South African artificial intelligence (AI) startup GotBot has raised a ZAR2.5 million (US$171,000) funding round from venture capital firm CapaciTech to accelerate new developments and expansion plans.


Founded in 2016 by Nick Argyros and Chris Green, GotBot is a social commerce and customer experience solution that enables clients to easily communicate with customers, through Facebook Messenger, Twitter, WeChat, Skype, SMS, and web chat conversations.


Clients include Toyota, RCS, African Bank, Nissan, Flight Centre, Sanlam, Home Choice and Old Mutual Finance, and the startup has now secured funding from CapaciTech to speed its growth. 


“The funding will be used to bolster our development and operations teams, in order to accelerate the build of new functions and features for our platform,” Argyros said.
