Cognitive Corporate Finance is pleased to announce that we have advised our client Abwaab (https://abwaab.me), an Amman-based Ed Tech company to raise parts of the $5.1m Seed round recently announced.
Abwaab, founded in 2019, is an educational platform offering Arabic-speaking secondary school students in Jordan remote learning services to use at their own pace, with 50,000 video lessons created in-house from professional teachers to help accelerate students’ performance at school.
