SkillLane, a Thai edtech startup has onboarded over 70 instructor and 18,000 students in less than 12 months since their launch in July 2014. In Southeast Asia, work-life balance is high priority, and SkillLane offers bite-size learning for users to adapt in daily social, work and personal life.
Titipong Pisitwuttinan and Ekachat Assavarujikul, started planning their EdTech company while studying MBA at the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University. “90% of people want to learn new things, to be better, have more income – but majority of them have full-time jobs and are too tired to go to night classes. On the weekends,they spend time with their families so there’s no way for them to learn new skills. SkillLane offers a promising alternative for such aspiring people.”, Titipong mentioned.
SkillLane works closely with instructors to develop these courses. They also collaborate with content providers in tailoring the courses for the Thai market.
Since their July 2014, SkillLane raised an undisclosed post-seed round led by Thailand’s Metaliq Growth Partners and has indefinite plans to expand into other Southeast Asian countries.
