Smart Kiwi, a London, UK-based provider of a data intelligence platform for mobility companies, raised £250K in Pre Seed funding.

The round was led by SFC Capital, with participation from Plug & Play, and Startup Wise Guys.

The company intends to use the funds to grow the team and further develop their technology.

Founded by Angelo Delle Piane (CEO) and Murat Derya Ozen, Smart Kiwi is a data intelligence platform that creates demand predictive models for mobility companies. The models provide shared mobility companies that have fixed assets – i.e. bike, moped, car, with real time updates on how to most efficiently distribute its fleet to increase ridership and optimise their costs. Smart Kiwi uses non-traditional machine learning techniques and advanced geospatial models to combine historical fleet data with external factors such as traffic conditions, special events like concerts or football matches and near real-time human traffic in the city. Combined, this data allows the company to make predictions on where and how much demand there is likely to be at a given time in a given place.
