Inkren, LLC closed its most recent round of financing. Proceeds of the financing will be used for improving and marketing the service which specializes in teaching Chinese and Japanese characters (called hanzi and kanji respectively) to learners worldwide.

Development efforts will focus on two areas. The first, adding functions that make characters easier to learn by giving additional context (one particular example is by breaking characters down into components to make it easier for learners to remember characters as arrangements of components). The second, will make Skritter accessible to more people in more places (details of which will be released later).

Marketing efforts will focus around the single word "characters" as the company's core value proposition is teaching characters. The marketing team's goal will be to significantly raise awareness of Skritter, particularly around the newer Japanese character (kanji) version which has had critical acclaim (most recently from the influential author of the Tofugu.com blog and TextFugu Japanese textbook).

The philosophy of Skritter’s development team is to release early and often, always making sure to keep adding value to the site’s users. The team releases updates multiple-times per week, describing them in the monthly newsletter. The site now boasts features to let you listen to sound clips of most Chinese words as you write them; reading, definition and tone study modes along with the original writing mode; a character clipping-API for other sites (like dictionary mdbg.net or podcast site ChinesePod) to add a study in Skritter button; and a detailed progress tracking system. The development team launches major new features in “alpha” mode first allowing users to opt-in if they want to be on the cutting edge. This gives the Skritter team feedback about the feature from technophile-users who like being about to give feedback about new and rough-around-the-edges features.

Skritter (skritter.com) will use part of the funding to continue its successful software development internship program. The program brings top computer science students from all over to the Cleveland Ohio area in order to help build and improve Skritter for the future.
