Tomy Yunus, CEO & Co-Founder of Cakap, stated that EdTech Cakap's revenue in the second quarter showed a positive trend and was a cumulative success from the support of many parties. "Behind this achievement, I believe there is hard work from the Cakap internal team that has a rapid response to adapt in the post-pandemic situation, and one of them is through the launching of the blended learning solution. We believe Cakap's rapid growth is the driver to grow the number of people who are inspired to unleash their potential," said Tomy.
