It was the April of 2018 when we first mentioned Gmply; the new generation e-learning platform for corporate institutions. Founded in 2017 by Gokcen Karan, Kalde Ernart and Giray Kefeli, video learning platform GmPly received a fresh investment.
Information was shared that Buba Campus invested on the interactive video e-learning platform GmPly with a valuation of $ 1 million. Note that GmPly and Buba Campus held an online meeting and signed the contract remotely due to the coronavirus pandemic which obliges us to stay at our homes.
Starting off as an İTU Çekirdek initiative, GmPly previously received an investment of 165 thousand TL from Cengiz Ozkose, and a total of 400 thousand TL seed investment from İTÜ ARI Teknokent and Elginkan Foundation. Note that major brands such as Socar, Tavuk Dünyası, Philip Morris, Anadolu Efes, Boyner, Denizbank, Vodafone, AXA Insurance, Evyap, Anadolu Sigorta, Atasun Optik, Gap İnşaat, Arzum Home Appliances, British American Tobacco, American College, Siemens, Sushico, Maxion and T-Bank are among GmPly's customers.
BUBA Campus Co-founders Timucin Bilgor and Nuri Murat Avci stated that the network and investment funds owned by BUBA will allow GmPly to reach a broader customer group and significantly contribute to its expansion overseas.
Declaring to have been collaborating with Buba Campus for a long time and to have finally transformed this relationship to a partnership, GmPly's CEO Gokçen Karan expressed that -with the support of Buba Campus- GmPly aimed at firstly expanding to Europe and then to the US after the pandemic; and that they would promptly get ready for second round investment preparations.
