MMC Ventures


MMC invest money from high net worth individuals under EIS, but are long established with a wide base of funding, making them effectively an institutional investor. They are London-based but do have one investment in the North West. They become interested in a company once it has reached an “inflexion point” where sales become regular and start to accelerate.

Example companies


StoryStream

The StoryStream technology allows marketers to utilise real-time curation and analytics tools to seamlessly push relevant and personalised content across any customer channel. Storystream has won several important clients, including Volvo, Thomas Cook and Porsche.

Why they invested

“The complexity of managing content has increased dramatically over the last few years. Brands now have to create and manage a lot more content of their own, and make sure they are getting the most from the content their customers are creating. “At the same time, they need to interact with their customers across many more channels. StoryStream reduces this complexity and in doing so allows brands to tell more engaging and authentic stories. We have been very impressed by what Alex and Neil have built together and we are excited to invest and to help them realise StoryStream’s potential.”

Bloom & Wild

A mobile and online florist with a fresh approach to sending flowers. Their aim is to make sending flowers as simple as sending a text message, and receiving them as easy as receiving a letter.

Why they invested

“We’ve been particularly impressed with the approach they have taken to applying technology to creating a perfect gift experience for flower lovers. The MMC team have significant experience in supporting and helping to scale on-demand businesses, so we’re excited to start working closely with the team over the coming months.”

Reevoo

Reevoo helps brands turn the voice of the customer into business value through independently collected user generated content.

Why they invested

“This investment round is testament to what Jonathan and the team have achieved over the past 12 months and will help them solidify their market leading position. Reevoo’s metrics are best in class and we’re super excited about their product innovation plans”
