Botme, a Cairo-based chatbot building platform has raised six-figure seed investment, the startup told MENAbytes today. The investment came from regional angel investors.
Founded in 2017 by Saaid Elhakeem, Soliman Abaza, and Hosni Ahmed, Botme enables businesses and individual users to build chatbots for Facebook Messenger and web through its user-friendly platform without having to write any code.
The platform also allows users to sell (natively) through the chatbots they’ve created. The chatbots created with Botme could also be used for customer service and lead generation.
Botme uses a freemium subscription model, offering its platform for free to users with 500 or less active bot users and charging a 2 percent transaction fee on orders received through bots created with Botme. The paid plans start from $15 a month.
