pi-top raises $4m

Leading coding and robotics learning company, pi-top, has successfully closed a funding round that sees $4m of new investment into the company.

This substantial investment was raised following the recent appointment of their new Executive Chairman Stanley Buchesky, marking a new strategy for the company along with a revised organisational structure. 

pi-top’s future strategy includes: 

  • Successfully launching the pi-top [4] platform – From November pi-top will be shipping the new game-changing, programmable computing device, pi-top [4].  Combining physical computing and project-based learning educators, students, and inventors will be able to design, code and invent with pi-top [4] in one easy-to-use system.
  • Increasing investment in software development – Further, pi-top’s new SaaS-based learning platform, is designed to support project-based learning to teach computer science. It provides hands-on projects, mapped to learning standards with integrated assessment capability. Embedded coding windows directly power programmable devices like pi-top [4] and enables students to power and test the projects they build with the code that they write. This deeper level of learning equips students with real-world technology skills and prepares them for high growth careers.
  • Renewing our focus on core markets – In the coming year pi-top will be refocusing on our core markets, particularly in US education, to ensure that we continue to deliver market-leading products and services.
