GoBubble is a child-centered content moderation software that aims to create a safer, healthier, and kinder digital community for schools. GoBubble asserts that its technology can check all content before it appears such as text, emojis, photos, and videos. The company argues that this reduces the industry's over-reliance on traditional human moderation. The global moderation industry was valued at £3.74 billion in 2019. GoBubble aims to be a significant contender in this segment. The company has successfully launched its app in 68 countries across 1700 schools. Its new at-home child-messenger application, GoBubbleKids, is available on iOS and Android. The company has featured in publications like The Times, ITV, Evening Standard, and BBC. GoBubble has recorded a nearly 9x YTD increase in engagement and has a presence in the UK, USA, and UAE. The company will use the investment to scale its business globally.

Artists Ahead is a company that enables music rights holders to retain a greater proportion of the royalties generated by their music and protect their copyright. They argue that music royalties generate around £2 billion in revenue each year in the UK, but many artists receive a very small proportion of the income generated. Artists Ahead aims to change this and charge around 8% of royalties with the rest going to the artist. The platform collects both recording and publishing royalties, uses blockchain to provide proof of ownership, and holds all digital assets and royalty data in one place, accessible to the customer on any device. The company claims that its business model is transparent. They intend their business to reach maturity in 2025. It anticipates the purchase of its brand by potential buyers as a foreseeable exit plan. Artists Ahead also envisage an IPO permitting investors to trade their shares as another exit opportunity.
