fugger, Ron Hillmann and Martin Scherrer have also put money in, as have Lendico co-founder Clemens Paschke, the founders of Radcarpet and former Rocket chief operating officer (COO) Ferdinand Kalm.”

“Traditionally, the financial services sector in Nigeria is highly informal and customers end up paying more money than they should. The reason is that there is no centralised information source for comparing services. TopCheck is changing this with its online platform that is equally optimised for desktop and mobile,” founder, Thomas Pilar added.

The funding will be used to expand Topcheck’s team of 10 and grow into new markets.
