Encouraging further development of the African tech scene, the online software outsourcing Marketplace company Gebeya have secured a $2 Million dollar seed round investment co-led by Partech and Orange Digital Ventures and followed by Consonance Investment Managers.

Gebeya, headquartered in Ethiopia, is a Pan African Ed Tech company which focuses on encouraging the next generation of African youth, preparing them for the demands of the global market. The investment that they have secured will go towards strengthening their mission to support those aiming to enter the tech world, by scaling up its training and marketplace services in Francophone Africa as well as launching their online African talent marketplaces.

The investment follows a previous funding round in which Gebeya secured $500 000 from the International Finance Corporation in 2019 to support their efforts in balancing the gender gap in the African tech sphere. Through the Digital Gender Ethiopia program, Gebeya vowed to train a total of 250 aspiring female software engineers in Back-End/Front-End Engineering, Business Analysis, DevOps, Mobile Application and UX/UI Engineering. The evident dedication to the African tech scene is the attitude that is necessary in a world in which start-ups, in particular those regarding technology, are becoming increasingly significant in shifting entire economies.
