Alef Education Growth Story

About Alef Education:
“When I was at school, learning was a cookie-cutter, one size fits all experience. We don’t have to teach like that anymore. AI is changing the shape of every sector for the better, so why not education too? At Alef Education, we aim to put more and better data into the hands of educators for a personalised and performance-driven approach to schooling.”

Started in Abu Dhabi in 2015, Alef Education is a global K-12 Education Technology company. The company has gone from strength-to-strength and now serves 50,000 students across almost 200 schools in the UAE, USA and Canada.

Geoffrey Alphonso, CEO of Alef Education, firmly believes being headquartered in Abu Dhabi has been fundamental to the company’s success. From the enabling regulatory environment and the opportunity to partner with the government, through to access to talent and the benefits offered by free zones like twofour54.

How is Abu Dhabi helping Alef Education grow:
“Abu Dhabi is a very stable place and there’s an appetite to think big and differently. Those are magic ingredients for any company. You also have access to resources, infrastructure and talent from all over the world – not a lot of people can say they work in a company with more than 40 different nationalities.”

“Moving our HQ to twofour54 in 2019, as our landlord and business partner, not only helped us secure the space we needed to grow but also delivered the support and know-how necessary to evolve as an operation. Tapping into their network of other tech companies, creative agencies and government offices has helped us to accelerate Alef Educations’ development and grow our workforce.”
