Voxy raises another $2.8 million – expands to Brazil

The 360° mobile learning solution Voxy just raised another $2.8 million from its current investor ff Asset Management joined by Seavest Inc., a private investment firm with a strategic focus on education and technology, Contour Ventures, and several angel investors. This brings the total funding raised so far to $4 million ($600k seed and $600k angel funding).

In April Voxy launched one of the first location based language learning apps which provides learners with useful vocabulary for places nearby like supermarkets, banks or restaurants.

The new funding will be used to make key hires, scale product development for new platforms and push into the rapidly growing Brazilian as well as other markets in the coming months.

Voxy has attracted more than 300k English learners and has been the number one education app in nine countries this year.
