eCadets Ltd, a London, UK-based provider of online safety solutions for 3-18 year olds, secured £215k in seed funding.
The investment round was funded by ClearlySo’s network of high-net-worth individual investors, led by Simon Bragg, the chairman and chief executive of Stifel Europe. John Lloyd, an investor in eCadets, chief marketing officer of ClearlySo and fintech veteran, will join eCadets’s board as a non-executive director to represent the investor group.
The company will use the funds to expand access to their online safety training platform and extend the reach of Bubble, a safe social media platform they’ve created for children aged 6-12 years.
Founded by Henry Platten, eCadets provides a structured eSafety scheme which allows pupils to help their classmates with online safety through a rolling program of training for 3-18 year-olds.
There are more than 3,000 eCadet school licences across the UK and internationally (in South Africa, India, Singapore, South Korea, and Australia).
