ELSA, a rising startup that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to help language learners improve their English pronunciation, has expanded to Thailand with a strategic business-to-business B2B partnership with SEAC, the region’s leading lifelong learning center for corporate training and capability development.

SEAC will introduce the “ELSA 3-in-1” English training solution to 770 top companies and 1,310 schools in Thailand, including 570 public schools and 740 private schools. Leading Thailand’s consulting and professional development business, SEAC’s list of longstanding clients includes approximately a hundred Fortune 500 companies.

“ELSA is eager to collaborate with SEAC to offer effective language learning solutions to individuals and SEAC’s corporate clients,” said Ms. Vu Van, Co-founder and CEO of ELSA. “This event represents an important landmark for ELSA on our path to becoming the best and most accessible pronunciation training tool for the more than 1.5 billion language learners around the world. We want to help them speak English confidently and fluently to unlock new opportunities in their lives.”

“Our partnership with ELSA is extremely important to both SEAC and the community we serve,” said Ms. Arinya Talerngsri, SEAC’s Managing Director. “For people to prosper they need to be lifelong learners and ELSA will facilitate this for those for whom English is not their first language. This empowers Thai and Southeast Asian people to reach their full potential by contributing and enjoying the benefits of a more interconnected world.”

After a successful Series A funding round with the participation of several Silicon Valley giants, led by Google’s AI-focused fund Gradient Ventures, ELSA is more than ready for its next big leap forward. The company is expanding globally and opening representative offices in some of the largest markets in the region, such as India (1.3 billion people), Indonesia (270 million people), and Japan (126 million people).

The “ELSA 3-in-1” English training solution for corporations allows employees to learn anytime, anywhere using the app, companies to track their learning progress in real-time from their organization’s dashboard, and management boards to co-design practical, specialized curricula relevant to their working context with the help of international language experts at ELSA.
