Disabled support app developer secures £300,000 investments.

Edinburgh tech business Neatebox has raised more than £180,000 from investors as it continues to capitalise on the market for its Welcome app, which gives businesses and venues advance notice of customers’ disability requirements.

Neatebox founder and chief executive Gavin Neate, a former Guide Dog mobility instructor originally created an app for use at pedestrian crossings before focusing on its potential to solve a fundamental customer service need.

He said: “There is a massive opportunity to scale up and roll out Welcome to the point where it is omnipresent and it is reassuring that our investors share our ambition to make this a reality.
