Bibcom receives £120,000 for child safety device
The company is backed to bring an innovative idea to market
Bibcom Ltd has received £120,000 of investment and has simultaneously become the first recipient of a new fund.
The company has been backed by the South Yorkshire Investment Seedcorn Fund which is backing companies to take new or innovative products to market.
The Sheffield-based company has produced a remote monitoring device, BiB Sense, which enables parents to check on their children using mobile technologies.
The software enables a phone to transmit live video footage of the child and its surroundings enabling the parent to view them in real time.
The product is also available as an extra electronic accessory that broadens the use of this technology in many other sectors, including sheltered homes and care centers.
Easa Taheri Oskouei, managing director of Bibcom, said that his experience as a father inspired him to produce the technology.
“As the father of a young child, I know how important it is for parents to check their children are OK when they’re apart,” he said.
“The £120,000 funding from South Yorkshire Investment Fund enabled me to put real marketing measures in place and launch the product with the kind of profile raising measures that would get it noticed, backed by a website through which the product can be purchased and downloaded.”
