Cardiff-based education technology company, Simply Do Ideas, has raised £550,000 through angel investors and the Development Bank of Wales. Capital Law advised on the funding.

Founded by Lee Sharma in 2015 to combat the frustrations that start-ups face in taking ideas through to execution, Simply Do Ideas helps individuals and companies to develop ideas. It plans to become the de facto choice for organisations looking for a simpler way to support early-stage innovation.

Sharma said, ‘We are now in a world where it’s crucial to have a creative and innovative mindset. Our technology is unlocking the entrepreneurial behaviours of individuals, organisations and communities by digitally bringing people together. So naturally, we wanted to work with an entrepreneurial legal team. Capital Law’s expert advice on raising this funding has been second to none.
