Earlier this week I jumped on a call with Asi Sharabi (pictured third from left above), co-founder and CEO of London-based startup Lost My Name, the self-described “full-stack” publisher that makes personalised pictures books for kids.
The company’s backers include Forward Partners and mostly recently Google Ventures, who led a $9 million Series A round back in June.
In the interview (which over-ran somewhat!) we talked in-depth about how Lost My Name went from side project to a company with a multimillion dollar valuation, how the startup sold over 700,000 books in two years, and fund-raising with Google Ventures.
We also discussed Lost My Name’s latest product — The Incredible Intergalactic Journey Home — which claims to be the most technologically ambitious kids picture book ever!
