According to TechCrunch, the company also drew investment from Sonae IM, the investment branch of Portuguese telco and retail group Sonae; and Samos Investments.
UK investment syndicate Adjuvo also participated in the round, with notable contributions coming from Lance Batchelor, CEO of Saga and former MD of Amazon; Mothercare’s chairman Alan Parker; and Matt Cooper, chairman at Octopus Investments.
