KSA-based edtech AlGooru raises $1.8 million in Seed funding with the participation of RAZ Group, RZM Investment, 100 Ventures, RAY Investment, and esteemed angels from Oqal Angel Investors. Founded by Khalid Abou Kassem, AlGooru was launched in 2021 to build an online platform that harmoniously connects students with a pool of competent private tutors on-demand. The platform provides ease, diversity of offerings, and seamlessness. It offers students a facilitating method of connecting with specialized tutors: 3 simple clicks. AlGooru’s app is currently available in both stores.
AlGooru aims to further connect with a wider network of partners that will allow the exchange of best practice knowledge to improve. The platform targets an A-class team of talents that is focused on changing the game for the private tutoring arena. As one of the founding members and the Head of Product, Omer Awad, describes: “Technology is the future, and adapting to the constant high-tech novelty will transform education. Our team is rapidly expanding and through the wealth of data that we’ve accumulated, we know what the market needs and how we can capitalize on it.”
The funding will allow AlGooru to widen its scope and expand its growth in the edtech kingdom. AlGooru’s founder, Khalid Abou Kassem, commented on this milestone by saying: “While edtech is lucrative, it's still an unattractive industry for many in our ecosystem. Deal numbers can justify this. But we’re changing that. All while building a solution that will modernise and upgrade how complementary education is delivered in our region, one step at a time.”
