Along the way, TheLorry has also received funding through the Cyberview Living Lab Accelerator programme, under WatchTower and Friends Accelerator which boosted business. The company has since raised close to US$10mil from reputable venture capital and institutions such as SPH Ventures, PNB-Inspire Ethical Fund, First Floor Capital and Axiata Digital Innovation Fund.

To date, MoneyMatch has completed its pre-Series A in April 2019 led by Cradle Seed Ventures, while the company’s Series A1 fundraising round was closed back in late 2019.
