Knowledge sharing platform Zapnito closes £442,000 Seed round


Zapnito, an expertise sharing platform, has closed a £442,000 Seed round.

Individual investors participated in the round, including Angels from Boston Consulting Group and Summit Partners.

Steve Thompson, second time Angel investor, commented: “Within Zapnito’s first three years, it has already successfully achieved many significant milestones, most notably securing an impressive client portfolio, including influential industry heavyweights such as: Springer Nature, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, Informa Business Intelligence, and Future Science Group, proving the platform has both real world applicability and is delivering demonstrable value to customers.”

Based in London, the firm’s platform enables organisations to share, promote and monetise collective expertise.

“Zapnito is also benefiting from a tremendous amount of goodwill and guidance from a suite of top notch external advisors, who are working hard to ensure the business matures into a sustainable and profitable venture,” Thompson added.

Zapnito says it will use the funds to accelerate the development of both its core product and its new real-time knowledge sharing capability.

“As we expand our global reach and focus on attracting more trusted brands as our clients, we look forward to realising our vision of returning the internet to its original purpose: collective intelligence through trusted sources of expertise,” said Charles Thiede, co-founder and CEO of Zapnito.

“Our Angels, global network of advisors, experienced team and especially our customers are huge assets for us and we are very proud to have come this far this fast,” he concluded.
