Koble claims that its data-driven Software as a Service (SaaS) tool helps accelerators and incubators streamline their selection process so they can focus on the most promising founders. The company's vision is to price early-stage startup risk and reward. It intends to move from a Software as a Service (SaaS) workflow tool to the startup-investor marketplace. Koble asserts that pre-seed and seed investors lack a quantitative approach in the early stage of recognising promising startups. Koble argues that its approach is different; it claims that its algorithms are built to mimic the decision processes (both analytical and intuitive) that humans go through when analysing a startup. The tool collects structured, well-tagged data that is not available in the public domain and power the first algorithms that can predict startup success. The company envisages three exit options, namely launching an IPO, avail buyout offers from big technology entities and avail buyout offers from financial buyers.

Business Finance Market (BFM) is a financial technology platform that stimulates the market towards Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) lending via data in the UK. BFM claims that SMEs are gradually being excluded from mainstream banking. The company cites that in 1988, 40% of all bank lending went to SMEs. BFM points out that lending today is closer to 4% with an estimated £22 billion funding gap to the 5.9 million UK SMEs.

Hemspan states that it designs bio-based building systems and products for construction by combining modern methods, technology and hemp to produce net-zero carbon solutions.

The company points out that peptides are amino acids that are the building blocks of certain proteins needed by the skin, like collagen and elastin.

Zentraxa argues that Zentide can circumvent previously existing bio-design limits imposed by conventional peptide synthesis and produce tailor-made biomaterials for healthcare, personal care and industrial uses. Zentraxa is initially targeting healthcare with its first biomaterial, a debondable adhesive, for use in wound care. The company asserts that the material has other uses such as cosmetics and industrial applications due to its ability to bond strongly while still being easily and painlessly removable. Zentraxa will use the investment to create a portfolio of other biomaterials for licensing to global businesses in the health and industrial sectors via its Zentide platform.
