New-age content platform Social Swag, which is a collective brainchild of Akshay Kumar, Rana Daggubati Collective Artists and Mahesh Bhupathi, on Friday said it has raised USD 3.5 million in a pre-Series-A funding round.

“We are excited to welcome our new investors and our focus will remain to create a platform where various people will find relevant content for themselves across different products.

“These would be a mix of entertainment, self-development, skill enhancement and passion content,” Rana Daggubatti, an accomplished actor, entrepreneur and co-founder of Social Swag, said.
