MoneyFellows eyes Asia, Africa expansion following $31mn series B round


Egyptian money circles app MoneyFellows has raised USD 31mn for its series B round to support growth—in terms of services and geographic expansion. Regarding the latter, the company plans to expand across Asia and Africa as it views the money circles segment in both regions as largely untapped and ripe for disruption. Service expansion will be in terms of expanding its product offerings across the B2C and B2C segments.

The mobile platform secured funding from CommerzVentures, Middle East Venture Partners, Arzan Venture Capital, Invenfin and National Investment Company. Existing investors Partech, Sawari Ventures, 4DX and P1 Ventures also participated.
