Uzone.id – From several interesting learning options to support self-ability and skills, foreign languages are often the choice. This is what drives the LingoAce startup to provide a digital platform that can be a place for children to learn.
LingoAce was founded in 2017 by Hugh Yao in Singapore. Concurrently as CEO, Yao has a dream to present this learning platform in various countries, including Indonesia.
Yao then opened a branch in Beijing in 2018 and received funding from Decent Capital Angel Funding. It was only in 2020 that the LingoAce digital platform was present in Indonesia and targeted students aged 6-15 years.
