– Leap, a platform for people over 55 to learn via social interaction, has raised $3.1m in a seed round led by European early-stage investor Creandum and SF-based South Park Commons.
– Other investors include Learn Start/Learn Capital, alongside angels Michelle Kennedy (Peanut founder), Sahil Lavingia and Tim Tuttle.
– The company was founded by Swedish entrepreneur Caroline Ingeborn, former CEO of Toca Boca, a Swedish app development studio that builds learning apps for kids, and Vishal Kapur, former CTO and co-founder of Screenhero, which was acquired by Slack in 2015.
– The two founders met through South Park Commons, an intentional learning community that practices many of the concepts applied in Leap.
