Gone are the days of startups wrangling investment rounds by their lonesome; with the Seedrs platform, emerging companies and startups are able to conduct seed rounds with the support of the Seedrs team! Between an ever-growing repertoire of success stories and millions of dollars raised for startups, it comes as no surprise that the best and brightest startups trust Seedrs to facilitate funding rounds.
One of the many startups that have turned to Seedrs for conducting investment rounds is Thrillz. Founded by Anjan Luthra, former Private Equity and Venture Capital Investor at Partners Group London ($100bn Private Equity Fund), this 2020 startup has revolutionized how fans interact with celebrities by fostering genuine connections through custom videos, live events, and one-of-a-kind experiences.
Marked by impressive successes left and right, Thrillz’s first year was one for the history books. Along with being named one of the Best U.K. Startups in 2020 by Startup Pill, Thrillz can boast an exceptionally high Net Promoter Score at an astounding 82! In 2020 alone, Thrillz celebrity sign-ups grew by 1000%, and bookings grew by 2700%, all while revenue grew by an enormous 5000%! Despite 75% of sales being organic, Thrillz’s monthly revenue growth is an astonishing 175%.
Growth and revenue statistics are not Thrillz’s only recent remarkable successes. During Thrillz Pre-Seed investment round through Seedr, the company raised $700K from leading angel investors across Europe. Many of these angel investors are executives from leading Private Equity and Investment Bank firms, such as advisor James Faulds. James Faulds has chaired and exited several companies such as Wood Mackenzie and IPES. He currently advises Tier 1 Private Equity Funds, including Hg, Phoenix, and Partners Group.
James Faulds was not the only noteworthy name to support and join the Thrillz community; in 2020, Graeme Faulds joined Luthra as an advisor for Thrillz! Graeme Faulds is a founding partner of SL Capital Partners, one of the largest and most successful Private Equity Funds in the United Kingdom. Additionally, Graeme Faulds is the director of private equity solutions for eVestment, a Nasdaq division and home to the world’s most expansive database of traditional and alternative investment strategies.
Between Luthra, Graeme Faulds, and James Faulds, it is clear that Thrillz is a company of which the financial world expects great things. These expectations become easily understandable with the thousands of customers, fans, and five-star reviews Thrillz has accumulated. Luthra’s innovative platform clearly knows what it is doing when it comes to fostering authentic connections between celebrities and their fans while simultaneously building an internal community of industry leaders and entrepreneurial powerhouses!
Seedrs has an equally firm grasp on enticing these noteworthy investors, reaching funding goals, and helping forge the path to success for startups! In 2020, Seedrs provided £293 million ($330 million) to over 265 startups! Seedrs aims to allow “all types of investors to invest in businesses they believe in and share in their success, [and] enable all types of growth-focused businesses to raise capital and a community in the process.”
Out of all the successful companies that have conducted funding rounds through Seedrs, one of the most impressive by far is Thrillz. Despite there being 32 days still left in Thrillz’s current 35 day Seedrs campaign, Luthra’s platform has already reached 98% of its funding goal. There is no doubt that in a matter of hours, Thrillz will champion this latest funding goal. Luthra gives investors a seemingly never-ending amount of motivation to invest in his company; so, this outpouring of interest and enthusiasm to join the ranks of prestigious Thrillz investors is quite understandable.
Regardless of the many reasons Luthra gives the world to believe in his future success, and the already glowing track record of Thrillz accomplishments — the impressiveness of a company raising over half a million dollars in mere hours cannot possibly be overstated.
