Artificial Intelligence (AI) in the Wellness Sector
This company uses AI to help employees look after their physical and mental health whilst at work. Using AI algorithms developed in conjunction with a leading university, the system delivers personalised prompts, or ‘nudges’, throughout the working day, that encourages and logs daily wellness activities such as physical, mental health hydration and nutrition. Currently being tested on 50 users, the ‘customer-ready’ version will launch mid-year.
Social Media Data Analysis
An in-house system has been developed that provides leading-edge real-time analysis of social data by volume, sentiment, emotion and demographics. The company is in revenue and lists the World Economic Forum, ITV and Twitter and the Premier League as clients. As an example, it analyses the content around every Premier League match each week. Syndicated content on the platform goes out to more than 100M people every week.
SaaS Sector – New Payment Portal
Working within the payments industry for many years, this company has developed a new payment portal which gained approval from MasterCard in early January this year. It has just gone live and to-date, has already processed over £2.5M in transactions. Other similar systems are ready for launch or are in development with other customers and another major bank has selected the company to issue wearable devices to 6M of its customers, ahead of a live launch in May.
Organic Produce Stores in the Healthcare Sector
Poised to capitalise on the growing appetite for organic produce on the go, this Company, which Launched in 2014, now has two stores and 3 concessions in London yoga studios.

It is now looking to raise further investment to expand this successful model by opening more outlets and concessions.
