In September 2016 James (who was looking for funding of his own) casually asked:

An idea was born...
THE PLATFORM EXPANDS
1 year, 50 pitches and 3 investments later...
We started for ourselves, doing some social marketing to get pitches in. 50 pitch conversations and three investments later, we had so much fun, we knew we had something cool!
It was time to expand the platform.
We have added a lot more investors, with more waiting in the wings, expanding the funding opportunities available for entrepreneurs.
