This Company is now in-revenue and returns to update us on its progress over the last 3 years. It designs, develops and markets new patented technologies in healthcare, sterilisation and medical devices. The Company has raised £4M to-date by way of grants and equity and has completed its first product launch into the UK cosmetic and aesthetic markets.They are currently in the process of raising a further £500K, of which £250K has already been committed, to bring their other products to market.
This Company commenced business as a smart phone app, connecting donors of unwanted goods to charities. Since going national in 2016, they have won various awards and have had over 22K donations via the app. With 10 of the top 20 retail charities as partners, who have around one-third of the UK’s 11K shops, they now seek funding to scale up the business and become the pre-eminent provider of goods donation services, by offering collection, logistics and e-commerce support to the retail charity industry.
Venue Booking Platforms
Arranging venues is usually very time consuming and expensive. Out of a universe of over 200K possible venues in the UK, only about 20% have a website to market their venue. The founders’ passion for providing these venues with a suitable platform has resulted in a seamless, self-service experience for anyone wishing to seek and book a venue for their event. After 12 months trading the Company now has over 15K venues live on the platform. The founders are now seeking £1M of funding, (70% already committed), to expand internationally.

Are there ID requirements or an age limit to enter these events?
Under the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 (as amended 2005) investors must "self-certify" by meeting simple criteria as "high net worth" or "sophisticated" investors. Therefore any investor should read and sign the documentation linked on our About page on our website, either a High Net a worth Investor Certificate or a Sophisticated Investor Certificate, as is appropriate.
We also wish to point out that companies or individuals seeking investment through the Dorset Business Angels must ensure that the information presented to potential investors is neither inaccurate or misleading. They are, accordingly, similarly advised to seek guidance from someone authorised under the Act.
