Ashfords was instructed to advise on the investment round which will see Mush continue its strong plans for growth and development. Rory Suggett, Corporate Partner at Ashfords, advised Mush on the investment round, assisted by Ross Van De Velde, Associate,.


Rory Suggett commented: “Mush is an exciting and innovative app which has excelled since its inception in 2016 to become a widely recognised name and product amongst the parent tech community and mums. We are delighted to have advised Mush on this investment round and we look forward to seeing great things from them in the future as they continue to grow.”


Mush has been recognised in Apple's annual 'Best of 2017: Tech Trends' list for Parent Tech, The Pool's 'Women and Tech' campaign, and Wired magazine's hottest start-ups in London.


Katie Massie-Taylor commented: “Ashfords have gone above and beyond during the process. We have been delighted with their diligence, speed and communication throughout the deal from term sheet to close. We would highly recommend them to other companies.”
