FinTech startup Urban Jungle has closed a £1m Seed.

Williams spoke about the round’s closure: "This investment marks a big step towards our mission to build an insurance provider that customers love. Through 2017, we focused on building a business that our customers can rely on 100% when something goes wrong.
