$6.5 million raised by Edutech Almentor

‘’To promote the understanding of knowledge among people, it is vital that we promote science communication in a big way. Language should not be a barrier but a facilitator in this task” To fulfill this vacuum Dr. Ihab Fikry and IbrahimKamel founded Almentor.net in 2016 as an online video learning platform to compensate for this lack of online learning content for Arabic speakers. There is a large number (400 million) of Arabic speakers in the world, yet the number is increasing.

How Almentor works

In collaboration with hundreds of leaders, educators, and experts, the platform offers courses and talks in various fields like health, humanities, technology, entrepreneurship, business management, lifestyle, drama, sports, corporate communication, and digital media in the Arabic language. The recent series B fundraising is another jewel in their crown, In 2016, Almentor closed a $3.5 million seed round and two years ago raised $4.5 million Series A led by Egypt’s Sawari Ventures. It charges users a subscription to access its library of 12,000 videos

Why it is a unique and promising platform

• As most of the video learning platforms prepare their content by outsourcing. In this organization the content is produced in-house (done within an organization by its own employees rather than by people from outside)

• Its corporate client can customize the video library according to their needs.

• The platform has a video-on-demand component that enables learners to stream content. What they said

" The vision and reason behind starting Almentor is we understand that in our region of more than 100 million people, of which 90% cannot properly learn with any other language other than Arabic"

Dr. Ihab Fikry
(Co-founder and CEO of Almentor )

" It's been an amazing journey with two fantastic mission-driven entrepreneurs who have been executing on bold vision since 2016"

Cyrillic Collon, General partner at Pantech

" A video is an effective form of communication that needs to be integrated into each and every aspect of life", this attitude of Almentor is not only helping users to learn but it is also changing their life.
