We couldn’t have found a more perfect investor to work with than Index Ventures. Since its inception in 1996, Index Ventures has backed visionary entrepreneurs who have taken on incumbents and built seminal companies including MySQL, Virata, Skype, Last.fm and Betfair. Its portfolio currently consists of more than 150 innovative companies based in 20 countries and 39 cities including Dropbox, Etsy, Funding Circle, King, Supercell, Criteo, Nasty Gal and SoundCloud.
With this investment, we have now raised a total of $1.14 million with participation from both existing and new investors including Rob Keve who, as CEO of Fizzback, grew the business from a one-man start-up to a multi-national business acquired by NICE Systems for $80M in 2011.
