The number of Korean students wanting to study abroad, especially in the US, has been rising in the post-COVID world. Korean edutech startup Lettitu, which operates a platform ‘The Pond’ that helps students with US universities & college admissions, has seen a drastic rise in subscribers in the last three months.
Lettitu launched ‘The Pond’ web version on March 22 this year, and the number of student subscribers for the US admissions has exceeded 13,000. The Pond supports students by providing an optimal college admissions roadmap based on information such as student grades, desired majors, region and tuition level of selected universities in the United States.
Matching students with desired universities
The Pond’s personalized roadmap for US college admissions is provided by matching about 9,000 high school graduate college application data and 70,000 affiliate data with crucial information from 6,700 universities across the United States. In addition, based on the data provided by students, it is possible to objectively check whether or not they can go on to the desired university.
Lettitu CEO Dahoon Lee said, “We got13,000 student subscribers for the US within 90 days of launch with the web version alone. The number of subscribers is expected to exceed 50,000 by the end of this year. We are adding a discussion channel, and the mobile app is scheduled to be released in October.”
Letitu is an edutech startup dedicated to helping high school students plan their education and providing a full range of tools to help with everything related to university entrance, from time planning, essay guidance, customized curriculums, and discussion area, to college application advice and help.
The company was recently selected for startup support programs such as IBK Changgong Innovation Startup Company, CNT Tech Youth Entrepreneur Foundation Technology Guarantee Fund Social Venture Fostering Project, Gyeonggi Startup Hub Global Accelerating Program, and Born2Global Center Overseas Expansion Intensive Growth Camp.
