This article is brought to you as part of a new partnership between two of Africa's foremost news and information platforms for African tech startups, Techpoint Africa and Ventureburn

Egyptian edtech OTO Courses, which offers online English language courses to individuals and businesses, has raised a six-figure dollar investment.

Tech publication Menabytes reported last week in an article that the startup raised the bridge round from AUC Angels and Changelabs. The startup did not disclose the exact size of the investment.

OTO — which was founded in 2015 by Ahmed El Fadaly, Ahmed Badr and Tarek Nour — has previously raised a seed round from HIMangel and EdVentures in 2018, the publication said.

The startup recently launched DardshEnglish, a platform for booking one-to-one voice practice sessions with English speakers, the publication said.

It said OTO Courses claims to have delivered more than 350 000 online hours to over 15 000 learners and says it has over 150 instructors on its platform.
