The Seed and EIS Hour, produced by Intelligent Crowd TV, begins its third season on May 16, 2016.
Launched first in 2015, it is the world’s first series dedicated to seed-stage funding by Crowd, Angel, Private Equity, Family Office and Corporate Venturing investors. The focus is on curated, harder-to-explain B2B investment opportunities and streams. It goes out live at 8pm every Mondays to PCs, smartphones and tablets.
The programme is based around two companies being selected for interview, together with two guests from the industry discuss topical or educational issues such as understanding the tax benefits; building an early-stage company portfolio; or identifying and valuing great early-stage businesses.
What’s more, the audience hears a commentary on the companies showcased each week, from Argus Research. They can also join the program via Skype, allowing them to put questions directly to the entrepreneurs. Importantly, during, or after each program, the audience can register their interest in particular companies – in order to be first in line when the company starts to raise funds.
CEO Shane Smith commented: “The Seed & EIS Hour is proud to have played a part in the fundraising journeys of fifteen of the companies showcased in Seasons 1 & 2, and we’re looking forward to interviewing a new portfolio of exciting early-stage companies in the coming series.
“Typically the companies that we select to showcase have more sophisticated business models or products than average but, in our view, offer superior investment prospects – particularly as part of the diversified and balanced portfolio approach that we advocate. The Seed & EIS Hour provides an opportunity for our brightest young companies to explain themselves to potential investors – and provides our audience with an efficient and powerful tool to find and evaluate the leading companies of the future.”
You can watch the first episode of The Seed and EIS Hour on Monday 16th May at 8pm here.
