Three Southampton students managed to secure £50,000 for their app Cluttre.

The app Cluttr aims to help housemates manage their bills, chores and shopping list. It also includes an activity feed which keeps track of everything going on at home.

The aptly named start-up is a private social network founded by Southampton students Tundé Alao, Boateng Opoku-Yeoboah and Landon Vago-Hughes. Aloa is currently working at Google as a software engineering intern.

The trio secured the investment during a Dragon's Den event hosted by Future Worlds, an annual showcase of student enterprise culture at the University of Southampton.

During the event, six student startups pitched their inventions to a live audience and responded to questions from the audience. Cluttr received an unanimous support from all investors. The four business leaders ending up investing jointly £50,000. 

Cluttr includes features that track how much you are owed by housemates. It also includes notes on how to thoroughly clean bathrooms.

Alao predicts that their app will attract six million users across the world in 10 years' time.  

Future Worlds Director, Dr Reuben Wilcock, said:

"Two startups from the 2017 showcase are now valued at over £1m and will be based in Silicon Valley and London from this summer. Future Worlds will be mentoring Cluttr and the other startups as they continue their entrepreneurial journeys alongside their studies and strive to impact society with their innovations."
