AlGooru, the online tutoring platform, has announced the acquisition of ChillLearn to expand its operations across the region.
Inspired by the ever-evolving tech world, AlGooru and ChillLearn have crossed paths to innovatively create solutions where they are required most, in the field of complementary education.
AlGooru, founded by Khalid Abou Kassem in 2019, has announced the acquisition of ChillLearn, the Jeddah-based tutoring platform founded by Muhanad AlJaser in 2020.
AlGooru has had its fair share of success stories, with the most recent being its acceptance into the seed accelerator, Techstars Riyadh, and closing the pre-Seed investment round with $600,000. As it has always been, AlGooru continues to spearhead the field of edtech to provide the absolute best for its users in Saudi Arabia and the GCC. To date, AlGooru recruits more than 450 vetted private tutors, covering more than 210 academic and non-academic teaching subjects.
ChillLearn served over 5,000 students. ChillLearn landed a win at the TechChampions Accelerator by the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Communications and Information Technology (MCIT). The Ed-tech platform scored another hit at the hackathon by Techstars and the Ministry of Education.
Speaking about ChillLearn’s approval to be acquired by AlGooru, Muhanad AlJaser, founder of ChillLearn, explains that AlGooru and ChillLearn have a common mission. Their combined enthusiasm and synergy can yield previously inconceivable solutions to the online student-tutor platforms.
As a result of this acquisition, ChillLearn’s team members, a network of tutors, and founder have become part of AlGooru. With unparalleled dedication and commitment, Khalid promises, “We plan to capitalize on ChillLearn's market insights, access to supply, and know-hows to better cater to the needs of the 10M student market in Saudi. This will anchor our foreseeable expansion in the region, which will align with our mission to build GCC's one-stop private tutoring shop.”
AlGooru’s mission is to easily match-make students and tutors, creating a community of dedicated professionals and enthusiastic learners to benefit from shared experiences.
