How the fund has backed Family Traveller
Ardent Media Ltd is an independent media company based in Covent Garden, London. It was founded by Andrew Dent, an experienced media and marketing professional. The core proposition of the business is Family Traveller.
Family Traveller’s mission is to become the aggregator for all things to do with family and travel, providing inspirational, curated, trusted, insightful content and advice alongside the best deals and offers for their readers.
Family centric travel is a $140 billion global business and is growing faster than the travel industry as a whole. However, the majority of people still find researching and booking a family holiday a stressful and highly inefficient process. Family Traveller aims to make the process better.
The CoFund invested in Ardent Media in May 2015 alongside a syndicate of business angels combining investment and media experience and the Cass Entrepreneurship Fund.
Andrew Dent, Founder and CEO commented “The Angel Co Fund was an integral part of our growth funding round. They were clear in setting out their requirements to fund, were quick and efficient in the due diligence process and their investment committee process was very professional. Post funding they have remained a supportive investor who we feel we can turn to for advice and expertise at any time.”
