Sydney based mobile-only super fund Spaceship has raised $1.6m in seed funding led by Mike Cannon-Brookes. Spaceship is a mobile-only super fund that will invest in larger tech companies and startups, and will be launching a beta phase by the end of the year.
Investors in the early-stage tech company include Atlassian founder Mike Cannon-Brookes, early Salesforce investor Simon Clausen, Aconex founder Leigh Jasper, Upguard’s Mike Baukes and Alan Sharp-Paul and Vinomofo founder Andre Eikmeier. Sellen says the team was able to close the seed round in just a handful of days. “It all happened very fast – in about three days we had raised $1.6 million,” Sellen tells StartupSmart. “We’re really lucky to have an amazing group of investors. We’re so lucky to have so much great support from some really influential people in the community.” Founded by Andrew Sellen, Paul Bennetts, Kaushik Sen and Dave Kuhn, the startup will also be launching an AI-powered app that will allow users to closely monitor where their money is going.
