Nigerian ed-tech startup ScholarX has raised US$100,000 towards an intended US$200,000 pre-seed funding round to launch new products and grow its team.

Launched in Nigeria in July 2016, the ScholarX app allows users to select parameters and scroll through lists of available scholarships that match their requirements.

The startups has proven popular with a variety of accelerators in the last 18 months or so, having taken part in the global WISE Accelerator and the Cape Town-based Injini ed-tech incubator last year, and being named part of the third Google Launchpad Africa accelerator cohort in March.
