Ambient Sound Investments (ASI), an investment fund of founding Estonian engineers of Skype, lead a seed investment into Kindo, a build-your-family-tree online company. The deal follows an incubation of the Kindo venture in SeedCamp of Saul Klein last fall.
The software development team is based in London. ASI did not disclose the investment amount but said that “it was a seed investment round, so not one of our larger investments.” The other investors include Saul and Robin Klein from The Accelerator Group and Stefan Gl?nzer, a former chairman of Last.fm and founder of Ricardo.
Kindo is available in Russian as well as in thirteen other languages. The deal was first reported on the Kindo blog.
