This latest capital infusion will help propel our growth in existing markets across KSA, Jordan, Palestine, Qatar, Kuwait, KSA and UAE, and drive further expansion into Egypt, Oman, Bahrain and beyond. It marks a new and exciting chapter for Edunation as we strive to become a leading Ed-Tech provider in the region and beyond. Today, Edunation is a proud partner to some of MENA’s top schools and academic institutions, providing them with a comprehensive and modular virtual campus tailored to each one of them.
We have been following Edunation for the last couple of years. We were keen to invest given the company’s strong standing and clear potential to be at the forefront of the MENA Ed-Tech scene.
“We have been following Edunation for the last couple of years” said Rubix. “We were keen to invest given the company’s strong standing and clear potential to be at the forefront of the MENA Ed-Tech scene”.
Founded in 2013 by partners Firas Jabbour, CEO, and Mahmoud Gabareen, CTO, with the aim of transforming the education sector through technology, Edunation has been showing promising signs of success from the beginning by securing its pre-seed investment in 2014 and another seed round in 2019, in both instances from angel investor Dr. Abdul Malek Al Jaber.
Edunation intends to utilize the recent fund in developing the platform even further while simultaneously growing its community. For that, Jabbour emphasized the importance of attracting exceptional local talent as we set up a data-science division to lead the company’s move towards Artificial Intelligence. Both founders believe this step will be a game-changer for students, parents, schools and teachers, not only with how they interact with the platform, but also with what they gain from its features, such as detailed insights and reports to identify trends, gaps, issues, and areas of improvement.
