Snappy Shopper, a Dundee, Scotland, UK-based platform that enables convenience stores and corner shops to sell online, raised a seven-figure seed funding round.
Backers included Kelvin Capital, Mercia, the Scottish Investment Bank and the management team.
The exact amount of the deal was not disclosed.
The company intends to use the funds to accelerate expansion throughout the UK and build its team with the creation of 21 jobs over the next year.
Led by Mike Callachan, Alan Reid, and Mark Steven, Snappy Shopper provides a platform that allows independent stores and smaller chains to sell online and deliver their products to consumers by offering promotions directly to their mobile phone while providing insights into their buying behaviour.
The platform is already in use by a number of stores.
