Kingwood-on-Thames Ltd is a company run by experienced businessman James Slater who is part of a truly enterprising family whose interests include amphibious tours in central London and the manufacture of amphibious machines. He’s spearheading the acquisition of River Thames Boat Hire Ltd – a riverboat charter company with an annual turnover of £100,000. After extensive research, James has identified several areas of the Thames Boat Hire business which can be improved on. Having singled out each of the weaknesses, Kingwood-on-Thames will remodel the business to strengthen it from the bottom up, creating new partnerships, enhancing facilities and delivering additional marketing to initially increase the number of annual charters from 50 to 250 over four years. This represents a conservative 35% of the boats potential usage (the company has outlined 728 charters per annum as part of its forecasts). It is expected this will take sales from £100,000 to £1.25m in 4 years. A £300,000 equity deal for 25% of the company is available to investors. James himself will be investing £100,000 of the total amount alongside Funding Tree investors. You can join James as he endeavors to turn a steady, under-appreciated charter company into a more profitable, sought-after business. Plans in brief: - James will hire a dedicated, passionate manager to handle the business and take it from zero marketing to multiple marketing techniques and also drive the creation of new partnerships to increase brand awareness. - A new website featuring efficient contact and booking systems is currently in development by Somerset Website Services. It will be launched in the next few weeks under the Kingwood-on-Thames Ltd (KTL) banner. - New online advertising and increased social media activity and email marketing campaigns. - The remodeling of the business to incorporate high value clients as well as standard clients. This charter business has a unique selling point in its vessel’s historical significance. The Kingswood vessel was one of the 861 ‘little ships’ used for the evacuation of the British Expeditionary Force from Dunkirk in Operation Dynamo between 27 May and 4 June 1940. (www.adls.org.uk). The boat is in excellent condition having completed a maintenance check and survey in spring 2014 by Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA).

IHUMAN FITNESS LTD. Leisure and Tourism SEIS
iHuman Fitness Ltd brings the gym into the 21st century. The company offers fitness classes that move away from conventional gyming methods – big room with lots of people and perspiration – instead downsizing it into compact, personal training sessions where people interact with instructors on a human level. Sessions are a maximum of five, meaning a low ratio of participants to instructors. The company established its flagship gym in St. John’s Wood in May 2014. Since then it has grown to run 8 classes a day with 371 members. Along with its pop-up gym in Canary Wharf, which has attracted 100’s of people through its doors since opening in Summer 2015, the company is currently making sales of £7,560. With £80,000 investment for 10% of the business, iHuman Fitness will open a second permanent location in Canary Wharf – to be called The Office – with its pop-up site proving that there is a market for its popular take on fitness in the area. All going well, a third branch will open in Liverpool street by the end of 2016, and with all three sites bringing in business, by the end of 2018, the company expects to make total revenues of £1,876,700. The idea for iHuman was born from a rather somber chain of events. Owner Mohamed El-Kadey was only young when he suffered the loss his father to a heart attack. At the age of 26 he realised his own health was taking a downward spiral and feared he might suffer the same health issues as his late dad. This prompted him to re-evaluate his health and fitness, taking on a variety of fitness challenges including the London 2010, Berlin 2011, and Paris 2013 marathons as well as taking a new approach to nutrition. He decided he wanted to help people benefit from health and fitness – much in the same way he has in an attempt to prevent ill health for as many people as he could reach. This led to the opening of the first of his gym’s in 2014, offering small scale fitness classes that enable participants to actually learn about health and nutrition on a personal basis from instructors.
