The company’s Co-founder and CEO, Tunde Omotoye, who confirmed the development in a statement on Friday, said that the fund will help the startup boost its development of proprietary immigration tech products.
HumanSquad, which is an immigration tech company, connects immigrants to resources, products, and customized support.
The Canada-based startup was founded by Tunde Omotoye (CEO) and Temilola Adebayo (COO & Head of Storytelling) in 2020.
According to Omotoye, the fundraising came exactly two years after the company launched and it would enable the company to move more effectively in all of the areas that are key to its success.
As part of the funding, the company is also getting invaluable support from the strong network of other founders and VCs within Calm Fund.
“The past 2 years have been filled with incredible progress. We’ve been building other sub-products under HumanSquad, hiring, getting recognized in Canada’s startup ecosystem, and getting ready to ship a study abroad product to its first users in a couple of weeks. Everything started with just two people until now,” said Omotoye.
“In terms of product, we will continue the development of our proprietary immigration tech product as well as the study abroad product which we have been building in the past few months. Our vision is to create products along the immigration value chain that are world-class in terms of usability and simplicity.”
The company is constantly pushing the boundaries of what immigration products have to offer.
“We foresee that there will be an entirely new category of APIs built on top of our products within a few years, and we want to be at the forefront of the development,” added Omotoye
The company will also be hiring some extraordinary software engineers, marketing leads, and design experts to join on its journey.
Joining HumanSquad at this stage is a perfect opportunity for those who enjoy taking ownership and want to play a significant role in the evolution of our products and HumanSquad as a company.
