Hello Investors and Potential Investors!

So, after 14 months of outstandingly hard work and our poor 13x Software Developers, frying their fingers to the bone for 10 of those months and our 2x Content Curators making everything beautiful, we officially launched Yourkeys to the world, on Friday 7th of September 2018.

We complicated matters somewhat, by taking advice from a major branding expert who advised us to drop the Z in our name (yes that was a bit cheesy) and to distance ourselves from the branding of the Rightmove green. We then tested various colour schemes in a survey in which 315 people responded and the overwhelming winner was the colour scheme you now see.

So, while we’re very proud of our new baby, please bear in mind that we only have 3 developments on the platform at this stage, so are in the phase of ‘stocking the supermarket shelves’ with lots more new developments.

Finally, we’re excited for you to try it out (www.yourkeys.com) and are super keen to keep improving it.  Therefore, if you can think of anything at all, please could you either take a screen shot of something you think does not work or just fire your suggestion into us at feedback@yourkeys.com.

Thank you once again, for your faith in us when we needed you the most.  We’re now at the start of an exciting journey to grow our company and provide you with fantastic investor returns.

Here’s a couple of snaps of the Yourkeys team celebrating the launch!

Investor Activity

New Investor

The latest news with investors is that we’ve secured Kai Ranjan (Ran) as an advisor and Executive Director on our board, on behalf of his company, Highgate Asset Management.  Ran brings over 30 years of experience in business, specialising in finance and property.  He is leading a syndicate of investors for our (EIS Qualified) £450k round and has thus far introduced us to 14 people from his network, most of which would like to invest in this round.

Existing Investors

Thank you to SEVEN of our original SEIS investors who followed their money and have made bigger investments in YK – some of these include:

Daryl Woodhouse
Anisha Brahmbhatt
Anjum Rajan
Ross Burgoyne

Balderton

Balderton is a respected VC who are interested in the multi £M fund raise next year.

Turkish Investor

KC has invested in the EIS round with the ultimate aim to take the platform to Turkey and have it in both languages. The reason is that he has massive access to developers who are keen to do a fire sale on their properties due to the financial woes of Turkey.  This could be an interesting work in progress.

Cocoon Network

Cocoon is a Chinese investor but based at Silicon Roundabout (Old St).  We presented to seek investment from their own fund and they also introduced us to Chinese investors based in China.

Troy Homes

Met with potential investors (Simon & Richard from Troy Homes) for the EIS round who are also house developers

Pentech VC

Had a long call with Tiffany Young from Pentech who liked the idea and she wants to be kept in the loop for the next funding round.

Crowd for Angels

We were approved to list on Crowd for Angels, a crowdfunding platform aimed at more serious angel investors.  However, as we have already secured enormous interest in our EIS round then there is little point in listing.

Walking Ventures

Had initial discussions with Walking Ventures and they’re still considering.

East Meets Wests

The Caledonian Club: Craig & Ric attended East Meets West Pitch Event

In Other News

Galliard Homes

Met with David Galman from Galliard Homes who loved the platform. Further meetings have been scheduled to discuss integration with their main CRM platform, Salesforce.

Stanhope

Met with Peter Allen from Stanhope who has agreed to pilot the platform for a new development early next year.

New Team Member

Jo (Hongxuan) Piao we have an intern from Coventry University until the end of November who is specialising in our Blockchain Project.

Blockchain Project

We have a project underway to evaluate YK putting the conveyancing process onto the blockchain, issuing smart contracts and allowing buyers to use crypto currency to purchase their new homes.  If you have any deep knowledge of the Blockchain then I would be interested in sharing our strategy to get your feedback.

WeWork Moorgate

Chris & Craig attended ‘An Evening with Venture Capitalists’ – We did a 3 x min pitch and got 9 business cards of interested parties.  However, the major result was finding our perfect Blockchain Partner, Automation Squared.
