Disability app developer to scale with six-figure funding

An Edinburgh-based tech business has raised a six-figure sum from investors to drive development of its disability service app and expand its team.

Neatebox, whose Welcome app gives businesses and venues advance notice of customers’ disability requirements, has raised more than £180,000 , helping it capitalise on the “huge market” for its product.

Clients currently include Edinburgh Airport, Jenners, DoubleTree by Hilton, and Royal Bank of Scotland and NatWest, in addition to the Scottish Parliament site and NorthLink Ferries, both of which have recently rolled out the app.

A second tranche of funding is to follow later this year, boosting the overall cash injection to around £300,000.

Backers include business angel syndicate Equity Gap, Scottish Enterprise’s investment arm the Scottish Investment Bank (SIB) and a number of private investors.
