GoMyCode, a Tunisian EdTech startup, is opening a new Hackerspace in Bahrain right in the heart of Manama. The initiative is a part of the company’s ongoing expansion roadmap which includes opening modern tech education platforms across the region.
Launched in 2017 by co-founders Amine and Yahya Bouhlel, GoMyCode currently has more than 80 employees alongside a network of more than 100 trainers across the Hackerspaces operating in Tunisia, Egypt, Algeria, and now Bahrain.
Among other things, GoMyCode’s homegrown platform is dedicated to providing students and teachers with the best digital tools for training, skill management, content creation, and technical evaluation. All these aspects combine to make it extremely efficient to create custom training programs on a diverse range of skills, which in turn, offers greater flexibility to students.
Through its three years of operations, the startup has helped more than 4,000 students acquire new, innovative, marketable skills.
“We continue to deliver on our vision of providing high-level digital education with a unique learning experience that leaves lasting impressions and has a positive impact on people’s lives. We will invest massively in our technology, our team and strengthen our operations” announces Yahya Boulel, CEO of GoMyCode.
As for the decision to open a new Hackerspace in Bahrain, the company has stated that it was inspired by the Kingdom’s “compact and highly-connected ecosystem” that has so far proven to be a major hub for IT and IT-enabled services companies.
“Ranked the first in MENA for ICT readiness by the World Economic Forum, Bahrain offers the most competitive and affordable ICT services in the region,” GoMyCode noted.
