CrowdToLive is a Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) regulated financial technology company that seeks to revolutionise residential property financing and investment. It claims that 4 out of 10 young homeowners in the UK have had their mortgage applications rejected. CrowdToLive intends to change this by facilitating a circular flow of finance between buy to let investors and the homebuyers. It argues that its platform allows buyers to own their homes without incurring debt and lets investors reap the rewards of the housing market without the hassle of tenant management. The company claims it has built a community of over 7,000 users, submitted over 2,600 properties for a value of circa GBP 600 million, and is a part of accelerator programmes such as Virgin Start-Up Accelerator Programme and Barclays Eagle Lab Accelerator Programme. CrowdToLive intends to use 10% of the investment to support international expansion, 15% towards business development, 40% towards hiring key personnel, 25% towards upgrading its IT infrastructure, and 10% towards marketing.

Auddy is on a mission to build a data-driven podcast publisher for mainstream audio podcasts from top producers. The company points out that 1 in 5 people listen to podcasts in the UK with over 50 million episodes published each day. Auddy stresses that this creates significant competition and confusion for the podcast producers, with many great podcasts going unnoticed due to a lack of editorial, promotional, and commercial support. Auddy intends to change this. The company guides a creator’s show from birth to distribution and advertising sales, helping creators make money via royalty shares. Auddy claims to use data to research shows that need to be broadcast widely fine-tuning the show for editorial and commercial advantage. Auddy points out that its podcast catalogue witnessed 5.5 million UK downloads. It wants to become a contender in the £7 billion podcast industry and has featured in press such as Telegraph, Financial Times and The Guardian. The company will use the investment to become a data-centric publisher for its producers and customers alike globally.

SortFlow's proprietary software solution intends to optimise the design and operation of waste recovery and recycling plants.

SortFlow released Version 1 of its software in October 2020, which is still being used in 5 countries by early adopter customers, including leading industry players such as Suez & Bollegraaf. SortFlow intends to release Version 2 later in 2021 and commercially roll it out to the broader market. The company aspires to become a contender in the waste management industry valued at an estimated £295 billion.
