Digi.me, a Tongham, UK-based personal data access platform, secured £4.2m ($6.1m) in Series A funding.
The round was led by global re-insurer Swiss Re.
The company, which has now raised £7.1m ($10.2m) since launching in 2009, intends to use the funds to accelerate the development and launch of its platform.
Led by founder and chairman Julian Ranger Executive Vice President North America and Jim Pasquale, Digi.me is advancing a permissioned access platform, which will let users bring together data such as health and financial information and share it – if they wish – with businesses in exchange for personalized services or reward.
The app, which is now available on PC, Mac, iOS and Android, and already has over 400,000 users in 140 countries, features universal search across all platforms, daily flashbacks, the ability to create custom collections of content, data export, etc. Soon, it will be possible to add financial and health information with other personal data streams to be added in the future.
Digi.me has signed partnerships with Toshiba, Lenovo and Evernote.
