Baims, an EdTech startup in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Jordan, Bahrain, and Turkey, raised $4 million in its Series A funding round led by AK Holding with participation from Al-Wazzan Educational Group, Rasameel Investment House and other investors.
“We are thrilled to have the support of our investors, who share our vision of providing accessible and affordable education to students across MENA. Baims is short for Big Aims. It was chosen because it is characteristic of young people, especially university students, who have their whole life and possibilities ahead of them and have big aims for the future,” Yousef Al-Husaini, CEO of Baims, said.
Baims plans to use the funds from this Series A funding round to accelerate the development of its innovative platform, increase its marketing efforts, and develop new educational content and services.
Baims’ mission is to provide accessible and affordable education to university and high school students across MENA, regardless of their background or financial situation. The platform allows top instructors to teach and students to study anytime and anywhere at a fraction of today’s cost, making high-quality education accessible to everyone.
