Capital Pilot is entering an exciting phase and we wanted to share a few things with you.
Expanding our Reach
For one thing, we are heading out into the regions and building partnerships with sector specialists to provide startups and investors a forum to connect and grow. Our team has grown considerably over the last year, and there is a lot more to come.
For another – we are in the middle of our seed round, with the aim of raising £500k. This will enable us to make some additional key hires, starting with a Head of Marketing and Community and a couple of Customer Success managers, with several more to follow in short order. It will also support the launch of Autopilot, our robo-VC proposition. That will see us invest alongside all the companies who are approved through the Capital Pilot process.
We truly believe we are solving large scale problems that will make the whole early-stage funding marketplace operate more smoothly. The current market is an inefficient mess. We aim to bring transparency, efficiency and velocity.
Growth is ramping up – and we are just getting started. Up until now we’ve relied on word of mouth and referrals from our friends (thanks!) to get early adopters. We’ve learned a lot along the way, and now are at the point where we can begin making some real news and getting our name out there. Our just announced partnership with Hill+Knowlton Strategies who have come onboard as Capital Pilot’s strategic PR advisors will make a huge difference in this process, getting our message out to the wider startup and investment communities – explaining what Capital Pilot is doing and the revolution we are staging to support early stage technology startups.
We have about half the round committed, led by angels involved in our prior round and new investors. We’d be very happy to hear from you if you are interested in joining them. We’ll send along our pitch deck and financial model, and let’s get a coffee!
