Aside from a record year for funding and number of deals, MENA-based education startups also attracted more investors than any previous year. As shown by the chart below, the majority of these investors came from the Middle East and North Africa, with just 14% of investors coming from abroad. This is lower than the MENA average, where 25% of all investors come from international markets. Hence, EdTech is still a regional game for many startups, with local investors – especially VCs and accelerators – warming up to the industry.
