Tickled Media, a Singapore-based online content and community platform for parents, has raised $8 million from LINE Corp, according to a recent filing submitted to Singapore’s Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority (Acra).

The firm, whose flagship brand is theAsianparent.com, had last raised $2 million from Siam Commercial Bank’s venture arm SCB10X in November 2020, which had pegged the firm’s valuation at $96.42 million, according to DealStreetAsia’s DATA VANTAGE platform. Since then, Tickled Media has issued ordinary shares to a series of newly-joined executives across strategy, business development, sales, and e-commerce.
