IDLC Venture Capital Invests In Barikoi2 min read

IDLC Venture Capital, IDLC Asset Management Limited’s alternative investment wing, has recently invested in BariKoi Technologies Limited. Barikoi is a software company building mapping solutions for businesses and government agencies in Bangladesh, said a press release.

Md Al-Amin Sarker Tayef and Sadman Sakib founded the startup in 2018 to build Bangladesh’s geo-spatial mapping infrastructure.

Global mapping solution providers lack the high volume of data required for local operations. Barikoi’s mapping infrastructure fits this market gap and has built some of the best location-based SaaS products.

“We’re thrilled to secure local institutional investment in Bangladesh despite the funding winter, highlighting our business strength. With these funds, we plan to accelerate our go-to-market push and expand our services to more businesses in Bangladesh,” said Tayef, co-founder and CEO of Barikoi Technologies Limited.

Syed Javed Noor, Partner of IDLC of Venture Capital Fund I and Deputy Managing Director of IDLC Finance PLC., said, “We believe Tayef, Sadman, and the Barikoi team will successfully steer the company in the right direction to optimize the operations of businesses and government agencies of Bangladesh through accurate and precise geospatial data.”
