Funds were also provided from the Eureka EIS portfolio service and the partners of Octopus Ventures.

Semafone will use the funds to ‘accelerate [its] growth in the UK and abroad through investment in sales and marketing’, according to Octopus.

The company’s software allows customers to input credit card details, such as the card number and the three-digit security code, using the phone keypad.

Founded last year, London-based Semafone has clients including the John Lewis Partnership, Argos and Specsavers.
