Indonesia: Titik Pintar, a startup that aims to improve learning outcomes for Indonesian elementary school children via its online tools, announced today that it has closed an undisclosed sum in its first institutional investment from Indonesia Women Empowerment Fund (IWEF).
The financing will allow the edutech startup to continue on its growth path, improving its service for children, parents, and teachers. It also looks to grow its collection of interactive lessons and educational videos via its SahabatPintar.id website.
“With the support of IWEF, Titik Pintar is able to build even better products for elementary school children in Indonesia. We believe we can help kids have fun while learning,” said Robbert Deusing, CEO and Founder of Titik Pitar.
“We were very humbled to see the strong traction of Titik Pintar last year, we got a lot of good feedback from students, parents, and teachers. 2020 was difficult for everyone, and we worked hard to deliver fun educational content to Indonesian kids nationwide. We are confident to grow our user base in 2021 to 250,000 with the support of our strategic partners,” Deusing added.
Titik Pintar provides an ecosystem for edutainment. Tailored for every elementary school child in the archipelago, it offers gamified self-paced learning and remote micro lessons prepared by teachers, all aligned with the government curricula (Kurtilas).
