SeedBlink lists Kinderpedia in a round led by ROCA X meant to accelerate the transformation of education in Romania and in Europe

Kinderpedia is a complete communication and management solution dedicated to schools and kindergartens, based on permanent collaboration and real-time communication between teachers, students and parents. The whole activity is centralized, so it reduces the administrative time of teachers by over 40%, improves parental involvement, through a secure and easy to use interface and offers school principals a complete perspective on all activities and communication in the institution.

Kinderpedia brings together, on the same digital platform, all the administrative tools necessary for the proper organisation of school activity. From check-in with QR code to take students’ attendance, or instant access to the daily schedule and gradebook, to remote video teaching, homework module and quick messaging, Kinderpedia provides the digital infrastructure required to transform the education system in Romania, as well as in Europe. In addition, the platform includes functions of automatic invoicing, financial management and online payment of school tuition fees, by integration with electronic payment systems.

Within the current round, for €400,000, the company offers 15.4% of the capital. SeedBlink, the largest regional equity crowdfunding platform dedicated to innovative start-ups, lists Kinderpedia for €200,000 funding, in a round led by ROCA X, which has already committed €200,000. A project for disruptive businesses at the beginning of the road, ROCA X relies on the relevance of eduTech solutions in the context of the recent period and sees in Kinderpedia the chance for Romanian education to increase its efficiency and assimilate the digital tools that new generations learn and use intuitively.

“This funding round is a valuable opportunity to take the transformation we started in education five years ago one step forward. The funds will be allocated mainly to accelerate marketing and sales in Romania, UK, Portugal and Switzerland. The agreement with Roca X and the listing on SeedBlink represent a chance to attract new partners with similar values. Together, we aim to make the transition to a connected education and support children's development in the early years of school.”
Daniel Rogoz, CEO and Co-founder of Kinderpedia
