Kezakoo, a Casablanca-based ed-tech startup specialized in tutoring, has completed its first round of financing of 2 million dirhams (US$221k) to complete and enrich the range of products that it currently offers for the benefit of all high school students in Morocco.
The investment was from investment company Witamax One, which was jointly created by the Morocco-based investment firms Southbridge A&I and AXXAM Family Office. The funding will also assist the startup to support its organizational development efforts.
This offer, which will cover the Moroccan high school program (Arabic and international stream, French option) would be more complete and improved, with teachers and nationally recognized content, and a dedicated mobile application.
In order to remain accessible to all learners from different social strata and regions, the kezakoo.com web platform and its mobile application will remain mainly free and at the same time offer additional features at affordable prices.
