[ACCI-CAVIE] Since the Covid-19 crisis, online education platforms have been booming. Start-ups in the sector are attracting more and more capital and new companies are launching.
Almentor is an e-learning platform developed by an Egyptian startup. It allows Internet users to learn online through videos in various sectors. The startup was founded in 2016 by Ihab Fikry (pictured, center). The edtech has already raised about $14.5 million to support its growth in North Africa and the Middle East.
“Almentor offers a multitude of courses and lectures capable of nurturing young Arabs, enhancing their personal experiences and serving their career path by providing them with what they deserve to advance their careers on all fronts,” said Ihab Fikry.
The solution has a mobile app that is accessible only on Android. To access the training courses, it is necessary to create an account on the application or go to its web address via a browser. The user can then choose the class of a teacher rather than another. It should be noted that the content is in Arabic and most of the visitors and teachers are Arabic speakers.
Access to the classes requires the payment of a monthly fee. The fees are set at $7.5 and the categories are: arts and design; photography and film; human resources; management; lifestyle; theater; sports; business; corporate communication; digital media; sales and marketing; and technology. Almentor offers several choices to the user if he wants to be trained in a field.
In addition to the video content, the edtech has a library where users can enrich their knowledge. Moreover, the solution is successful with its audience, the mobile application has already been downloaded more than 50,000 times according to Play Store statistics.
