Seedrs allows ambitious businesses in all sectors to raise capital and build community through an efficient, online process on All types of investors can invest as little or as much as they like (from £10) in businesses they believe in and share in their success.

Annik Rau started PONY Express Speakers after she kept feeling stuck with no confidence and fear of speaking up about her ideas because they might sound ‘silly’ to others. She has delivered training to hundreds of entrepreneurs, knowing how to make you fall in LOVE with pitching and speaking. Companies she worked with have received highly desired investment, been accepted on accelerator programmes, won pitching competitions and gone on to speak on TEDx stages.
