The investment aims to digitise the cleaning industry and supporting the startup’s expansion plans throughout the Gulf.
Dubai-based Keno, an on-demand car-care platform has just raised an undisclosed amount of funding from Kuwait-based clean-tech startup JustClean. The investment works hand-in-hand with JustClean’s continuous efforts in digitising the conventionally offline cleaning markets.
Established and launched in 2017, Keno offers eco-friendly on-demand car services including washing, refueling, detailing, oil and tire change, battery maintenance and other features via a mobile application. The platform delivers a variety of on-demand services to one’s home, workplace or garage with environmentally-conscious substitute techniques that allow for the decrease of water usage by 99%.
“We’re very happy to confirm our investment in Keno because we see great potential for the continued growth of a company which has so much in common with JustClean. We truly believe in the potential this industry presents. With market penetrating rates rising, it is only a matter of time before this sector digitises,” says Mohammed Jaffar, CEO of JustClean. “Justclean’s vision of the cleaning space is strong and ambitious and that’s how we like it,” adds Kenan Mobayed, founder of Keno.
Keno is fully operational in Abu Dhabi and plans to go live all over the United Arab Emirates before the end of the year. The startup is also planning an expansion to Kuwait and Saudi Arabia which will be driven by the funds gained from this investment.
