CoachYourWay Ltd Vehicles and Transport EIS SEIS
CYWL has grown organically since its formation, with its own investment capital and resources. Considering the realistic insight into the global demand for an online sports specific coaching portal to the market, we will need to move from R&D pre-reveune traction stage to Sales and Profit stage. This can be achieve via a £100k Second Seed/Angel round. CYWL has very ambitious plans to expand the company. To realise the full potential of becoming a world class company CYWL plans in January 2015 to raise by way of debt/equity a sum in the region of £1.5M growth capital. Each of these proposed plans will provide extended global reach across the sector, consumer acquisition and increased return on revenues. It has aligned its sales, marketing and operations to become a major participant in a rapidly expanding market. Revenues of £80M growth scenario are expected with a strong EBITDA margin over the next 5 years. "CoachAnyWay is a online sports coaching portal, giving you the opportunity to learn any sport, coached in a variety of ways" www.coachanyway.com Problem Access to Free sports coaching content and saving time searching the web to find right type of coaching content and resources Solution  An all in one sports coaching portal/service, helping users find a variety of coaching content and resources for them to use as they progress  CoachAnyWay has no barriers to entry, this is what makes it appealing to users! Coach Your Way Limited’s strategy will be to deliver www.coachanyway.com globally, that penetrates the global market and establishes itself as “the” world” destination as a provider for its digital marketing platforms for the general public seeking sports tuition, educational systems, coaches and sporting organisations. CYWL provides a service that can directly benefit society, by encouraging active behaviour, whilst generating high revenues and growth. CYWL is targeting consumers with and interest in 8 vertical sports; Football, Tennis, Golf, Cricket, Rugby, Basketball, Netball and Boxing, underpinning their objective of capturing a segment of the global sports market, which is set to be worth $145 billion US dollars by (2015) and the worldwide e-learning market is estimated at $91 billion In the US alone (2013). Unlike sport sites that focus on their own specific channel, CYWL will perpetuate and support initially 8 channels of sports education and tutorial, the ongoing conversation and social network via the web and mobile platforms, to then increase this number to 32 sports channels over 5 years.     •    There is no global destination for sport education.      •    A platform where users can produce and broadcast their coaching methods to the public     •    There is no true personalisation for sports. Facebook, YouTube and others try, but they have not accommodated segmentation of sports users.     •    Latest sports products will be targeted to users via advertisements relevant to their specific interest.     •    Delivering a continually expanding and evolving library, always providing current information     •    Website structure that encourages ‘social activity’ and ‘networking’ between coaches and other members, www.coachanyway.com is the’ Linkedin for Sports Coaches’   Our Proposed Business Model: 1) During the Beta stage of development we will be able to track the top 8 leading sports that have triggered the most interest from the public. Using this information we will engage with sporting brands allied to those top 8 sports to explore opportunities for them to advertise on the www.coachanyway.com website. For example the Golf channel is selected via a user, with up to 20 videos per page, alined brands in Golf such as Callaway, Adams, Bridgestone, Cleveland, can all compete and be inline with these videos down the side, to sell their products to an extremely targeted audience interested not just in Golf, but in recreating a Golf Swing, Putt. This will be an added incentive for users to buy from these advertisers offering these products, thus saving them time having leaving CoachAnyWay and search across the internet for these items needed to play Golf. Over time, as determined by user interest in over 32 sports, we expand the opportunity for advertisers to use our website, from initial 32 advertisers on 8 sports to 128 potential advertisers on 32 sports and increasing there after. The top 4 biding companies in each sport will be able to choose from a starting advertising price and method of advertising, as per the following examples: Pay per impression [8 initial advertisers pay £3 per 1,000 hits (0.1%)] Pay per click [8 initial advertisers pay £.20 per 100 hits (1%)] Cost per engagement [8 initial advertisers pay £.20 per 100 hits (1%) year 1 and £.30 year 2] Pay per lead [8 initial advertisers pay £2 per 200 hits (0.5%) year 1 and £3 year 2] 2) 50% of content will be Premium Content, with starting costs at £1 per download in year one and £2 in year two. We currently have over 80,000 video downloads a month on our prototype so the usage is there! 3) IOS and Android Applications will go on sale for £2 year one and £3 year two 4) Directory referral fees on a monthly basis, A Directory to find coaches in your surrounding area  A Map Directory, for individual sport governing bodies coaching courses for users to learn how to coach A Businesses Directory using google maps, so users can find local coaching businesses providing coaching Total sales are forecasted at £691,703 Year 1 (2015) to £25,506,908 Year 5 (2019) Net cash flow forecasted at £134,996 (2015) / £3,942,175 (2016) / £9,779,542 (2017) / £15,446,959 (2018) /  £20,412,881 (2019)   You need to be registered as an investor to see this Join Now

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
