amicable is delighted to announce that we have successfully secured £472,260 from a remarkable group of angel investors. Since launching to customers in January 2017, we have been amazed by the number of couples who want to separate on amicable terms.
amicable will be using the investment to build the amicable platform. The amicable platform will enable us to help more couples, by using clever technology that reduces any unnecessary admin and allows our Divorce Coaches to support couples on the emotional journey.
Our co-founder Pip Wilson said: “Our vision is to change the way the world divorces and to provide a lawyer-free solution that helps customers through the emotional journey of separation and family breakdown.
“We are delighted to have closed our second funding round with an inspiring group of angel investors who understand the social purpose of amicable and who can help us drive the business to the next level. With the addition of QVentures’ impressive network, we were able to close the round quicker and get back to focusing on the business.
“Having already helped hundreds of couples through their divorce we are excited to be able to expand the business further and to continue to make a difference in fixing the broken divorce model.”
Robert Walsh, managing partner of QVentures, which helped connect amicable with a wide range of angel investors, said: “amicable was a really exciting proposition for our investors, who were keen to fund an innovative and tech-driven solution for a genuine social problem. Family breakdown affects over 200,000 people in the UK every year, and amicable offers a smart and communication-focused way for couples to achieve more positive outcomes.”
amicable exists to help separating couples achieve better outcomes for their families. Too many families emerge from divorce damaged and scarred. amicable can’t prevent divorce but thinks it is a sad event, not a bad event, with the focus being on people being able to move on successfully with their lives.
