UAE’s Home Services Platform Rizek Raises $10 Million Series A Funding

Rizek connects service professionals directly with customers, offering a wide range of home services.

Founded in 2019 by Abdullah Abu Sheikh and Ahmed Marzui, the platform connects customers directly to service professionals, offering a variety of home services such as maintenance, cleaning, tutoring, and more.

Rizek, a UAE-based on-demand home services startup, raised $10 million in a Series A funding round. After having secured $3.5 million in a Seed round in June 2020, it maintains its momentum as one of the fastest growing Abu Dhabi startups.

“There are many service-based economies in the region, but what we’ve done differently is ensure our processes are optimised and consistently up to date. Our mission is to be the one-stop shop for all services across the region, allowing both suppliers and consumers to maximize on their values and benefits,” said Abu-Sheikh.

It has been hailed for becoming the world’s first app to provide at-home Covid-19 vaccination bookings.
