In the rapidly evolving world of technology,

In the rapidly evolving world of technology, coding has become a crucial skill for the younger generation. Egyptian ed-tech startup iSchool, founded in 2018, is at the forefront of this educational revolution. It has raised $4.5 million to expand into six additional MENA countries and establish a presence in Ireland. The company offers live, gamified coding classes for students aged 6-18, covering AI, VR, app development, game development, and web development. With over 26,000 live learners and over 10 million lines of code written by its students, iSchool has managed national-level initiatives in Egypt, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE. The funding round was led by ๐•๐ž๐ง๐ญ๐ฎ๐ซ๐ž๐–๐š๐ฏ๐ž ๐‚๐š๐ฉ๐ข๐ญ๐š๐ฅ, followed by ๐Ž๐ง๐ž๐’๐ญ๐จ๐ฉ ๐‚๐š๐ฉ๐ข๐ญ๐š๐ฅ ๐”๐Š, Webit Investment Network, and ๐Ž๐ซ๐š๐ฌ๐ž๐ฒ๐š ๐‚๐š๐ฉ๐ข๐ญ๐š๐ฅ. The funds will also support technological scaling for the online coding platform and the extension of its gamified online classroom app service throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. This move signifies a promising future for digital education, paving the way for a new era where coding literacy is as fundamental as traditional literacy and numeracy.
