One of the more factual things about human life is that it must find a through every situation rather than around it. If we try to avoid doing the needful, the negative ripple effects do rise to the fore sooner or later. This create a dynamic where we actively work towards becoming solution-oriented, therefore preparing ourselves for all sorts of scenarios. Now, when you do so in a productive manner, it becomes a well-integrate trait, which helps us out across different stages. Being solution-oriented is largely the reason why we were able to scale up and turn into the most dominant species to walk the earth, and it was also why were able to discover a generational tool like technology. However, while technology duly solved much of our problems, it also introduced some new ones by bringing in complex procedures and giving them the keys to literally everything. Fortunately, we have organizations out there solely constructed to guide us, and one such organization has just received a major financial boost.
Skio, a startup purposed around enabling Shopify-powered brands in regards to selling subscriptions, has successfully raised a sum of $3.7 million from a recently-concluded seed funding round. The New York-based startup basically functions by taking up the responsibility for managing and scheduling payments. Apart from it, the company does the work of building customer portals, managing subscriptions, organizing SMS subscriptions, and all what comes with establishing a consumer-facing business. Having started its journey only in April 2021, Skio has already managed to reach some towering heights. The company’s current clientele includes Bev, MatchaBar, Remedy Organics, Quokka Brew, Muddy Bites, Barukas, Simulate, Red Bay, Dandelion Chocolate, Siete Foods, Doe Lashes and Backbone. On the back of a fresh financial boost, however, Skio is now expected to make even bigger additions to the list.
An aspect worth exploring here is the driving force behind Skio’s success. If company’s claim is to be believed, it has the technology to put-together these offerings in a much quicker way than what we consider the norm right now.
“With this quicker building, we’re able to do better than current solutions with one-click checkout with Shop Pay, which increases conversions; passwordless login, which reduces customer tickets; 10x faster subscription editing; a ready-to-go headless subscription portal that leads to instant loads; group subscription discounts, and an easy migration,” said Kennan Davison, founder of Skio.
The seed funding round was led by Adjacent, while MuteSix’s Daniel Rutberg and Moody Nashawaty, Shaan Puri, Italic CEO, Jeremy Cai, Tilt co-founder and Magic Mind founder, James Beshara, and many more also joined in as participating investors.
