SOFTWARE start-up Gecko-
Labs, which helps universities and colleges recruit more students, is poised to open an office in London, creating ten jobs, after receiving a £250,000 cash injection.

The investment, which will also help the Edinburgh firm extend its product range and develop new tools for its customers, was led by venture capital firm AngelLab via its partner Andrew Weisz, who will join the GeckoLabs board, with further funding from the London Co-Investment Fund.

GeckoLabs was founded in 2012 by Matthew Lanham, using cloud-based software to help educational institutions manage and improve their rec­ruitment processes. Clients include Aberdeen’s Robert Gordon University, Edinburgh Napier University and Glasgow Caledonian University.

Lanham said it was an “incredibly exciting” time for the business, adding: “The incoming investment will help us take the business to the next level, particularly with our ambitions to grow overseas.”

The firm is also hoping to expand into the US and Asia.
