Coded, a Kuwait-based coding academy has raised $1.3 million Pre-Series A, the startup told MENAbytes earlier this week. The round was led by Kuwait’s KISP Ventures, and joined by different other Kuwaiti investors including Sijam Ventures, Sirdab Lab, and Sharq Capital. 500 Startups and Abdullah Al-Zabin, an angel investor also participated in the round. Coded was part of 500’s MENA Dojo’s third cohort that graduated earlier this year. The Kuwaiti startup had raised its first investment in an undisclosed round in March 2017. Founded in 2015 by Ahmad Marafi and Hashim Behbehani, Coded teaches people to code through their offline bootcamps and recently launched online platform Barmej that features different courses in Arabic. The startup since launching, according to its website, has organized over 20 bootcamps, graduating more than 200 coders.

Coded’s online platform Barmej features both free courses and extensive six-month long online bootcamps (think Udacity’s Nanodegrees) that cost $350 per month. There are currently eight free courses (tracks) available on Barmej that can be accessed by anyone by creating an account on the platform. The courses are divided into different lessons in the form of (Arabic) videos and the users are supposed to take quick MCQ-based tests after they finish a lesson. The platform also has an online community where participants can ask questions and talk to each other, and a leaderboard to show the top-scoring participants from all the courses.
