We Got POP, the London-based FilmTech startup, has completed a fundraising round of £2m.

This latest raise was led by Octopus Ventures with participation from AllBright, Booking.com co-founder Andy Phillipps, and former KKR Partner Henrik Kraft.

We Got POP will use the fund to continue to develop its tech solutions and further expand across US geographical film and TV production markets.

The female-led business first launched an office in New York in July 2017, and the POP platform has already had trials on Showtime’s Billions, ABC’s Deception, CBS’ Bull and FX’s The Americans.

Kate McLaughlin, founder and CEO of We Got Pop, said: "We are delighted that we have the tremendous support of top tier fund Octopus Ventures and experience of angels like Andy Phillipps and Henrik Kraft, to back us as we add products to facilitate a wider community in the film industry and expand into the US.
