SoLeLands, an immersive game-based learning platform to support kids’ self-discovery, has announced that it has raised an undisclosed amount in a funding round led by East Ventures, with the participation of SMDV. The Singapore-based startup will utilize the fresh funds for product development and capacity building and prepare for the game’s soft launch in the fourth quarter of 2023.
Founded in 2022 by Jonathan Prathama and Adhi Paisoseputra, SoLeLands serves as the solution to ensure the right exposure and simulation to groom digital-native children. The platform focuses on two main objectives: discover kids’ passions and prepare kids for future challenges. To achieve those objectives, the edu games apply the game-first approach in supporting all parents and educators in preparing their children’s required skills and values. The company provides an enjoyable and meaningful learning experience that surpasses alternative ways children learn and spend their time.
SoLeLands also emphasizes the importance of children’s development across various areas like life skills, virtues, intelligence, and competencies. As much information might be new for the children, the firm presents learning content in easily digestible formats to ensure better understanding and easier absorption.
Speaking about the capital raised, Co-founder & CEO of SoLeLands, Jonathan Prathama, said:
We believe that the funding and support will enable us to provide the best platform to empower parents and educators to nurture children’s self-discovery and learn the required life skills and competencies. We are confident in seizing the potential ahead and contributing to society’s overall growth.
In addition, SoLeLands also offers a talent manager tool for parent-child collaboration, providing their parent’s visibility regarding the kids’ passion and talent. Thus, these insights will empower parents to guide their children’s development while still prioritizing children’s independence and safety, building their love for learning and equipping them with lifelong curiosity. It understands the importance of fostering the connection between games and real life to allow the application of knowledge.
Jordy Tenka, Investment Professional of East Ventures, added:
We believe that SoLeLands’ innovative approach and offering is the right and unprecedented solution because they don’t just focus on life skills and competence, but also on the long-term goal of building a love of learning. SoLeLands is here to empower Indonesia’s education world and ultimately contribute to a better learning process for the younger generation and society.
