Eko App Secures $20M In Series B Funding

Eko Communications, the mobile-first collaboration, and business messaging startup based in Thailand have successfully raised $20 Million in series B funding.

The finance is led by SMD Ventures, with participation from AirAsia’s digital investment arm Redbeat Ventures, Gobi Partners and East Ventures will help the company to expand its business across Europe, the UK, and the US.

He further added,

Eko app Communications is working towards making it easier for companies to transit their communication source to a more secure and efficient system with APIs to help them integrate legacy systems.
