Investor Top Tips from LACEYS SOLICITORS
To start the evening, Victoria Boynes-Butler from our legal sponsor partners LACEYS SOLICITORS will share ideas on what to consider before investing and points for your investor documentation.
The Pitch Presentations
There will be four pitches plus a bonus presentation, running through the evening carefully selected by our Vice Chair Frank Guinn, head of the Screening Team to ensure a good selection for all investor appetites.
Market Sector:- Telecoms
This Company has developed and refined patented technology over the past 5 years that delivers up to 1GB broadband speeds down copper wires at a fraction of the cost of fibre. This will be the third time the Co has pitched to DBA and will probably be the final round before significant orders are received from major global suppliers of broadband services. More importantly, it is a final opportunity for members to pick the last few shares at a knockdown price. DBA members have already invested in previous rounds.
Market Sector:- Childcare
Founded less than 4 years ago, this Co has disrupted the Childcare market with a sensational new product that has been listed by many major retailers including Mothercare, John Lewis, JoJoMamanBebe and over 50 smaller independents. International orders are starting to scale up, with the major market being Asia, where their largest distributor has been signed up and is preparing for launch.
This third round is to provide funds to meet the demand from the Asian market, where orders have come in much sooner than expected.
Market Sector:- Surveillance technology - Drones
The Drone market is expanding rapidly with many variants now available that are customised to supply various markets with specific data. One drawback however is the limited flight time available to users to complete their survey and gather their data.This Company addresses this problem with a drone that can operate up to 120m and provide secure HD Video feeds and high-bandwidth data streaming for over 24 hours.
Market Sector: Entertainment - Music Industry
Formed in 2015, this Company has established a new model for developing and marketing artists and their music. They now have 10 artists under contract all of whom have released albums during the last 12 months. Their model has attracted some of the leading figures in the industry and they have secured second stage funding of £1M in April to scale up the business. Due to the rapid take-up of the April offer, their Board has agreed to accept a further £400K at the same valuation as the April round.
The Presentation Process
Each business presents, investors then ask questions, followed by a brief session without the presenters, when we discuss the opportunity to decide is there interest from any investors to look further into the opportunity.
