Dorset Business Angels logoDorset Business Angels will soon get together for their Autumn pitch event, welcoming another cohort of entrepreneurs looking to impress the angel investors with their business ideas.

Held at the Bournemouth Carlton Hotel on Monday 9th October, the event will see five early-stage founders take to the stage.


The five pitches are as follows:

An online B2B marketplace helping tradespeople identify and purchase plumbing and heating parts. It already boasts 250,000 products across 3,000 stores.

A video fire detection solution gaining traction in multiple countries, with an emphasis on areas which are challenging to cover with standard fire detection systems.

A digital book platform aiming to meet the wide demand – particularly among younger generations – for engaging digital reading experiences. It offers audiobooks in an exclusive and integrated listen-and-read format at an affordable, subscription-free price.

An optical products brand transforming harmful ocean plastics like discarded fishing gear into sunglasses and glasses frames – a clear draw for environmentally conscious consumers.

A unique digital logbook for recording and sharing sailing experiences through a user-friendly app. It has potential to attract a substantial user base and provide various revenue streams through unique datasets and subscriptions.


Peter EalesPeter Eales, Director and Co-Founder of Dorset Business Angels, said: “Our event this October promises to be memorable as we commemorate DBA’s 10th anniversary.

“Steve Berry, our Honorary President and fellow Co-Founder, will say a few words to mark this milestone.

“Reflecting on the multitude of early-stage businesses DBA has supported over the years is truly remarkable.

“Since 2013, we’ve successfully raised and facilitated well over £4 million of equity capital.”

Dorset Business Angels connect high net worth and sophisticated investors across the county with quality private equity investment opportunities, thanks in part to the support and sponsorship of Saffery, Ellis Jones, and Investec.

Their upcoming event will also feature a champagne reception for members and guests.
