DeadHappy is a digital-first life insurance provider that aims to disrupt the £3.7 billion life insurance market. The company claims that traditional life insurance is complex, expensive, and inflexible. DeadHappy argues that it can offer customers a cheap, flexible and enjoyable alternative. It has developed a unique pay-as-you-go life insurance product with a rolling 10 year guarantee of cover. A simple sign-up process allows customers to answer only 4 medical questions & obtain cover in under 5 minutes, on-line, via their mobile phone. The company's proprietary Deathwish Platform enables customers to personalise their life insurance by creating ‘Deathwishes’. In 2020, DeadHappy reached 120,000+ total deathwishes and has sold 7,800+ total life insurance policies. The company will use 35% of the investment for company growth, 30% for technology development, 20% for product development, and 15% to build partnerships.

Cocoon Card Limited (Cocoon) is a financial technology company that helps businesses grow by helping them understand which customers they should provide 0% interest payment terms to. It also helps them collect and manage these payments. The company's software has two components, that is, Risk Management Module (RMM) and Instalment Collection Module (ICM). RMM assesses if a potential customer can pay in instalments while ICM prepares a collection plan if the customer is deemed creditworthy. Cocoon asserts that its product removes the need for third-party lenders and allows businesses to serve the UK's ~14 million 'thin-file' consumers that are rejected from mainstream 0% interest finance. The company has envisioned an investment target of £150,000 and anticipates an exit in 3-5 years by either a trade sale or Private Equity (PE) buyout.

Chip started with autosaving and seamless access to market-leading saving accounts. With its premium account ChipX, the company is venturing into investment funds, savings accounts, and pensions. It will use the investment to open up its investor community to new and existing investors to participate in this convertible round.

Rnwl is aiming to be the first ever over-the-top insurance platform. The company asserts that conventional insurance companies rely on a lead generation business model that is archaic and inefficient. These result in a customer's insurance options becoming an expensive and time-consuming affair. Rnwl is endeavouring to simplify this. Users can enter their credentials and requirements on the Rnwl website. The company will analyse the market and suggest the best deals for the user. Rnwl has been accepted into the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA's) Innovation Hub. It will use 74% of the investment in human resource, 14% in marketing, and 12% as operational costs.
pledged: 125% days to go: 32 investment: £188,398
B-North is a UK-based business lending company. It has combined cloud-native technology with face-to-face relationship banking. The company asserts that SMEs account for over 60% of private-sector employment in the UK, have driven job growth over the past ten years, and are central to driving economic recovery. It intends to disrupt the £150 billion UK Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) lending market. B-North has raised a seed capital of over £6.8 million including a six-figure investment from the Greater Manchester Combined Authority to establish its core team, as well as, build lending and deposit-taking platforms. The company is now seeking further investment through a bridge round to extend the cash runway from the end of Q4 2020 into Q1-Q2 2021 to achieve the necessary regulatory capital to become a bank and commence lending.
