Social travel planning sites are officially so last year. In their place we now have taxi-related tech startups that promise to make cab hailing so much better.
London-based cab price comparison and booking startup Kabbee has raised $3.25 million in an intermediate funding round, led by Samos Investments, with “significant contributions” from Pentland Group and Redbus Group. Betfair Founder Ed Wray also invested, along with two angel investors who work at Smedvig Capital. Wray will now play an active role in advising Kabbee, along with Tim Levene from Augmentum Capital.
A “much larger” Series A investment will follow next year, according to Kabbee CEO Justin Peters. To date, he says the startup has raised around $4.5 million.
