Investment in Edtech startups with a main focus on the MENA region

The adoption of innovative technologies such as AI, gamification, VR, AR, and other emerging trends has made Edtech an indispensable component of modern education systems, rapidly transforming the way students learn. This surge in innovation has led to an unprecedented increase in investment in the EdTech industry, with investors pouring billions of dollars into the sector. MENA is one of the regions that is experiencing remarkable growth in the industry, and by 2050, it is expected to be home to over 270 million children, adolescents, and youth (0-24 years). Investors are recognizing the enormous potential that the region offers. As the CEO of EdVentures, the first corporate venture capital (CVC) firm specialising in EdTech in the MENA region, Dalia Ibrahim will provide valuable insights during her talk into the latest trends, developments, and investment opportunities, as well as the challenges and possibilities that lie ahead for this emerging region in the Middle East and North Africa.
