Avify, the innovative inventory and sales management platform, has successfully concluded its pre-seed funding round, reaching an impressive total of $800,000 USD. This milestone was announced just days into the month of December, solidifying Avify's position in the market and opening new opportunities for its growth.
Prominent Investors Back Avify
Avify's pre-seed funding round saw the participation of renowned investment funds, including 500 Startups, Zemu VC (China), Ganas Ventures (USA), Amplifica Capital (MX), Venture DO (Dominican Republic), Qapu VC (Peru), Caricaco (Costa Rica), and distinguished angel investors such as Jaime Matus, Rafael Barroso, Adriel Araujo, among others. This strong financial backing comes from various corners of the investment ecosystem, highlighting confidence in Avify's potential.
The raised investment will be strategically used to drive the continuous development of Avify's conversational commerce engine and establish a network of contracts for consignment order management and physical points. Additionally, Avify's operations will expand to several countries in Central America, solidifying its regional presence.
Focus on Operational Efficiency
Avify provides its users with a subscription platform that centralizes inventory, enabling a direct connection to sales through WhatsApp. This integration updates both digital and physical channels in real-time. The automation of manual processes, such as creating shipping guides, sending orders, updating inventory, and processing payments, positions Avify as an essential tool to improve the operational efficiency of any business.
Pedro Gutiérrez, CEO & Co-founder of Avify, expressed enthusiasm about the future: "The investment will allow us to advance our commitment to providing cutting-edge solutions for all businesses." He also noted their excitement to undertake projects that will benefit not only their company but also the business community and many merchants in the region.
Avify recently secured the first place in the Startup Avenue Competition in the Seed & Early Stage category during the Volcano Summit 2023 in Guatemala. This achievement not only highlights the quality of their proposal but has also been instrumental in attracting the attention of investors and funds, giving them the opportunity to share their story and vision.
Commitment to the Business Community
Looking ahead, Avify intends to strengthen its academy through workshops and free resources, expanding its in-person events to countries like Guatemala and Honduras, where they have gained a greater presence. This underscores their commitment not only to business growth but also to the development and training of the entrepreneurial community in the region.
Avify, with its founders Pedro Gutiérrez, Pilar Sánchez, Pablo Gutiérrez, and Alexis Gonzalez, all residents of Costa Rica, currently has a customer base in various countries, including Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, Dominican Republic, Mexico, and the United States, anticipating continuous growth in the coming months.
