UAE-based EdTech Qureos raises $3m in a pre-seed round

Qureos, UAE-based EdTech startup, raises $3 million in its pre-seed round led by COTU Ventures, and Colle Capital with participation from global and regional investors, including Globivest, Plutus21 Capital, Dubai Angel Investors, and AlZayani Venture Capital. ​​Several angel investors also took part in the round.

Founded in August 2021 by Alexander Epure, Mehrad Yaghmai and Usama Nini, Queros aims to accelerate careers by making mentorship more accessible.

“We believe that new learning models like Qureos, which combine cohort-based, synchronous education with community, are going to become more mainstream and disrupt traditional players. We’re excited to be a part of this journey and seeing the team’s vision of upskilling talent become a reality,” Amir Farha, Founder and Managing Partner at COTU Ventures, said.

Qureos is building an experiential learning community to change how people connect, learn and work. It is helping people from over 127 countries learn in-demand skills through cohort-based learning paths led by world-class industry experts that match the hiring demands from its business partners.

Qureos plans to use this investment to build product-led operations and expand its remote-first team with a focus on hiring talent for their offices in the UAE, Pakistan and India.
