A TOOL for ‘listening’ to social media has attracted the interest of angel investors, along with an artificial intelligence app promoting mental and physical health.

The ideas were put to Dorset Business Angels (DBA) at their quarterly pitch event.

The real-time social listening platform was presented by a team which counts ITV, Twitter and the Premier League among its clients.

Our Pitch Events

There are four pitch events per year, in 2024 they will be held in February, May, September and November. Hosted at a Bournemouth hotel or virtually via Zoom.

At each pitch event, there will be 5 business presentation pitches of 10-15 minutes, to suit all investor appetites. These will be selected by the Dorset Business Angels directors nearer to the event. Short summaries will be posted to our Events page and distributed via our newsletter ahead of the event. Each pitch includes a Q&A session and is followed by an investor debate, held privately.

These pitches and our other social events are ideal opportunities for networking and learning about what is new and trending in a variety of industries. If you would like to be involved you can find out more on our Investors Membership page.
