Business Pitches

Bruce Abbott - OmniKlick Ltd The Consumers Choice of Search Engine. Do you get frustrated when you are shopping on-line and doing a big shop by having to constantly move between multiple online stores, hotels, restaurants or lifestyle websites? OmniKlick resolves this issue by allowing users to filter favoured preferences from thousands of websites on one easy to use platform.

By saving favourites to OmniKlick, users are able to quickly complete purchases across multiple domains via third party shopping carts.
Omniklick literally brings 2030 into 2015. Visually intuitive, users can search & preview multiple website content via image driven popup windows. Share favourites with friends and family via social media as well as searching for special offers. Combined with the ability to add third party WebPages to favourites with 'the intent to purchase', makes OmniKlick an exciting new online search engine for both consumers and businesses alike. Because of this, conversion click through rates and unique content are expected to be very high.
Bruce brings 14 years of hands on experience of SEO, self-funded the development of OmniKlick to date and is now looking for help with access to potential investors or joint marketing initiatives in return for an equity share to accelerate the Go-To-Market plans.

Bola Adegbulu - AutoMosys AutoMosys is exposing consumer vehicular data to create a marketplace for both consumers and mechanics.
The first product is a downloadable mobile application coupled with a small proprietary "plug and play" adapter, which is fitted into the diagnostic port in the car (available in every car made after 2001). The adapter reads data from the car. The data is presented in a beautiful mobile app using advanced analytics and algorithms.
The app:
. Works out the car's health
. Works out expected cost of all required repairs and perspicuously communicates this to the driver
. Connects you to competing offers from mechanics based on the car's particular needs.
Having only been in operations for a few months, we have secured a letter of interest to provide our services to a large mechanic with 50,000 customers. Bola is the Founder and CEO of AutoMosys and was the Head of Operations and Customer Fulfilment at Viewsy (an award winning hardware/software startup with a similar business model to AutoMosys). The team of four is made up of engineering graduates from Harvard/Imperial and Brunel, a professor of Computer Science as well as an automotive veteran who developed one of the most successful telemetry systems in the F1."

** Bola was voted best pitch of the evening
