MySkill, an education technology ( edutech ) startup with a focus on career preparation for young people, received initial funding from East Ventures. The value of this funding was not disclosed by East Ventures, which is a venture capital (VC) that is open to all sectors ( sector-agnostic ) in Indonesia and Southeast Asia.

According to a study by JP Morgan and Singapore Management University, it was found that one of the causes of the low number of qualified workers in Indonesia is the gap between academia and industry. The situation is exacerbated by the pandemic which has affected millions of workers in Indonesia.

“This funding will accelerate our mission to support job seekers in Indonesia to reach their dream careers.

MySkill comes with innovative solutions that ensure better learning outcomes, which will create a domino effect in generating better social and economic impact in Indonesia,” said Angga Fauzan, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of MySkill in a press release.

MySkill democratizes skills improvement and job search for more than 70 million young workers in Indonesia by providing solutions.

They combine three types of learning, namely independent, interactive, and private learning. “We believe that the combination can bring better results from the learning process,” he said.

Edutech was founded by Angga Fauzan, Co-Founder & Chief Executive Officer of MySkill and Erahmat, Co-Founder & Chief Business Officer of MySkill in mid-2021. The two co-founders are aware of the huge skills gap between the academic world and the skills needed in the world of work, which leads to many people having difficulty getting a decent job.
