Moroccan Edtech Startup Smartprof Secures Funding Boost to Expand Operations
The round was led by Fuze, a prominent player in funding Francophone African startups.
The company’s platform allows students to find tutors for a variety of subjects, including math, science, languages, and more.
Smartprof’s platform also provides students with access to learning resources, such as practice problems and study guides.
The funding will be used to expand Smartprof’s operations in Morocco and to grow its team.
The funding for Smartprof is a sign of the growing interest in Edtech in Africa.
The continent is home to a young and growing population, and there is a growing demand for quality education. Edtech has the potential to help African students access high-quality education, regardless of their location or socioeconomic status.
Smartprof’s latest round of investment is expected to help the startup make a significant impact on the education sector in Morocco and help African students achieve their educational goals.
