Emortal is on a mission to enable families to protect, preserve and pass on their legacies digitally. The company converts a family's digital content into the latest file formats, stores it in a digital vault, and futureproofs it via Google's proprietary technology to provide access anytime, anywhere, and across any device when requested by family members. Emortal assesses that its portal has been designed to integrate its preservation technology with a future proof legacy fund to pay for the continuous updates needed to ensure that the digital family heritage lasts for generations to come. Emortal was subject to an acquisition offer of USD 12.1 million by Microsoft in 2010. The company aims to launch in Q3 2021 to capture the interest of other big technology companies to invest in its business model.

YoungPlanet enables parents to put their children's unused things to use with new families and away from landfills for free via its app. The company cites PwC data estimating the UK’s sharing economy to be worth £9 billion by 2025. It aims to be a contender in this segment. The company argues further that 10-year-olds in the UK will own on average 238 toys at any one time and yet play with just 12. This leads to UK households wasting over 25 million tonnes a year, with one-fourth of this number ending up in landfills as per the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA). YoungPlanet aims to change this. It has onboarded 36,000 users on its platform to date and featured in press publications such as BBC News, Vanessa Feltz, and LadBible. YoungPlanet will use the investment to scale nationally, begin generating first phase revenue via brand sponsorship of events, branded gamification, and Business-to-Business (B2B) subscriptions for semi-closed communities via its app.

Findr argues that it has made 'Discovery' for free for the first few months to build its user base. The company has onboarded 140 business users ranging from early-stage to global brands such as Mastercard, Uber and Visa since November 2020. Findr has featured in Forbes for helping businesses navigate COVID-19. The company will use the investment to develop two new price plans – Unlimited and Enterprise, introduce new platform features, hire a machine learning expert, and undertake digital activity to grow its user base.
