Kenyan startup mSwali has raised pre-seed funding to expand its flagship product

mSwali, a Kenya-based mobile-based learning startup, has raised an undisclosed amount in a pre-seed funding round to expand its flagship product mSwali quiz from the Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) app to the web app.

Founded in 2020, mSwali is a mobile-based learning games developer that originally created learning games for the African market. The company’s flagship product, mSwali Quiz, is a USSD and app-based quiz game and it enables players to learn a lot about African countries and the entire continent.

mSwali is on a mission to increase the desire and curiosity to learn more in the African adult population. The company does this by developing and promoting a fun, rewarding and easily accessible mobile-based learning game. mSwali firmly believes that knowledge is power and its learners contribute to the knowledge of sports players and their overall well-being.

Speaking about the company, Patrick Mungai, co-founder and CEO of mSwali, said,

“mSwali is a platform that aims to increase the desire and curiosity of the African adult population to learn more, using mobile-based learning games that are fun, rewarding and readily available. We believe that knowledge is a force and it enhances the overall well-being of people. There are very few mobile-based learning games that focus on the African adult population, but instead we have hundreds of betting and gambling platforms spread across the continent.

Pre-seed funding will enable mSwali to develop a web app as it expands into South Africa. Currently, the mSwali quiz is available in Kenya.

mSwali, which means m for mobile and swali for question in Swahili, has its ethics and culture as a curiosity and curiosity to learn more by asking questions.

Interested users in Kenya can dial * 397 # from their Safaricom line to play the mSwali quiz.
