We are currently in preparation for our Series A. We have run valuation model simulations to determine a reasonable company valuation. At this stage we will look to raise approximately £3million in exchange for a 10% equity stake in Immersionn. Closing the Series A fundraise will represent a significant increase in the value of the equity for our early stage investors.
Our objective with a Series A raise is to be able to scale the business faster than what we would be able to do organically. We require a dedicated sales team to build and convert our sales pipeline. Additionally we are looking to launch more products to enhance our current offering.
We will reach out to you in a separate communication of the Series A details and of course all investors will be invited to further participate.
During 2020 we shifted from VR first to Desktop/Large screen first.
In 2022, our solution will shift to mobile first. This is a step further towards delivering 5G ready 3D discovery of businesses offerings.
2021 was a commercial success for Immersionn. The large contracts awarded validated the business idea and demonstrated the potential. Financial highlights include:
GROSS PROFIT 350%
Becoming profitable is a major milestone for Immersionn. We believe we can continue to be operational without requiring further major investment which is a cause for celebration!
In 2022, our key focus will be to accelerate sales productivity. We will do so by establishing a sales team and a high quality resellers/agency network. Reach out if you are interested in selling out solution.
We are sure there are some Investors who would like to know how they can further help us!
At present our main focus is on growing the business which means we need to get our foot in the doors of as many relevant companies as possible. If you feel like we are a good fit with a company you are close to we would ask that you get in contact with our new Sales Director Gordon and let him know. email@example.com
Additionally while we are preparing for Series A you might be connected into some institutional investors or VC’s who would be interested in adding us to their portfolio. If this is the case please reach out to our Finance Advisor David to let him know. firstname.lastname@example.org
As we mentioned this year is about scaling for us. We have developed a significant sales pipeline which we are confident will bear fruit. In addition we have engaged a growth accelerator who assists us in sourcing leads and providing introductions to potential customers.
On the product front we have matured our offering and we are refining our product to offer different styles and tastes to suit different customers.
We are also working on our pricing model and trying to further optimise our commercial process to allow for scaling.
Again we would like to express our deep felt thanks to all our investors for your faith in Immersionn. We will endeavour to work our asses off to repay your faith in us!
We apologise for the lack of communication to date but we will commit to keep you better informed in the future.
All the best
The Immersionn Team
