The investment comes at the tail end of a year that has seen the platform experience 15x revenue growth.
Considered the largest edtech platform in the MENA region, Egypt’s Marj3 is set to grow further, following the announcement that it has raised a seed round investment from US investor, Expert Dojo, alongside several angel investors.
Launched in 2016 by Syrian entrepreneur, Sam Al-Ahmed, alongside Egyptian peers, Abdullah Samy and Ahmed El Gebaly, the platform initially connected users with opportunities from across the world and receives 2.4 million visits a month. The platform offers three main services; Marj3 Education allows students to find, compare and enroll in universities; Marj3 Courses allows users to do likewise for courses around the world; and Marj3 Scholarship allows users to search and compare over 10,000 funded opportunities and scholarships.
Demand for its services has grown exponentially this year, with the startup claiming that its revenue has grown by 15 times during the pandemic. The investment will be used to boost a new blended business model, according to the startup, which will also look to onboard more universities and expand its team.
“Expert DOJO are so pleased to have invested in what we believe is going to be the ground zero for educational information globally,” said Expert DOJO’s CEO, Brain Mac Mahon. “This team is poised for explosive growth over the 12 months and we are looking forward to supporting them with funds and connections ongoing.”
