Kidato, a Kenya-based online education platform, has completed a US$1.4 million seed round from participants such as Launch Africa Ventures, Learn Start Capital, Century Oak Capital, Graph Ventures, and several other local and regional angel investors.
The investment will be used for the company’s growth and further product development.
Founded in 2020, Kidato offers online learning services, including online academic and after-class education, to K-12 students (ages 4-18).
The company has been accepted into Y Combinator in January, and earned a US$125,000 investment from the program. According to the website, over 799 students have thus far enrolled Kidato for academic learning and after-school classes like coding, music, art, chess, languages, and sports.
