Zipabout secures its largest private investment to date

This latest funding round has come from Midlands Engine Investment Fund (MEIF) and Founders Factory, supported by our partner Kx (the technology division of First Derivatives plc).

As well as generating new jobs and supporting our expansion into Europe, the funding will support the deployment of our Passenger Connect product, which is used by some of the biggest names in transport including National Rail, LNER and ScotRail. And to top it all off, we have set a new HQ in Birmingham, one of the fastest growing tech hubs in the UK.

Our founder and CPO Alex Froom, said: “We know that Passenger Connect addresses a global need by transport operators to deliver real-time personalised travel information. Zipabout has been focused on the rail sector, however this new round of investment will support our ambition of delivering the product across all modes of transport including land, air and sea.”
