ABOUT

A thesis-driven, founder-focused studio

The ReimaginED Collective is a thesis-driven, founder-focused Venture Studio for seeding and scaling education technology ventures poised to create global educational impact, starting with the MENA region.

The studio is driven by three principles: first, that education technology (edtech) built by entrepreneurs who have a deep understanding of local conditions and context is best positioned to radically improve outcomes for learners in the MENA region; second, that the GCC member states’ push to build entrepreneurial ecosystems will be accelerated by a focused effort to nurture local entrepreneurial talent and networks focused specifically on edtech; and third, that success in addressing the first two principles will reduce the burden on ailing public systems by creating exciting and innovative ventures, in turn, making a dent in the youth unemployment crisis in the MENA region, the highest in the world at 27%.
