London On-Air Sponsorship deal brings live TV coverage to Female Founder events in London

John Lamb LLP, a leading London Financial Planner and Wealth Manager, and Intelligent Crowd TV, the media platform for the early-stage company ecosystem, are pleased to announce a collaboration to promote and enhance the visibility of women-led businesses seeking seed and growth funding.

Under the collaboration, John Lamb LLP becomes the first sponsor of Intelligent Crowd's London On-Air initiative, which will deliver a live stream of the Capital's premium pitch and fundraising events to accredited national and international investors.

John Lamb LLP's sponsorship will support London On-Air live stream coverage of events showcasing female founders, and female investors. Event hosts simply need to register their event at www.IntelligentCrowd.TV

Managing Partner (since 1986) Paula Steele comments:

"Women-led businesses receive only a small share of the total funding available to early-stage businesses and we believe that it's important to help raise their profile and engagement with investors. Location, logistics and timing mean that physical pitching events bring together a relatively small proportion of investors who would otherwise be interested – other women in particular who might find it challenging to attend evening events. A live TV stream is a good way to address this problem.

"Additionally of course John Lamb LLP, as a business, will benefit from being able to engage with both founders and investors so effectively, through London On-Air sponsorship."

Intelligent Crowd TV CEO Shane Smith added:

"Much time and energy is invested by event organisers and companies, to reach the relatively small audiences that are able to attend physical events. We aim to substantially enhance audience reach by delivering these events to our 8,000 investor network members. More eyeballs means more engagement and ultimately, more investment. This is good for those founders, and good for our economy.

"We are delighted to be working with John Lamb LLP as first sponsor of this important initiative, and we are open to discussions for support of pitching events addressing other segments and verticals, such as overseas founders, block chain, Ed Tech, Law Tech, LGBT founders, and Fintech.

"Our ultimate goal is for London On-Air to comprehensively cover the best investor presentation events in London, and expand our operation nationally to include the regional UK start-up centres."
