The days when South African companies could hope to escape the attention of cybercriminals are long gone. That became evident once again in February…
Cape Town and London-based mobility data company WhereIsMyTransport has raised a $7.5-million Series A funding round.
WhereIsMyTransport collects and provides access to public transport data, in addition to journey planning.
The company was started by Chris King and Devin de Vries in 2008 in Cape Town (pictured above, on right and centres, respectively with Dave New who joined as a founder subsequently). The company relaunched in 2015 after opening an office in London.
WhereIsMyTransport plans to use the $7.5-m it has raised to help with further international expansion
The publication said the platform has so far mapped 34 cities in Africa and are mapping cities in India, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
It said the tech company now has more than 750 000km of routes in 39 cities. The new investment is aimed at helping fund further international expansion.
The latest round follows another Series-A round closed in January last year, when the tech company raised $1.85-million in a deal also led by LiiL Ventures. Goodwell Investments also participated in the round.
