OBM Education, a beacon in college guidance, career readiness, and future orientations for school students in Egypt, has announced a six-figure funding round led by Value Maker Studio (VMS). This cooperation is set to expand OBM’s presence in the Saudi educational industry significantly.
Omar El-Barbary and Ezz El-Din Farag founded OBM in 2020 to help pre-university students choose their college majors and offer them access to career advice and training programmes. The startup’s Taleb Super App has been a transformative tool for high school students across the MENA region, providing curated content, precision assessments, and premium services. The company aims to destroy the gap between the high school students and the 21st-century requirements. It works on building a new generation that keeps pace with times by connecting them with personal and professional development opportunities.
Speaking on the fundraising, CEO of OBM Education, Omar El-Barbary, said:
Investment is more than capital; it embodies shared visions and unyielding commitment. With VMS, we’re solidifying our resolve to enrich every student’s educational journey.
As part of the agreement, VMS’s upcoming “Bridge Programme,” which is set to open in January 2024, will provide extensive resources to companies such as OBM Education, including funding, technology services, legal counsel, financial management, and HR experience.
Adding about the investment, Dr. Ezz El-Din Farag, COO of OBM, said:
OBM’s essence lies in recognizing and nurturing the potential in every student. Partnering with VMS amplifies our mission, inspiring students to reach unparalleled heights.
Saudi Arabia emphasizes the transformative power of education in shaping a knowledge-centric economy in its Vision 2030. The Kingdom’s proactive approach to integrating technology and education has positioned it as a forerunner in the Middle East’s EdTech sector. The nation’s young, digitally fluent demographic and commitment to fortifying digital infrastructure offer an abundant landscape for pioneering educational solutions like the Taleb Super App.
Moataz Abou Onoq, Founder of VMS, commented: The Bridge Program epitomizes our dedication to nurturing startup expansion. Collaborating with OBM Education transcends business—it’s a convergence of our shared aspirations to elevate education.
OBM Education secured a six-figure investment from EdVentures in its second round of funding last August.
