InGame Sports gets cash + in-kind support in pre-seed round

Egyptian gaming startup InGame Sports has raised an undisclosed pre-seed round led by international VC Openner. The company said it had received the equivalent of USD 1 mn in “cash, in-kind resources and grants,” but declined to disclose how much money it had raised when asked by Enterprise yesterday. Multinational data provider Sportradar is providing the company with free access to its services and a grant as part of the round, co-founder and Managing Partner Mohab El Tawila (LinkedIn) told us.
