Funnel Music manages and develops new artists and their rights, embracing its extensive terrestrial network and the opportunities within the establishment of a digital platform. The major labels and publishers are spending less resources in early stage development. We believe Funnel offers a de risked solution for both the artist and these companies, while working towards an intelligent mining of the opportunities of the digital engagement with the consumer . We record and develop acts at a fraction of the normal cost through in house resources and our Shared Outcome model, generating high margins from the assignment or licensing of world class recordings. This creates a templated route to expansion with the development of like minded mentor cells.  With these cells, Funnel is able to absorb a wider range of acts, process them through an intelligent and educated mentoring and nurturing journey which results in a selection of fully developed and talented artists and rights ready for global exploitation. The business model sees early returns from straight assignment of rights held together with revenues generated through the management of the artists. As the business develops, there will be a greater emphasis on the retention of rights to establish a significant catalogue of revenue generating rights and content. Funnel will broaden its artist flow through its terrestrial network in the UK and overseas together with the establishment of a gamified digital platform. The digital site will manage the increasing activities and interactions of artists and professionals as well as providing a window into the artists’ world for the wider public. The latter could ultimately lead to a D2C relationship to add to the initial B2B business. The establishment of a focussed and motivated user community will generate additional revenue streams such as data, subscription and advertising/sponsorship Harnessing its existing resources, Funnel is able to offer an additional revenue centre through the establishment of ‘boot camps’ and ‘apprenticeships’ with the added benefit of increasing artist flow as well as income. The first camp is launched in Spring 2016. In addition to receiving shares in the company, investors in Funnel Music will receive multiple concert tickets and quarterly EPs or a day in the studio with artists. More information can be found under the Updates tab. Key elements in Funnel include The development of valuable catalogue of rights Creation of supporting digital user community Experienced team in music and technology Opportunity for early funding from major companies Early returns with diverse revenue opportunities Strong existing artist flow Inclusive and expanding mentor community Shared Outcome model Cost benefits/’investment’ of in house resources - in region of £200,000

EveryCloud Computing Ltd. Technology EIS
Your Cloud  |  Your Way EveryCloud Computing has developed a white label platform for resellers to become leading cloud providers. Sold through the reseller channel, EveryCloud offer three cloud packages that can be tailored to fit a customer, through subscription based pricing: Managed Backup Hosted Servers Cloud Drive Resellers wanting to offer cloud services need to build new platforms and design new services, which have the appropriate support, billing processes and service delivery to support their customers’ demands. As businesses look to source a variety of different cloud services, increasingly from one trusted supplier, it can be hard for resellers, especially those on the smaller side, to have the funds to develop such infrastructure.  Through EveryClouds products and services, resellers can deliver innovative storage and data management solutions that satisfy their most demanding customers. Cloud computing will reduce hardware investment, minimise maintenance costs and allow the customer to focus on their own business. The EveryCloud Portal The web portal enables its customers to purchase online services and software from a range of vendors including EveryCloud. The portal is also used to manage the deployment of these purchases to the customers’ users. This includes adding & removing users, upgrading between products and adding & removing products.  Uniquely, this portal can be white-labelled to allow resellers to brand it as their own, allowing them to operate to their customers as it they were direct suppliers of Cloud services. Amongst the services that can be purchased from the EveryCloud portal are a number of EveryCloud products including; EveryCloud Virtual desktop, EveryCloud e-mail, EveryCloud Virtual Servers and a range of data protection solutions.  The Opportunity The reseller channel represents 60% of all IT spend, which means that £36bn in the UK alone can be attributed to the reseller channel. There are tens of thousands of IT resellers in the UK, with a turnover ranging from hundreds of millions of pounds down to tens of thousands. This is EveryCloud’s target market. It appears that resellers are struggling to adapt to selling Cloud services in the new paradigm of monthly subscriptions versus single one-off purchases of hardware, software and licenses. In addition, the directors believe that providers of Cloud services have failed to offer resellers what they need to be able to successfully sell these services. EveryCloud is sold as a product to the reseller who will then sell onto their client. There is no direct sales channel from EveryCloud. The EveryCloud Platform will allow resellers to offer cloud solutions built on the latest technology, without the capital investment currently needed to develop their own system.  Following previous funding rounds through Acceleris Capital, shareholders are supporting this development funding round of £200,000. The company are now prepared to offer the remaining amount of the funding round to Investing Zone investors on the same terms as the original shareholders at a minimum investment of £1000.  Why is EveryCloud different? Enables end users to buy what they want/ need in a single, flexible, variable monthly transaction. The current alternative is similar to buying groceries one item at a time, with a different transaction for each item. EveryCloud provides its resellers with generous profit margins through the provision of: • The ability to offer multiple services through a single transaction, branded in their own livery, as if they were a Cloud provider in their own right;  • The ability to provision and de-provision users quickly and efficiently;  • Transparent automated billing so customers only see the reseller as a sole supplier; and  • Training in the sales process and comprehensive support in customer enablement. Initially targeted at companies and resellers of a smaller size, EveryCloud has the capability to grow as the demand for the service increases.    You need to be registered as an investor to see this Join Now
