Online learning company EduFocal last week celebrated its 11th anniversary to good vibes, much excitement and well wishes.

The company founded in 2012 has, since the last decade, witnessed significant growth, last year listing on the Junior Market of the Jamaica Stock Exchange and now positioning to tap new markets in the region.

At an event held on March 15, 2023 at Summit (formerly the Knutsford Court Hotel) in Kingston, the company's CEO Gordon Swaby entertained guests from the Ministry of Education, and other stakeholders, as they networked and enjoyed refreshments by the poolside.

Business Social was on location and shares with readers these highlights.
