ASI joins a strong team of seed investors including Saul and Robin Klein of The Accelerator Group (TAG), and Stefan Glänzer, first investor in last.fm and executive chairman until the acquisition by CBS.

"I'm thrilled to have such an experienced group of investors to help with our international expansion, and the team behind ASI has a stellar track record in building global technology brands" says Nils Hammar co-founder of Kindo Network Ltd. Their website Kindo.com offers the next generation family tree, with new communication features, insightful stats and a family news feed in 14 languages including Russian, Arabic and Chinese.

The investment was led by Eileen Broch for ASI, who is impressed by what she has seen so far: "In the short time since they've been live, Kindo has proven that they know how to build a product that can be embraced by young and old alike. It is already loved by families around the world, which is what appealed to us the most."

Companies such as Facebook and LinkedIn have proven that social networks are useful tools to stay in touch with friends and colleagues. Kindo gives families the opportunity to benefit from the same emerging web technologies.
