Wild Blue makes new investment
Wild Blue Cohort, the West London-based network of private, ‘angel’ investors, today announces a new deal completed by its members.
Seenit is an online application and platform that helps brands direct, collect and curate video content sourced from smartphones. The business was founded in 2014 by Emily Forbes and Max Werner. Emily is a resident of West London and graduate of Chelsea College of Art. The firm has benefitted from support from BBC Worldwide Labs in North Kensington and the Collider B2Brand accelerator. Seenit’s clients include Unilever and Talk Talk, the mobile telephone operator based in Notting Dale.
“Kensington & Chelsea, Westminster and Hammersmith & Fulham are home to some of the most talented and entrepeneurial investors in the UK,” Wild Blue founder David Barrie says. “Our members want to invest close to home, in entrepreneurs with national and international prospects but whose success will reap rich rewards for the local area.”
“Wild Blue has the network to get start-ups in front of high calibre and relevant investors,” says Emily Forbes of Seenit, “and is also on hand to support you through the pitching process. Our Wild Blue investor has the skills and experience to enable us to accelerate and grow our business to the next level.”
Since it launched in March 2014, Wild Blue has evaluated over two hundred business opportunities, many sourced from members and deal flow partners. Seventeen companies have pitched formally at quarterly events and been promoted actively to the network. Three companies have received over £100, 000 in ‘angel’ investment.
