PikMyKind, a Tampa, Florida-based platform that notifies parents about the pick-up process for their children in K-12 schools, closed $980k funding round.
Backers included FAN Investors Fund I and Florida Funders.
The company intends to use the funds for continued product development, marketing and customer acquisition and addition of several full-time employees.
Led by Pat Bhava, PikMyKid provides a mobile and web-based platform that simplifies the after-school dismissal and pick-up process by allowing parents to notify school administrators about changes in their child’s pickup times.
School administrators use the platform to manage pickup queues and notify parents when their child has been picked up, by whom, and by what method of travel.
The solution is currently deployed in more than 50 schools in 14 states.
