Goodfynd

Valor co-leads the seed round of Goodfynd, a Washington-DC based fintech solution focused on the needs of food truck founders.  Co-leading the round is Houston-based Artemis Female Fund. Our two female-led venture funds are combining forces to back a female-led fintech firm in its early growth.

Founded by Sofiat “Sofi” Abdulrazaaq, Lemaire Stewart, and Kyle Miller, Goodfynd is a marketplace and contactless payment system for food trucks. Its diverse team bootstrapped, built its own proprietary tech and is growing 100% QoQ since its launch in March 2020. Over 500 food trucks are  on the platform.

Goodfynd is the first platform to create full visibility for a 3 party transaction ( the parking lot owner, the truck owner, and the customer). This is a legit new infrastructure for a nicely growing, entry-level segment of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, food trucks. It’s also in a sector, food service, hit hard by COVID-19 and needing recovery–tools like this will help fuel growth.

 The founders are in love with the human story of food truck owners–the front lines in the food service recovery post-COVID-19.

  • Food truck owners are often minority-led enterprises. (Chicago stats say 80% of food truck owners are minority.)
  • Goodfynd is passionate about helping rising entrepreneurs from minority demographics succeed in this “Entry level” food entrepreneurship enterprise. Goodfynd is very aware that it’s easier to start a food truck than a restaurant or even a catering business, so they feel it really helps entrepreneurs launch. 
  • They are on a mission to make more successful founders in the food industry.

The food truck industry has experienced an overall revenue increase of 300% from 2014 to 2017 and is a $1.2 billion dollar industry poised to take off even faster, food entrepreneurs rightsize and look for tools to support growth through the economic recovery.
