Muscat InnoTech, an Omani start-up, is keen on reaching a much broader audience for InnoBox, an educational kit to help children learn the basics of electronics, through the forthcoming Global Educational Supplies and Solutions (GESS) exhibition and conference in Dubai, the largest show of its kind in the Middle East.
Eng Othman al Mandhari, Founder and CEO, says the SME initially began with 100 kits, but since the entry of a venture capital investor, have scaled up the operations with a view to expanding throughout the Gulf region this year.
“2019 is the year we start getting into other countries starting with the GCC countries.We believe that the edutech market is going to increase in the coming years and we are getting ready to give Middle East schools and students a product that will help them explore electronics in a safe, fun and practical way.” Al Mandhari also believes that because schools will continue to increase their investment in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to be more competitive, it will provide an impetus for growth for education suppliers. Close to 600 education suppliers and brands from all over the world are expected to showcase their latest products at the forthcoming GESS exhibition and conference in Dubai.(Oman Observer)
