Kide Science raises EUR 750K to spur Asian growth
Finnish early childhood education company Kide Science has closed a funding round led by KSI Education and Europe’s leading seed edtech investor, Emerge Education.
The other institutional investors were impact-focused UK-based investor MPA Education, Italy’s Zanichelli Venture and Finland’s Reaktor Ventures. Also private investors participated in the funding round.
Equipping children with science process skills before school has been shown to result in better learning outcomes.
The investment from KSI Education is of strategic importance, with the London-headquartered international education financing company also having branches in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shenzhen, Shanghai and Singapore.
“We share the same vision and values for preparing young children’s scientific thinking, and Kide Science provides [an] excellent opportunity for students in their early years,” stated KSI Education, in a release. “We look forward to working with Kide Science closely over the coming years.”
