Zobi is a technology company that aims to secure smart devices in a home against any potential attacks by a fraudster or fraudulent entity. Zobi's first device and app, Hedgehog, aims to address this issue. Hedgehog can anonymously monitor the Wi-Fi of a user, detect and block suspicious activity or devices, and show a user the security loopholes and the means to plug them. Zobi claims that there are currently around 135 million connected homes and, by 2025, the spending per year on smart home devices is said to be $160 billion. It aims to be a major contender in the smart home security sector. The company won the European Product Design Award 2020 and secured $120,000 worth of grants from Amazon and Google for its cloud services. Zobi will use the investment to build partnerships and its business development team, expand its offerings to other regions, scale-up marketing and PR, and recruit a senior Chief Technology Officer (CTO).
