Termii’s entry into the Ivory coast comes just two months after it closed a $1.4 million seed round to drive its expansion across Africa.

Following the raise, CEO, Gbolade Emmanuel had disclosed that the startup would leverage the capital to launch in more countries on the continent, citing Algeria as one of the likely destinations.

With the addition of its second francophone African market, Termii is now fully operational in Nigeria, Morocco, Kenya, Ghana and Ivory Coast.
