Tunisian ed-tech startup GoMyCode has raised $8m in Series A funding to boost its growth.The firm, which offers online coding courses, said it plans to use the new capital on marketing activities as well as expanding partnerships with educational institutions.
The company also provides coding courses and exams to professional developers
“We’re addressing a demand that almost no other company is capturing at our scale ” said Yahya Bouhlel, CEO and co-founder of GoMyCode.
“Local traditional training centers offer outdated content and methodology, and international online players struggle to enroll African students, due to their lack of understanding of local markets and unaffordable price points. We have a blended education model, we teach in twelve local languages and we’re positioning ourselves as a regional leader. I want to thank our investors for believing in what we’re doing, and I’m excited for what’s to come.”
The company plans to use the funding to expand its team, product development and customer acquisition.
GoMyCode is dedicated to helping you become a world-class developer. The startup uses a blended model comprising offline and online learning to offer training in web and app development, artificial intelligence, data science, user experience, video game development, and business intelligence.
The Series A funding will help GoMyCode grow its presence in 12 countries, including South Africa, Kenya, Ghana and Saudi Arabia, and expand its presence in countries where it is already established.
