About Us

WHAT IS EDUCATION 4.0?

Education 4.0 (Ed4.0) is an education innovation social enterprise that leverages technology to empower youth and prepare them for the fourth industrial revolution.

We create innovative differentiated curricula and edtech solutions to develop cognitive skills, creativity, and design and systems thinking of youth with no access to quality education in Africa and the Middle-East.

As a mean to finance our social impact projects, we deliver advisory services and edtech solutions to governments, NGOs, corporations and private equity firms on the themes of program development, social & economic infrastructure reforms, education innovation, and education transaction.

We are committed to break free from traditional high fixed cost models of education, provide access to quality education to every student in need in Africa and the Middle-East, and empower youth to unlock economic prosperity and social justice in their communities and beyond.
