Sghartoon, Tunisian-based Teletherapy Startup Raises $150K to Expand

Sghartoon, a Tunisian-based teletherapy platform specialized in learning difficulties where parents, therapists and schools come together to provide the best care and education for kids has announced successfully raising $150,000 from the Oman Investment Fund to boost its marketing and sales efforts as it plans to expand into the Saudi Arabian market.

This comes after a year since the startup secured $50,000 in Pre Seed from Oman Technology Fund in April 2021, having also successfully raised $65,000 in Pre Seed from Flat6Labs Tunisia in May 25, 2020. This funding has now taken Sghartoon’s total funds raised since its launch to $265,000.

According to Hidayet Ayadi, Sghaetoon’s founder and CEO, this activity is part of the startup’s bigger funding round with a total value of $500,000 that would be completed by February of next year.

Ayadi stressed that Sghartoon would use the funding to boost its marketing and sales efforts in the Saudi Arabian market. Saudi will be one of the startup’s primary markets beginning in the following year. In addition to Saudi Arabia, Sghartoon plans to expand its presence in the market of the United Arab Emirates.

Ayadi who is currently participating in the Gitex 2022 trade exhibition in Dubai, hinted, with regards to the startup’s future ambitions, that Sghartoon hopes to alter its business model by changing its attention to major corporations. As part of this new strategy, which is expected to be finished by the end of the year, the startup will concentrate on promoting its applications to businesses, which will then make them available to their employees.
