We are excited to announce today that we’ve closed a round of funding from Zeytin Limited, Venture Kinetics, Nest HK and other angel investors.
Since we started Ongair over 12 months ago, we’ve seen great growth in Instant Messaging globally and a rising demand for a platform that allows businesses to have a more personalised, and efficient channel to keep in touch with their customers.
Messaging platforms are the fastest growing in the world and have eclipsed traditional social and communication platforms. Over 700 businesses worldwide across 45 countries have signed up to use Ongair. And we’re just getting started.
With the additional funding
we are aiming to expand into new markets especially South East Asia where channels such as WeChat are used by over 700M users monthly and by 10M businesses.
“We are very excited about the growth the company is experiencing and believe that with this additional capital, network and strategic input, the company can grow even faster and scale into Asia with Nest’s support to set up in Hong Kong and enter China” said Aaron Fu, Managing Partner, Nest.
"With a presence in Hong Kong, Europe, Africa and US, Nest is an ideal partner as we continue to scale our business globally," said Trevor Kimenye, CEO of Ongair
We are also excited to announce that we now fully support WeChat, Facebook Messenger, Telegram all available today at https://ongair.im. SMS and Viber expected to be completed in early 2016.
