“I received investment for FabFob from members of Digital Entrepreneur following a pitch in May 2013 and as a result managed to get a retail wireless keyfinder prototype produced and launched at Marketing Week Live in June 2013 – the show was a huge success for us with amongst other opportunities a quotation for 1.3 million units for a household brand now in the pipeline.”
Nick Brummitt – Founder of FabFob
“We enjoyed a favourable response after the Digital Entrepreneur Pitch event held in July 2013. Two weeks later & after many calls, emails & meetings we secured investment.”
The investment forms part of our overall ‘seed’ fund target. The money is to be used collectively with other funds raised to provide a runway to take Bubbles through to next year & our intention to raise a major sum as part of our ‘Early Stage’ phase.
My best advice to anyone seeking funds is to accept every opportunity offered. You may not succeed in finding an investor – directly – but pitching ‘live’ and to an experienced and critical audience is immeasurable in routing out weaknesses in a presentation.
Finally, thanks to pitching at another event where I ‘sucked’ I met an amazing start-up entrepreneur who I learned from & whom in turn hooked me up with Duncan Gledhill at Digital Entrepreneur.
Julian Fisher – Founder of Bubbles
