TechPitch 4.5 alumni Night Zookeeper to get £440k in funding
London based early stage children’s edtech specialist, Night Zookeeper, who won one of the early TechPitch 4.5 events in 2012 has closed a further investment of £90k, including an investment of £65k by the LBA Roundtable Syndicate Fund 2014, which takes the total amount raised by the company in recent months to over £440k.
The new post seed round of funding will enable the company to develop more entertainment focused mobile applications and stories and also grow a rich IP suite using internal design expertise.
“In this fast moving business environment, Moshi Monsters, Angry Birds and Temple Run have all redefined how children’s brands can be built. Small digital companies with innovative ideas can compete with much larger, established companies for children’s attention. I’m thrilled that we can work with LBA investors to grow Night Zookeeper and further our mission to turn children from simply the consumers of digital media into the creators,” says Josh Davidson, Night Zookeeper CEO.
Night Zookeeper is growing 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.
