Polling platform doopoll raises investment

Cardiff-based tech start-up Doopoll is celebrating after raising investment from Finance Wales and investor Konrad Litwin, bringing its valuation to £1 million.

Launched in 2015, Doopoll is an online platform where you can create polls and receive responses in real-time. It’s aimed at enabling effective decision making.

The company was named tech start-up of the year at the ESTNet Awards 2016 in March and has been accepted onto tech accelerator IdeasFund.

Organisations such as the National Museum of Wales and Swansea University’s School of Management are already using the service to gather quick, honest feedback.

Co-founder Steve Dimmick said: “After a lot of hard work over the last year, this investment allows Doopoll to accelerate our growth. We’re thrilled to be partnering with Finance Wales and Konrad.

“It’s a fantastic milestone for us, building on our achievements to date and giving us a platform for future success. We will now be building a global team and working with great international brands, both in and outside of Wales, to improve the process behind the decisions that drive their businesses.”
