It is co-founded by two experienced entrepreneurs, who successfully built and exited a previous online business.

Initial work has already been started in the building of the MVP, which will act as a personalised portal for customers with a data driven algorithmic approach acting as a key component of the product.
Micro seed investment has come directly from the founders at this stage. This money has been assigned to developing the technical and data requirements for the MVP. Discussions are already underway to raise an initial seed investment round in the region of £300-500k.
