OjaExpress, a digital marketplace for ethnic and cultural groceries, has been accepted into Techstars Kansas City Accelerator for 2020. For being selected, OjaExpress will receive $120,000 in funding.
OjaExpress enables users to shop online from the comfort of their homes for ethnic, cultural, and religious ingredients. It works with independent grocers who sell these difficult to find ingredients.
The Nigerian backed startup was founded in 2015 by two Nigerians Boyede Sobitan and Fola Dada-both based in America.
“We are excited about being selected as a Techstars Kansas City company. We feel aligned with the Kansas City leadership team, and we look forward to what we will achieve,” says Boyede Sobitan, the CEO/Co-Founder of OjaExpress.
“The global Techstars network is so powerful and robust and we are grateful for the opportunity to be a part of it and learn from our peers and those who went through the program before us.”
“There are so many immigrants in the US that are underserved, and many of the stores that serve their needs don’t have the technology and capabilities to provide the same level of services as larger chains- we hope to fill this gap and alleviate the pain point for both with our solution,” says Fola Dada, the CTO/Co-Founder of OjaExpress.
“Being a part of TechStars will help OjaExpress serve our customers better, and get us one step closer to our vision of becoming the United Nations of Groceries at Your fingertips.
