Bosta, Egyptian on-demand delivery startup, raised a new investment from Fawry, Egypt’s leading electronic payment provider, that wasn’t disclosed yet but it was confirmed it’s a six-digit $ round. It’s Bosta’s third investment in less than 9 months, as it raised $225,000 in two more seed rounds from Cairo Angels and Numu Capital earlier this year.

Bosta connects businesses to a courier to deliver their packages, just like Uber and Careem connect people to drivers. Through Bosta app, business owners can request as many deliveries as they want with a push of a button and monitor their deliveries while it is being delivered.

“We are very excited on this investment, it complements our vision to scale ecommerce in the Egyptian Market, we are proud of the fact that Egyptian talent is capable of providing world class technology solutions” said Ashraf Sabry, Chairman  & CEO of Fawry.
