Local startup Uvodo announces the closing of the $300K pre-seed round from local angel investors including re-investment by the co-founders. The funds will be used on product development and team expansion as stated by the team.
The team behind Uvodo is the same team who recently sold Nextsale to a US based software company for over a million dollar price.
Below is a piece from the official announcement:
Digital agencies and freelance developers are struggling to deliver flexible eCommerce solutions for their merchants. Since there is no foundational building platform for eCommerce developers, developing core eCommerce solutions every time from scratch causes losing time and money.
With our domain expertise from the previous eCommerce projects, we saw the pain points of online merchants. Those pain points include limitations of customization, shared-data, and high-cost maintenance and optimization. With the evolution of eCommerce and customer experience trends, requirements are changing fast. And, developing customized eCommerce solutions to meet merchant’s ever changing needs requires investing additional time and money. Thus, this results in burnout and slowing down the performance of developers.
That is the main idea behind Uvodo – a self-hosted, headless platform for eCommerce developers. It is an eCommerce building engine for digital agencies and freelance developers to increase their velocity.
Our mission is to help eCommerce developers speed up the transition of retail to eCommerce fastly on a global level, and we set our goal to become their first choice among eCommerce building platforms.
