Mecenat has passed 900,000 downloads of their app

The Mecenat app was launched in 2011 and quickly became established among the students. With more features added the use increased, and that is a continuing trend . Purchase through the app has grown by 68 percent since 2013, and displaying the digital Mecenat card has increased by 85 percent during the same period.

"We launched the Mecenat app at an early stage and we have been responsive to student's needs and feedback when developing new versions. They are ahead of curve in usage and feature requests and take it for granted that new technology should work without problems . That has been the beacon for the Mecenat app and also made it successful" says Jonas Levin, CEO at Mecenat AB.


The first year the Mecenat app had more than 200,000 downloads. It got a major update and was nominated "Best app rocket" in the Swedish mobile awards 2013. Then the number had doubled. In 2016, it will pass one million downloads.
