Cairo: Egyptian on-demand laundry app Makwa has raised a six-figure US dollar funding round to help it grow its team, upgrade its tech and expand into new verticals.
Founded in 2018 by Aly Eteiba, Makwa is a mobile app providing dry cleaning and laundry pick-up and delivery services. Customers use the app to schedule pick-up and delivery slots, give any special instructions, track orders, pay, and give reviews.
Makwa partners with high quality vendors in the areas in which it operates who clean customers’ clothes while following its stringent specifications. So far, it has completed more than 2,500 orders and processed over 30,000 items of clothing.
The startup has now raised a six-figure round from an unnamed customer angel investor, which it will use to scale its team, upgrade its technology, and accelerate expansion into new areas.
“Our goal is to offer our customers a convenient, hassle-free and enjoyable customer experience, and at the same time deliver a reliable and consistent product and service,” said Eteiba.
