Quipper, a London, UK-based e-learning start-up, has raised £2.3m (approximately $3.6m) in Series A funding.
The round was led by Globis with participation from Atomico and Benesse.
The company intends to use the funding to increase the amount of content available to users, to expand its reach as the educational tool.
Founded in 2010 and led by Masa Watanabe, a co-founder of Japanese mobile social gaming company DeNA, Quipper provides an Apple and Android app that allows users to answer a series of questions, creating a powerful iterative learning process. People can also use it as a platform to create their own quiz programmes, making the app valuable for teachers and other educators, and encouraging the growth of a valuable body of educational content.
Quipper’s quizzes currently cover more than 2,000 topics, from maths to healthcare, and languages ranging from Dutch to Turkish.
