After finding a fully functional laptop discarded in a rubbish skip near their home, Bethany Koby and Daniel Hirschmann realized this was the spark they were looking for to create a new kind of technology education startup. The wife and husband team created ‘Technology Will Save Us’ (TWSU) in 2012 to put together hardware and software ‘making’ in a way that hadn’t been done before. The design-led company today announces the closing of its $1.8M financing round led by SaatchInvest, with participation from European seed-stage VC fund Backed and an (as yet unnamed) “substantial retail investor”. The funds will be used to expand the product range and build on existing retail partnerships such as the UK retail giant John Lewis, Urban Outfitters, The Conran Shop and the MoMA Design Store in New York.
