Egypt-based Career 180, a career advising platform, has raised $100,000 in a seed funding round from EdVentures. The startup will allocate the investment to further develop its online platform and expand its different career advising workshops across governorates in Egypt.
Established in 2016, Career 180 is a career knowledge network that aims to qualify youth for the job market. The startup provides online and offline activities that aim to engage and cater to different career paths. The startup’s online presence offers live mentoring and career advising sessions alongside career advisors and coaches while its offline offering includes events such as Egypt Career Summit, career marathons, and different corporate and startup summer internship programmes.
“We constantly aim at empowering youth, and that’s why we are keen to keep collaborating with Career 180 and investing in the startup to help them expand their valuable services. This will enable youth to develop their skills and capabilities to meet the market needs,” said Dalia Ibrahim, founder of EdVentures and the chief executive officer (CEO) of Nahdet Misr Publishing House.
“We have been working with EdVentures over the past period, and we are quite excited about the investment round that will support the expansions we are about to execute, as we will be able to help more students and graduates with their career future,” said Shrouk Alaa and Mohamed Akmal, founders of Career 180.
