Today we announced that Zapnito has secured over £440,000 of new funding from Angel investors in a large seed round. The new funds will help Zapnito to accelerate further development of its core product as well as support the development of their new real-time knowledge sharing capability, as the company continues to pursue its vision of returning to the original purpose of the internet: collective intelligence through trusted sources of expertise.

Second time Angel investor, Steve Thompson, commenting on why he has reinvested in this round, said it was an easy decision:

“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. 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”.

Zapnito’s CEO and Co-Founder, Charles Thiede said:

“Their investment allows Zapnito to continue to invest in the development of its white-label expert knowledge platform, as well as a new real-time knowledge sharing capability we are calling Knowledge Feeds. 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. 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”.
