Lifted, a London, UK-based social care startup, raised £1.5m in seed funding.
The company is coming out from Zero 1, a venture builder that partners with FTSE 100 corporations to build and co-invest in new businesses to tackle the world’s biggest problems.
The company intends to use the funds to support R&D.
Led by Rachael Crook, Lifted has built an online care management platform to connect families, carers, and staff to improve the quality of care. The platform offers tools to schedule visits, keep a check on tasks that have been completed and receive notifications when care begins and ends.
The company is developing AI-based analytics to predict and prevent health problems, also plans to broaden their service offering by combining professional care and in-home technology. This will bring together health alerts, in home sensors, and professional carers.
Founded in 2018 by Finn MacCabe, Damian Cristian and Guy Conway, Zero 1 has already built three new companies in Insurance, Cloud Compute and Health Care, in partnership with FTSE 100 companies, and one in energy, Heata.
