Nigerian Shipping Company, Topship Joins YC’s Winter 2022 Batch

Topship, a Nigerian shipping company, has been accepted to Y Combinator’s Winter 2022 Batch.

Founded in 2020, Topship wants to make shipping as easy as booking an Uber ride from one place to the other. By doing this, the company hopes to connect African merchants to global trade while promising fast, efficient, and easy ways to ship from, within, and outside the continent. 

By getting into YC, Topship will have access to the seed fund and other investment opportunities following graduation in March. The company hopes to expand to other countries in Africa, build the global distribution system for the movement of cargo by leveraging on initiatives like the AfCFTA and hire amazing people to do more exciting work to meet the company’s mission.

Commenting, CEO and co-founder Moses Enenwali believes that Topship’s entry into YC strongly affirms and validates the company’s path to be the ultimate shipping platform for African businesses.

“We’re beyond excited to be a part of this batch and this strongly affirms our mission to build the global distribution system for the movement of goods within and beyond Africa”
