Alcazar Capital is pleased to announce that it has acquired an additional equity stake in Creative Technology Solutions (“CTS”) through its dedicated investment vehicle Alcazar EdTech. CTS, an innovative EdTech player hailing from the UAE, is at the forefront of providing technology solutions from kindergarten to higher education, with the objective to improve teaching and learning outcomes. CTS has earned a distinguished reputation in the EdTech space and has become a stalwart partner for schools and universities in the GCC, particularly in light of the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Charbel Abou Jaoude, CEO of Alcazar Capital and Chairman of the Board of Directors for CTS, expressed enthusiasm about this partnership, stating that: “Our ongoing collaboration with CTS has deepened our conviction in the transformative prowess of technology within the education sphere. While the education sector has been slow to adapt to digitization compared to other sectors, the criticality of integrating technology both inside and outside the classrooms is now undeniable. CTS had an impressive growth trajectory to date, steered by a visionary leadership. We look forward to being part of the next chapter of CTS’s journey.”

Echoing this sentiment, Basem Chbaklo, CEO & Co-Founder of CTS, commented: “Our alliance with Alcazar underscores our commitment to building a future-proof, technology-led educational framework.  We are excited to further cement our partnership with Alcazar and to continue benefiting from their financial expertise, strategic insight and diverse network.
