Nigerian startup Edves secures $120k funding from Chinook Capital, CcHub fund

Lagos-based edtech startup Edves has announced that it has secured a $120 000 seed round from two Nigerian investors: Chinook Capital and Co-creation Hub’s (CcHub) innovation fund Growth Capital.

The startup, which was founded in 2016 by CEO Dimeji Falana (pictured above) and COO Dare Adebayo, announced the investment in a post on Twitter last Friday (2 November).

The startup has developed school management software that is helping over 340 schools deal with admissions, payments, report cards, elearning and parent-teacher communication, among other things.
