Four other Egyptian startups have obtained financing of less than $1m, with these companies so far not having announced the financial value they obtained.


A total of 10 Egyptian startups have raised about $55.3m since the beginning of 2021, according to online startup platform MAGNiTT. 

These startups have also announced the details of the financing they have received.

Four other Egyptian startups have obtained financing of less than $1m, with these companies so far not having announced the financial value they obtained.

A report published by MAGNiTT has been prepared based on the financial bulletins for the period between January and May.

The activities of Egyptian startups that received funding during 2021 varied between financial technology, shipping services, and e-commerce.
