    Special Guest Amali de Alwis. Founder and CEO of Code First: Girls.

    CEO Spotlight on May 23rd 2016:

    CEO Spotlight: Through the series, we will host a senior executive from each of the leading ECF platforms, Angel Network or Accelerators, for a “Hard-talk” style interview to find out what they really offer to entrepreneurs and investors. Each will be asked the same questions, live on air; and ahead of the show, to provide some “core” data and statistics about their platform. We’ll be adding these to the website soon, so you can compare and contrast.

    This week in CEO Spotlight we’re joined by Rose Lewis, co-founder & CEO of Collider – an accelerator with a focus on MAD- (Marketing & Advertising) tech. In this interview, Rose gives us a great insight into what makes Collider tick.

    How it works - for entrepreneursHow it works - for members

    At Intelligent Crowd TV

    We believe that the purpose of The Crowd is to act together to help launch great companies, but at the same time to make decisions independently based on information and insight.  The Crowd isn’t there to be followed but to act in unison, as a syndicate.

    Intelligent Crowd TV helps you to find those great companies. They won’t all succeed but we believe that Intelligent Crowd companies will outperform crowdfunded companies generally.

    How to make best use of Intelligent Crowd:

    During an event on Crowdfunding that we co-hosted with Bloomberg Tradebook in London, we ran a straw poll to ask our audience of City professionals:

    • Do you have the skills to evaluate start-up investment opportunities?
    • Do you have adequate time?

    Click here to find out what they said.

    So if you’re time-poor but have income tax you could be offsetting, Intelligent Crowd could be what you need. HMRC sets an annual limit of £100,000 that you can invest in SEIS companies and attract income tax relief at the higher rate of 50% - click here for more details. So to make maximum use of your allowance you could, for example, decide to invest £2000 in one out of the four companies showcased on Intelligent Crowd each week. By the end of the year you will have built a diversified portfolio of 50 companies (all IHT- and CGT-free) and be due £50,000 rebate from HMRC.

    What we do, and how we get paid for producing Intelligent Crowd TV

    We scour the world to bring you the finest ingredients for your balanced start-up and early -stage equity portfolio. Displayed clearly, grilled gently, and served to you on a plate occasionally with a liberal sprinkling of healthy scepticism, every Thursday at 19h00 GMT from January 2015.

    If you were to invest in a small AIM stock, offshore oil exploration, an African diamond mine or junk bonds, you would be able to find research to assist your decision. Crowdfunded investments remain the only asset class where you are invited to invest your money, without the benefit of any third party research at all. There is a good reason for this: individually, the fundraisings are too small to support commercial research. However, we believe that opportunities can be curated based on some simple rules and information. More information means more intelligent crowdfunding decisions.

    We're looking for innovative new businesses which are scalable, with an international - ideally global - market, in any sector. With the help of our partners at Argus Research, one of the longest established independent research firms in the USA, we are finding compelling stories & impressive managements behind investment-ready propositions.

    Each Thursday, Nick Batsford – City stalwart and financial journalist - will talk with four management teams before handing them over to John Eade, President of Argus Research, and you, our audience, for live Q&A via Skype. Then you’re invited to register an expression of interest with us: an amount that you think you might wish to invest, subject to review of the full business plan and financials, on our nominated FCA-regulated Crowdfunding platform.

    If you, our audience, collectively indicate that a company could achieve its fundraising objective, it will go live, with our audience receiving a link which provides priority access in the investment round for 48 hours. When an investment round closes successfully, Intelligent Crowd TV is paid part of the total fee charged by the Crowdfunding platform to the company.
