Al Gooru, Saudi’s EdTech platform, raises $1.8m in a seed round

Al Gooru, a KSA-based EdTech platform that provides students with private tutors on an on-demand basis, raises $1.8m in a seed round. This round witnessed participation from RAZ Group, RZM Investment and RAY Investment.

“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 modernize and upgrade how complementary education is delivered in our region, one step at a time,” Khalid Abou Kassem, Founder of Al Gooru, said.

The platform plans to use these funds for growth activities in the EdTech sector through widening their network of A-class partners.

“Technology is the future, and adapting to the continuous 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.” said Omer Awad, Head of Product.
