What a week it’s been here at Crowdfinders HQ! Not only did we host another electrifying Crowdfinders Live pitch event on Tuesday night but we have also welcomed four amazing new businesses onto our pre-crowd investment platform.
Over 100 investors were in attendance at London’s Hippodrome to hear the gripping pitches delivered by our four promising scale up SMEs looking for growth funding.
First up was ScreenLimit – a ground breaking new tool that enables parents to remotely monitor and control their children’s smartphone, tablet, or computer screentime. Parents can instantly or permanently block certain apps, schedule times to deactivate devices, reward good behaviour, and message their children, even with the sound of their most stern voice. ScreenLimit is available on iOS, Android, Amazon, and Windows devices with plans to expand the software onto major games consoles, Mac OS, Chromebook and Linux. Take a look at ScreenLimit’s presentation here.
Next up was FUBAR Radio – a disruptive digital media brand engaging impressively with the notoriously hard to reach ‘millennial’ demographic. FUBAR connects sponsored entertainment content with young adults through live radio, podcasts, video, and social media content on its own website and via Facebook, iTunes, Twitter, and YouTube. Since launching in 2014, FUBAR Radio has built a monthly audience of over 2 million adults. Watch FUBAR’s presentation here.
After a short break for some typically off-the-wall entertainment came the third pitch from sense – an innovative food supplement brand consisting of five lifestyle related products that cater for consumers who like to indulge every once in a while. Sold online, by health food and pharmacy retailers, Amazon, and through the sense website, each products has been designed by a professional nutritionist to assist smokers, drinkers, weight-watchers, and city dwellers with the high stress levels they face. Get a sense of the company’s products here.
Last up was the impressive 365 Talent Portal – An online global community and career hub for Microsoft enterprise technology consultants and the companies looking to hire new talent. Unlike traditional recruiters, 365 Talent Portal is radically changing how consultants look for jobs, as the platform nurtures the soft skills of each candidate and trains them in order to improve their employability. 365 Talent Portal is making great progress on our platform; take a look here.
