Indonesian edtech startup Ruangguru has made the first step in its regional expansion by launching the Kien Guru education platform in Vietnam. Ruangguru says that Kien Guru already has a local team operating in the country and that Kien Guru has more than 2,000 video lectures and 15,000+ pieces of education content available to Vietnamese students.
Ruangguru said that it chose Vietnam as its first expansion market because its education sector in the country has similar problems to that of Indonesia, such as an uneven distribution of teachers, a large gap in educational facilities between large and small cities, and limited access to high-quality educational content.
