Funexpected: math made loveable

Thursday 24th November, 2022

Funexpected is changing the way children learn math. By immersing children in a digital environment, Funexpected’s thoughtfully designed curriculum empowers children to learn through play. Its recent investment round, led by Carina Fund with a follow on from Polynate Foundation, marks further growth for the UK-based startup.

Funexpected was founded by two mums and former maths classmates. In 2018, they left their careers to pursue their vision of enhancing children’s math abilities. On the app, children develop a mathematical mindset by playing engaging visual games.

Lead investor, Carina Fund, aims to build a better math talent system. Recognising that math is fundamental to science, engineering and computer science, Carina is addressing the inequality in the math talent system to create opportunities for everyone.

James Fleming and Fran Spooner advised Funexpected on the fundraise. Marriott Harrison is pleased to have worked with Funexpected on the fundraise, furthering the firm’s credentials working with future-shaping companies in the edtech space.

Congratulations to everyone involved in the deal!
