Gojimo picks up a further $1.8m funding

Gojimo, the exam preparation app, has closed a round of $1.8m funding from investors Robin and Saul Klein (LoveFilm co-founder), Deborah Quazzo (GSV Advisors), the London Co-Investment Fund, CrowdBnk and Firestartr. 

Founded in 2013, Gojimo has been previously backed by London VC Index Ventures and JamJar Investments. It has raised a total of over $3m.  

“The two most popular ways to revise are still physical textbooks and past papers. We change that by delivering an extensive library of high quality assessment material to their mobile phone for free.” says George Burgess, who founded the startup after dropping out of Stanford.

More than 300,000 students have used the app in May alone (exam time in the UK) - 20% of all GCSE and A level students. The app contains more than 180,000 quiz questions for exams such as GCSE, A levels and the International Baccalaureate.
