Seedrs Presents: Event Roundup

Seedrs Presents: Event Roundup

28th April 2016 by Simon Hiscox

With nearly 200 in attendance, five amazing business pitches, plus insights from a seasoned VC, the inaugural Seedrs Presents of 2016 was a great success.

Hosted at the newly renovated Alphabeta building at Finsbury Square, in the Huckletree co-working space, investors and entrepreneurs had the opportunity to network and listen to VC turned entrepreneur, Dharmash Mistry, talk about his experience investing in growth-focused businesses, along with his transition from investor to entrepreneur. He shared his thoughts on what it takes to succeed in business, and how equity crowdfunding is helping him to do so.

We also heard great pitches from five very different businesses who are raising on Seedrs, with the audience asking great questions to the entrepreneurs.

Velorution – A premium cycling retailer looking to expand its stores across London and the South East.

Blow Ltd – Fast Beauty ‘On Demand’. Professional and affordable beauty services to your door or to ours.

West Berkshire Brewery – Independent brewery founded in 1995. Over 40 awards have been won, including Champion Strong Beer of Britain.

Football INDEX – The world’s first football stock market where you can trade top players with real money.

BeeLine – A handlebar-mounted smart compass that points you in the right direction on a bicycle. 3,000 people backed them on Kickstarter in 2015.
