The edtech startup has created an innovative solution that supports cultural education for your learners as it creates simplified content that is engaging for young readers.

Mohamed Osama, Founder of Akhdar provides insight into the overall aims of the startup and the direction in which it aims to grow its business model.

“Akhdar started with the aim of providing simplified summaries and information about different books for people who didn’t have time to read. Back then, we didn’t have a very clear vision of what we wanted to achieve. We worked very hard with the limited resources we had to build our platform and to be able to continue presenting useful content. Now, we are quite excited about the coming period, our new partnership with EdVentures will add a lot to our business especially with Nahdet Misr’s extensive experience in education and content creation.”

“Business is always a struggle. There are always obstacles and competitors. There is never an open road, except the wide road that leads to failure. Every great success has always been achieved by fight, every winner has scars. The men who succeed are the efficient few –they are the few who have the ambition and will-power to develop themselves. So choose to be among the few today.”
