Tunisia's GoMyCode Expands Across Africa

Tunisia’s Edtech startup, GoMyCode has announced it has expanded its operations to Algeria, Morocco, Nigeria, Ivory Coast, and Egypt, as well as Bahrain and France.

The startup that began as a coding school in 2017, has since expanded its service to include a variety of technology and digital work training programs. GoMyCode offers training in web and app creation, artificial intelligence, data science, user interface, video game development, and business intelligence and has trained over 10,000 students and developed partnerships with over 100 private and public organizations, universities, and non-administrative organizations since its inception.

Note that the startup raised $850,000 in a pre-Series A round from Wamda Capital, Meninx Holding, Anava Seed Fund, and Jasminum Capital in 2020, and it’s now spreading to Algeria, France, Morocco, Egypt, Bahrain, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast.

Whilst speaking on the expansion Yahya Bouhlel, co-founder and CEO of GoMyCode said that the platform is built to ensure that Africans are engaged in a revolutionary learning model.

“We’ve tirelessly worked to ensure that the African youth can take advantage of our innovative and revolutionary learning model. Our hackerspaces are up and running in Lagos, Cairo, Manama, Algiers, Casablanca and Abidjan. We’re on a mission to provide everyone, from ages seven to 60, the opportunity to acquire the digital skills and tools to succeed in a rapidly changing digital world.

“We strive towards expanding throughout the whole African continent and the Middle East, and offering each individual our one-of-a-kind learning model. It’s a model that consists of on-site, guided learning, coupled with our online experience which is absolutely gamified and engaging” he said.
