Chalkboard Education is an award winning mobile learning company that has already served over 1’000 students in Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire. In 2016, it was the winner of Seedstars Ghana and was selected as one of the best African start-ups at the prestigious Seedstars Global Conference.

Chalkboard Education, a Ghana-based mobile learning company, has closed EUR 200’000 in expansion financing from Jacobs Foundation. “Our mission is to democratize access to education and training in Africa,” said Adrien Bouillot, CEO and co-founder of Chalkboard Education.

Chalkboard Education will use the capital from the Jacobs Foundation to further expand its operations in Ghana and Cote d’Ivoire, including increasing access to its mobile learning tools for rural and remote populations.

“Education technology is a very important tool for accompanying the transformation of African educational systems,“ says Fabio Segura, Director of International Programs for the Jacobs Foundation. “We are excited to add Chalkboard Education to our group of partners dedicated to improving access to and the quality of education in Ivory Coast through the TRECC program.”
