Appointedd Raises £595k Investment to Scale Globally

Edinburgh based startup Appointedd raises £595K in investment to scale globally.

The company’s multi-time zone booking tools, launched last year, helps small businesses manage their trade entirely online without pen and paper.

Appointedd’s new investment will boost its entry into new markets.

Investors, including Gareth Williams (founder of Skyscanner) and Marie Macklin CBE (founder of Macklin Enterprise Partnerships), are also showing interest in the £595K deal led by Equity Gap.

Last month, the company announced it had been selected as one of 12 integrated software systems in an innovative app platform curated by National Australia Bank.

The deal will see Appointedd’s software being offered to 700,000 SMEs across Australia.

Founder and CEO, Leah Hutcheon said: “It has been fantastic to get such a positive reaction from investors at this round. We have felt extremely honoured to attract investment from the founder of one of Scotland’s unicorn companies and experienced entrepreneurs like Marie Macklin CBE.

“We look forward to using their expertise to help expand our software globally. We are already seeing some amazing traction, and it’s exciting to be working with partners like National Australia Bank.

“We’re particularly looking forward to growing our team as we have another global player to be announced soon.”

Speaking on behalf of his co-investors Fraser Lusty, Director of Equity Gap, says: “We are delighted to continue to support Leah and the team at Appointedd through their next growth phase.

“We have particularly been impressed with the technical product enhancements and the strategic alliances formed which will open up volume markets in the USA, Europe and Australasia.”

Leah’s Appointedd start-up recently won the AccelerateHER pitching competition in March, held in Edinburgh by Investing Women, to support female entrepreneurs in accessing angel investments.
