Leap is an incredible technology conference that brings together innovators, industry leaders, and tech enthusiasts from around the world to share knowledge, network and learn from each other. Schoola was proud to be a part of this amazing event, which took place in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia from 6–9 February 2023.

During Leap 2023, Schoola participated in the Rocket Fuel Competition, which provided a platform for startups to pitch their business ideas. We were thrilled to make it to the finals alongside 11 other startups, out of a total of 90 that pitched in the semi-finals. While we did not win our category, the recognition we received as a runner-up has opened doors to potential partnerships and investments from industry players.

In addition to the competition, we had the privilege of connecting with a diverse range of people, including investors, entrepreneurs, and government officials. We were particularly thrilled to meet the Secretary General DCO, H.E Deemah Yahya, who promised to link us with a viable investor.

Beyond the networking opportunities, Leap 2023 was an amazing learning experience for Schoola. We are grateful for the opportunity to connect with industry leaders, potential investors, and like-minded innovators. We look forward to continuing our journey of empowering the next generation of learners through our innovative EdTech solutions.
