Ethiopian talent marketplace Gebeya raises pre-Series A funding to drive growth

The Ethiopia-based Gebeya, a SaaS-enabled, pan-African talent marketplace, has announced an undisclosed pre-Series A investment from a Japanese VC firm to drive its ongoing expansion.

Headquartered in Addis Ababa with offices in Kenya and Senegal, Gebeya connects startups, SMEs, and multinational corporations with vetted, skilled talent and professional services in more than 30 countries across Africa.

The company has raised various rounds of capital since being founded six years ago, including a US$2 million back in 2020 that made up part of a wider US$4 million seed round, and has now banked an undisclosed pre-Series A from Inclusion Japan (ICJ), a Tokyo-based VC firm that has made Gebeya its second investment in Ethiopia after mobility startup Dodai.
