Lost My Name, a technology and storytelling start-up, has received €4m in an extension of a $9m Series A funding round from Project A, alongside existing investors Google Ventures, Greycroft and Allen & Co.

Lost My Name will use the finance to build out its infrastructure in preparation for a campaign of international growth.
Asi Sharabi, CEO and co-founder at Lost My Name, said: “Project A’s operational expertise and hands on approach will help us upskill our teams and set strong foundations for future growth. We’re thrilled to have them on board.”
Florian Heinemann, founding partner at Project A, added:
