Lumikai leads Vobble’s $1M seed round to build a new audio-first interactive media platform for children

We’re thrilled to announce that we’ve led a $1M seed round in Vobble, an audio-first interactive media platform for kids aged 4-12, that leverages original stories, podcasts, news, and music.

The increase in screen time for kids has been a major pain point for today’s millennial parents. Having faced this issue firsthand, the founders of Vobble, Neha Sharma, and Sowmya Jagannath set on a mission to solve this problem, reimagining playtime for kids.

Both the founders have extensive experience as marketers and product specialists. Neha, Vobble's co-founder & CEO, brings two decades of global expertise, steering multiple brand categories as the Global Director at EssilorLuxottica. Her diverse leadership journey spans Unilever, DuPont, and PepsiCo, underscoring her experience in working with consumer-first brands. Meanwhile, Sowmya, Vobble’s co-founder & CPO, is a neuroscience graduate, with a specialized master's in Human Centered Design. Sowmya has worked with multiple startups as an operations lead on their 0 to 1 journey and is also a published children’s book author. Together, the founders’ unique blend of education and professional experiences have played a pivotal role in shaping Vobble’s creative and innovative pursuit.

Apart from original stories, the founders have been agile in onboarding partnerships with renowned publishers like HarperCollins, Hasbro, Scholastic, Rebel Girls, Tulika, and Amar Chitra Katha. From informative news and quiz-based podcasts to habit-forming songs, Vobble has built a content library spanning over 2200+ minutes, prioritising engaging, age-appropriate content delivered on a safe, child-centric platform.

We’re proud to partner with the Vobble team as they embark on a journey to build a global audio powerhouse from India.
