London Business Angels cornerstones Night Zookeeper’s £260k angel round
London based, early stage children’s Edtech specialist, Night Zookeeper, has closed a £260k angel funding round which was cornerstoned by a £172k investment from a syndicate of 12 London Business Angels investors. The company, a graduate of Telefonica backed Wayra UK, is growing Night Zookeeper from a simple story into a children’s brand by using technology and storytelling to add value to creative play. The core products are digital games that give children the chance to see their drawings come to life. This new post seed round of funding will enable the company to develop more entertainment focused mobile applications and stories and grow a rich IP suite using internal design expertise.
Josh Davidson, Night Zookeeper Managing Director, comments, “Night Zookeeper is a business with huge potential. We have demonstrated our brands appeal and built award winning products. A large number of our investors are parents who recognise the problem that our platform solves and are passionate to see us succeed. As CEO, that is a fantastic position to be in.”
Anthony Clarke, London Business Angels CEO comments, “ I am delighted that a diverse syndicate of LBA investors has been able to participate in this early stage funding round and it is notable that one of our members is now taking an active role on the Board as a Lead Angel. His commercial experience and connections should prove invaluable to the company. We now look forward to the company scaling up the development of its range of educational products led by its CEO Josh and his team who are excellent examples of truly passionate and innovative entrepreneurs.”
