In exciting milestone for our company, Shepper has raised £6million in our second round of funding, led again by Aviva Ventures.

Funds raised will support a multi sector scale-up in Shepper’s UK market, enabling further technology development to extend both the client offering and the network proposition, and activating Shepper’s ambition to become a global brand leader. Shepper has also announced the appointment of new CEO, Lindsay Forster, who will help accelerate the growth of the business fuelled by the funding.

“As a corporate venture fund, we want to invest in start-ups with growth potential, Shepper have created a highly scalable business with relevance across multiple industries. Shepper has a talented team, strong proposition and technology, and as existing investors we have enjoyed watching the business grow and are excited to increase our investment in this latest round of funding.”
