Beeducation Adventures Sdn. Bhd.22 Mar, 2018
Beeducation Adventures (BeED) is delighted to announce that we are the first company outside of Europe and the only one from Asia to be accepted into the renowned xEdu startup acceleration programme in Helsinki, Finland. Since our establishment in October 2015, it has been our aim to break all barriers to learning and to empower people through impactful education. This milestone takes us on the next step of our journey towards achieving these ambitions.
Finnish Education: the Gold Standard
Finland has routinely topped international rankings for education systems. It has become world-famous for placing utmost value on teaching as a respected profession, highlighting social equality, as well as emphasising playtime and experiential learning over structured lessons. Classroom learning takes up an average of 4 hours per day, while learners are given relatively little homework. Multiple-choice tests are close to non-existent, and learners face just a single high-stakes examination throughout their school years. Closer to home, these paradigms are also entrenched in the Malaysia Education Blueprint (MEB) 2013-2025, which aspires to better prepare our children for the needs of the 21st century.
Supporting Transformative Learning Solutions
We are proud to be joining an exclusive community of startups which has benefitted from being part of the xEdu portfolio - 37 edtech companies from 6 countries, selected from over 350 applications across 46 nations, since 2016. From product development to expansion, xEdu will offer us mentoring support from a cross-domain community of industry leaders, alongside research and development opportunities with public schools in Finland. As a member of the influential Global Accelerator Network, xEdu will also help drive our growth and market valuation, thus forming an esteemed stage for co-design.
As our cofounders embark on this 4-month journey, we thank you for your continued support and hope that you join us in sending them our best wishes!
