Bethany Koby, Co-Founder, Technology Will Save Us

Technology Will Save Us is an outstanding example of London’s strengths in product design, education and technology. Their kits, which are all designed in-house, have been sold in 97 countries. This year, Technology Will Save Us was commissioned to design the BBC micro:bit, a miniature computer that will be donated to one million British children.

At the end of 2015, Technology Will Save Us completed a £1.2m seed round led by SaatchInvest, with participation from European seed-stage VC fund Backed and individual investors, to drive its international growth. They're currently using Kickstarter to launch their latest Mover Kit - an educational toy kids build themselves and then bring to life with active play.
