Gorilla Capital has announced a strategic investment in BeiZ Oy, the developer of Lola Panda educational games for children. With over 40 million downloads in ten language areas, Lola Panda games help children learn to read, count, and solve problems in an engaging way. This investment will support the development of Lola World, a new learning app aimed at expanding the reach of Lola Panda’s innovative learning model. BeiZ Oy, based in Tampere, Finland, is dedicated to making learning a fun and rewarding adventure for children worldwide.

BeiZ Oy, a game studio based in Tampere, Finland, has gained international acclaim for its educational apps designed for children. One of its most popular creations is the Lola Panda series, which has been downloaded over 40 million times in 12 different languages. The studio’s mission is to make learning enjoyable and rewarding for children, and its apps are designed to help children learn to read, count, and develop logical thinking skills through engaging gameplay. BeiZ Oy’s commitment to creating high-quality educational content has made it a respected name in the field of educational gaming.

“Learning to read is a challenge, even in countries with a high level of education. For example, in the United States, only 32% of fourth-grade children can read well. The learning model of Lola Panda applications has been adapted to suit different language areas based on learnings from previous Lola Panda applications. Lola Panda’s reading apps have been available in ten languages ​​for years, so the company has been able to develop a solution to this big, global problem,” says founder Mika Heikinheimo.


“Knowing how to read is one of the most important skills that everyone should acquire at some point. The market is growing at a fast pace, but even in several large markets there is a lack of professional reading learning applications. Lola World learning application is in the early stages of the development path, but it is already one of the best solutions and it has already helped thousands of children to read. Now the company must deliver on its promise and offer even larger language areas the most fun way to learn to read,” says Risto Rautakorpi, Founding Partner, Gorilla Capital.
