Investor Coffee Morning with Spark Up and Seed Legals
January 18 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm GMT
Join us for an informal chat over coffee and cake where we will be welcoming Samy Gutman from SparkUp and Anthony Rose from SeedLegals.
SparkUp facilitates communication between start-ups or small businesses, and their own networks of prospective investors. By using SparkUp’s online platform, entrepreneurs can maximise their fundraising potential, and showcase their business and track their campaign progress.
SparkUp’s team of advisors helps clients throughout the entirety of the fundraising process by providing valuable insights and best practice advice on investor materials, setting up all campaign details in SparkUp and by answering any queries that come up during the campaign.
Ultimately, SparkUp’s system allows entrepreneurs to be as efficient as possible, by minimising the time spent on getting conversations started, and maximising time spent connecting with interested contacts and managing investor relations.
Thanks to its methodology, team, and software, SparkUp has helped 72 entrepreneurs raise a total of £30M in the United Kingdom, France, and Norway.
Samy Gutman is one of SparkUp’s founding members. After Studying History and Economics at Maastricht University, Samy worked as a consultant for AXA Belgium. In 2015, he moved to Paris to work for SparkUp with Jeremy, Manon, and Florian. By the end of 2016 Samy opened SparkUp’s London office. Since 2016 SparkUp UK has helped over 100 entrepreneurs raise capital.
SeedLegals is a new funding automation platform, that takes care of all the legals for a UK funding round.
Since launching in March earlier this year, SeedLegals powers two UK funding rounds every day, and dramatically speeds up the time to close a round from the traditional 3 month average, to a matter of days.
Funding rounds on the platform range from £50k ‘friends & family’ rounds through to £3m+ VC rounds. Their funding automation service also includes unlimited 1-to-1 legal support every step of the way.
SeedLegals recently won UKTN Best Fintech Startup of the Year 2017.
Anthony Rose is founder and CEO at SeedLegals, a new platform that takes care of all the legals for a UK funding round. Anthony used to head up BBC iPlayer, then built a startup. Sold it. Built another. Sold it. Got tired of paying lawyers. Built a startup to change that.
This session will be run as a roundtable event. Feel free to reach out to our Programme Manager at firstname.lastname@example.org for the access code.
