Kinobi Nets US $1 Million Seed Funding To Support GenZ Career Development in Asia

By Jamille Tran

Singapore-based college-to-career platform Kinobi today announced a US$1 million in seed financing led by an undisclosed corporate venture capital firm in Indonesia.

Several family offices and angels in the region also joined.

The funding will be used to support Kinobi’s reach to university partners across Singapore, Indonesia, the Philippines and Thailand.

“we’re merely scratching the surface in Jakarta and manila. The hunger from students to succeed drives me every day to build a product so good that it helps them succeed better,” said Benjamin Wong, co-founder and CEO of Kinobi.

Launched in 2021, Kinobi aims to bridge the “last-mile” education for Gen Z youths, helping them through the transition from finishing formal education to beginning a career.
