Abwaab, the Jordanian-born smart online learning platform, today announces its acquisition of Edmatrix, a Pakistani-based social e-learning platform founded in 2020 by ex-Uber executive Raja Ahmed Shuja. This marks the startup’s first move into the wider Asian market, after having recently announced the ramping of its operations in Egypt.
“Our mission to provide the highest-quality education and make it accessible and affordable to each and every student regardless of socioeconomic background aligns perfectly with Edmatrix’s. We’re proud to have them onboard as we embark on a journey to change the way students learn in our part of the world”, said Sabri Hakim, Co-founder & COO, Abwaab.
“Our team is passionate about creating impact in Pakistan, and joining forces with the Abwaab team will enable us to unlock massive potential,” commented Edmatrix’s Raja Ahmed Shuja on the deal.
The acquisition, for an undisclosed amount, means that Abwaab will start operating immediately in Pakistan, the world’s 5th most populous country with 50M+ students, and strong demand for high-quality, affordable education.
