Why did we invest?
Akinon’s founder team is formed by successful entrepreneurs who previously exited Turkish ecommerce company Markafoni to Naspers. The company differentiates itself from the competition with its microservices based headless infrastructure allowing rapid time to market and easily scalable infrastructure. Akinon is the market leader in Turkey and is also active in 17 countries. Dominating the local market, Akinon has started to build an international sales team and to launch a global partnership program for the global go-to-market.
