Five early stage companies pitch for funding at Startup Funding Club’s last investor event of 2018 Events

Startup Funding Club introduces five promising early-stage investment opportunities to business angels at its last pitching event of the year.

Last Monday 12th November, Startup Funding Club (SFC) held the latest edition of its popular pitching and networking event – the Crocodile Lair – at private members club Home House. There, SFC’s CEO Stephen Page introduced five up-and-coming early stage companies to the audience of angel investors following a brief introduction to the sponsors of the evening – SFC Bennett Brooks and Withersworldwide.

  • Sceenic provides solutions to power interactive viewing experiences.

  • The Jackal is a luxury lifestyle media brand aimed at affluent, urban men. The mission is to develop The Jackal into a trusted and influential voice, ultimately becoming an essential partner for luxury brands looking for deeper insight and engagement with this audience.
  • Phebi’s vision rests on the emergence of voice as an effective complimentary method of digital access alongside the keyboard, mouse, and swipe. The company expects voice interaction to be as revolutionary as the mouse became in the rise of GUI-based applications and believes voice can make interactions more efficient, bring digital access to those challenged by the limitations of current access methods, and create new digital transaction opportunities.
  • Olly’s Olives is a team of olive fanatics on a mission to take olives to the next level. Having launched with the world's first unpasteurised snack pouches in September 2017, they have achieved 3000+ distribution points worldwide, including 500+ Sainsbury's stores, Eurostar, Virgin Trains, Selfridges & Brewdog. They have now launched their brand new line of chilled pots. Welcome to the Olivelution.

Investors had the chance to further enquire about the innovative ventures with their founders during the short Q&A sessions that followed each pitch as well as during the subsequent networking session. With this informal discussion, Startup Funding Club closed its last pitching and networking event of the year. The organisation is already working in its 2019 cycle of events, which will introduce the SFC Angel Network to new promising early stage investment opportunities.
