Kenya’s Education technology startup M-Shule has received investment from Canada’s Engineers Without Borders bolstering her SMS based learning platform.
Launched early this year, M-Shule makes and delivers learning experiences for each child and empower schools , through its adaptive, mobile learning management platform in a move geared at helping to empower children across the continent.
“What we love about M-Shule’s platform is that its holistic and unifying approach arms stakeholders in the primary school ecosystem with data-driven tools critical for improving the quality of education for all students. We are delighted to welcome M-Shule to our portfolio where they join other bold teams defiantly tackling some of the world’s most challenging problems,” said Nicky Khaki, managing director for EWB Ventures.
Heavy demand for Education has seen increased number of startups in the sector with several investors putting in their money to cash in on future prospects.
Claire Mongeau, chief executive officer (CEO) and founder of M-Shule, said she was excited to work with EWB Ventures, given its deep expertise, commitment to ongoing support, and shared focus on groundbreaking and sustainable change.
The high growth in Kenya’s population has spawned the ballooning of universities and academies across every neighbourhood and education technology seeks to cut the cost of brick and mortar helping to bring down the cost of education.
