GoMyCode began as a coding school in 2017, but has since expanded to include a variety of technology and digital work training programmes. The company offers training in web and app creation, artificial intelligence, data science, user interface, video game development, and business intelligence through a hybrid model that combines offline and online learning.
GoMyCode first opened its doors in a co-working space in Tunis before spreading to Sousse, Sfax, Nabeul, El Menzah V, Beja, Gafsa, and Gabes. So far, it has trained over 10,000 students and developed partnerships with over 100 private and public organisations, universities, and non-administrative organisations.
It raised $850,000 in a pre-Series A round from Wamda Capital, Meninx Holding, Anava Seed Fund, and Jasminum Capital late last year, and it’s now spreading to Algeria, France, Morocco, Egypt, Bahrain, Nigeria, and the Ivory Coast.
Whilst speaking on the expansion Yahya Bouhlel, co-founder and CEO of GoMyCode said“We’ve tirelessly worked to ensure that the African youth can take advantage of our innovative and revolutionary learning model. Our hackerspaces are up and running in Lagos, Cairo, Manama, Algiers, Casablanca and Abidjan. We’re on a mission to provide everyone, from ages seven to 60, the opportunity to acquire the digital skills and tools to succeed in a rapidly changing digital world”.
He added “We strive towards expanding throughout the whole African continent and the Middle East, and offering each individual our one-of-a-kind learning model. It’s a model that consists of on-site, guided learning, coupled with our online experience which is absolutely gamified and engaging”
