TLcom Capital has led a $10m Series A investment round in SeamlessHR, a human resources (HR) and payroll technology company in Africa.

Other investors in the round included global VC firm, Capria Ventures, existing investors, Lateral Frontier Ventures, Enza Capital, and Ingressive Capital, as well as several strategic private investors.

Andreata Muforo, Partner at TLcom Capital, said: “Over the last few years, SeamlessHR has consistently demonstrated its ability to deliver a robust HR and payroll platform for Africa’s medium and large businesses.”

“The strong execution shown by Emmanuel and his team is a vital ingredient required to build a successful business and as they expand their products to include embedded finance and launch their solutions to new markets, we're proud to partner alongside them and strengthen their push to unlock more value within Africa's B2B space. At TLcom, we believe SeamlessHR can be the preferred platform for businesses to digitise workplaces and support their personnel.”

Will Poole, Managing Partner at Capria, added: “SeamlessHR is addressing the needs of African enterprises in ways that the global giants can’t compete with by building customer-centric SaaS designed from the ground-up to address complexity unique to the continent”. He added, “Now that they’ve proven they can address the needs of disparate countries across Africa, we are confident that they will be the solution provider of choice to support their customers that are expanding globally.”

This new capital will be used to further strengthen SeamlessHR’s position as Africa’s leading cloud HR and payroll platform.

It will provide means to grow the team, fuelling expansion across the continent to Southern and East Africa, with South Africa and Kenya as operation hubs respectively.

The company will also add new product functionalities around artificial intelligence and HR data analytics.

SeamlessHR will also be launching new embedded finance products that will improve the lives of working people in Africa.
