Midlands Investor Network – 18th May Spring 2011 Event and Current Businesses

The Midlands Investor Network Group is holding a second “Showcasing and Networking” event on Wednesday 18th May at 6.30pm.

The evening will, again be at The Royal Bank of Scotland Group, 4th Floor, 2, St Philips Place, Birmingham, B3 2RB at 6.30pm. We will showcase between 6 and 8 business opportunities.  We can outline some of those businesses already and have a very brief outline of some of the opportunities available below.

To attend the event, please contact Christine Gilligan T: 0121 236 3317 E:  We are requesting a £10 fee to cover the costs of the event, however, at the previous event all funds were donated to the Birmingham Acorns Children’s Hospice.

We already have a number of businesses who are working with us to attend the event and promote their businesses for future investment.  As we intend to continue with the event being held seasonally throughout 2011 and beyond, both in Birmingham and in other Midlands cities, we would welcome more businesses looking for investment to be part of future events.  Our founding group meet regularly to review new businesses and this is an on-going process so current business plans and presentations are very welcome to be submitted for review.

The businesses that we have accepted so far include the following exciting opportunities:

Medical device opportunity

This company has developed a lightweight patient carrying system to carry patients through body scanners.  The innovative board allows the scan to be carried out for 360 degree review with limited interference from the board itself.

Branded Footwear Online Retailer

This company has established itself as the largest independent retailer of footwear online, having been one of the first-movers in the sector back in 1999.  The company now benefits from an extensive product portfolio that includes some of the most sought after names in the branded footwear market.

The company has been heavily active in Europe and plans to exploit the emerging online EU market.

App Gaming Business

Developing games for App use for I Phone, Windows and Android formats, this new business is launching its first game.  The owners/developers have come from a gaming background, having worked for larger gaming businesses.

File Encryption Key Business

The company has developed and patented a unique key system that encrypts computer files with a secure encryption system and algorithm.  This is being developed to allow cloud and internet applications to replace the need for passwords but ensure significantly improved file security.

Toothbrush Cleaning and Storage System

The company has designed a unique and stylish toothbrush storage system that both stores, cleans and sterilises the toothbrush.

Educational Game

The business has developed an educational family darts game and already has the interest of Tesco as a retail outlet.  To promote the game, the business has also the support of former world’s darts champion, Phil “The Power” Taylor.

Classical Crossover music project album and tour

This entertainment opportunity is a cross-over classical music project bringing together a young soprano with the writers of the music of Lord of the Dance.  The project takes classical music and interprets the pieces into modern dance and ballad tracks, mixing modern key board with a world famous violinist.  The project has part completed an album and is looking to both complete the album and commence a UK tour.
