Kukua Series A: edutainment with purpose

Wednesday 16th November, 2022

We were pleased to advise existing client, Kukua, on its Series A fundraise. Volta Circle’s investment marks the completion of its Series A, which was led by Alchimia Investments and Tencent and included EchoVC, firstminute Capital and Auxxo Female Catalyst.

The Kukua platform leverages entertainment and technology to create unique learning experiences for children and families; all centered around a universe of proprietary characters.

Lucrezia Bisigani founded Kukua in 2018 and went on to create Super Sema – the first African superhero STEAM franchise for kids. First launched as an animated series with Youtube Originals and now expanding to toys, books, apparel and experiences.

Congratulations to Lucrezia, Giovanni and the whole Kukua team!

Fran Spooner led the Marriott Harrison team, which included Ben Cole, Lisle Gannon and Francesca Panayiotou.
