MAX.ng is a mobility platform that connects users to a network of vetted professional motorcycle-taxi drivers (known as MAX Champions) via mobile apps. MAX is building technology infrastructure and financial services to make mobility safe, affordable and accessible to 1 billion Africans. The mobility startup provides safe, affordable and accessible rides, helping its customers weave through Africa’s mostly unpaved and congested roads quickly and safely. It has completed over 1,000,000 trips and is one of Jumia’s largest delivery partners in West Africa.
MAX.ng, which has a strong presence in South-West Nigeria, intends to grow its geographic footprint rapidly, adding customers across Nigeria, Ghana, and Ivory-Coast. The company is at the intersection of mobility and financial inclusion – two important priorities for the uMunthu Fund. Goodwell is convinced MAX.ng can deliver on its mission to address the mobility challenge in major cities across Africa, while also empowering every day citizens.
