Brizy.io raises £2m seed round from Fuel Ventures

Brizy.io, the startup behind a headless, multi-platform website builder today announced its first institutional fund raising round led by leading VC firm Fuel Ventures alongside a new on-premise website builder solution, Brizy Local.

What is Brizy?

Brizy is a leading headless SaaS website builder platform focusing on web professionals, agencies, and hosting providers. Platform agnostic, more than 400,000 projects have been built on Brizy to date. Brizy’s user base hails our intuitive UI for building beautiful websites, landing pages, pop-ups, and web-stories with ease. Thousands of resellers have discovered the power of Brizy’s whitelabel builder solution which is available for Wordpress, as a Cloud Solution, and as a Local Editor.

How does it work?

Businesses of all sizes now have access to a lightweight website building solution called Brizy Local. Brizy Local runs on the infrastructure of the client and is a tiny file that allows service providers to provision a website builder to their end users in any existing environment. In contrast to hosted/ cloud-type builders such as Brizy Cloud or Wix, or plugin-based website builders such as Brizy Wordpress or Elementor, Brizy Local is a tiny CMS that runs on the host’s server directly. That has a number of advantages such as extreme speed to publish projects as well as maintaining compliance such as GDPR of providers required to do so.

Furthermore, Brizy announced today that it raised a seed investment round led by Fuel Ventures, one of the UK’s most active VCs in the technology sector. “We have aggressive plans for growth over the next 18 months and are very proud to have Fuel on board as a partner now”, says Dimi Baitancuc, CEO of Brizy. “While we have been profitable since starting out in 2018, we are excited to accelerate our growth. As a product-first company, we will expand our team of developers, support staff and we will also bolster our marketing and sales team with the investment by Fuel. Lastly, we have started working on a 4th product line which we look to reveal in mid 2023”.

Mark Pearson on Brizy

“We receive several hundred investment proposals each month but only invest into 10-15 per year”, says Mark Pearson, Founder & Managing Partner at Fuel Ventures. “Deciding to invest into Brizy was easy. They have a world-class product, have a proven track record and business model, a strong team of founders and an exciting lineup of products in the pipeline. Even with the recent slowdown of VC activity we felt confident that Brizy will take the website builder market by storm!”.

Searchland raises £2.3m to help developers solve housing crisis with automation

Searchland, the next-generation platform for land sourcing, has raised £2.3m in seed funding from Fuel Ventures to help property developers build more homes. Having gained significant traction with developers since its launch last year, Searchland will use the funds to integrate additional datasets and further automate land sourcing processes so they can rapidly find, validate and acquire off market sites for development.

What is Searchland?

Searchland is the next-generation platform for land sourcing. By making developers data-driven and automating their most time-consuming processes, it allows them to find, validate and acquire high margin development opportunities ahead of their competitors. Searchland is driven by the belief that technology has an integral part to play in solving the housing crisis. Its digital tools transform the land sourcing process so developers can focus on what they do best - building more homes. Its customers include some of the country’s best-known property companies including Places for People, Galliford Try and Aster Group.

Why now?

Amid a scarcity of land for development in the UK and with property companies using over thirty data resources to assess the development potential of a site, the process of securing viable off market sites is a slow, fragmented and complex task. Faced with higher site and build costs, developers also now need to be more confident in their margins. All of these factors contribute to the lack of supply of new homes and ongoing housing crisis in the UK.

How did Searchland come about?

Searchland was founded by Mitchell Fasanya, previously co-founder and CTO of influencer marketing agency FanBytes (acquired by Brainlabs), land planner Hugh Gibbs, data scientist Arthur Goodhart and computer scientist Archie Kennedy-Dyson to turbo charge land sourcing processes and help developers build more homes. The proptech company has enjoyed significant traction since its launch last year thanks to its user-friendly, data-driven platform and automated processes.

“Having tried to find a site of my own to build on, I discovered there was very considerable friction in the land sourcing process’” comments co-founder and CEO Mitchell Fasanya “The property industry is rich in data but it wasn’t being leveraged effectively and developers were having to trawl through a myriad of clunky databases to track down the information they needed. While modern digital tools had emerged they failed to eradicate the industry’s antiquated processes and were prohibitively expensive for the majority of developers.”


By integrating the relevant data sets, Searchland has created a rich mosaic of the country’s property that provides developers with all the insights they need in a single click. Developers can instantly uncover sites that meet specific criteria including the percentage of undeveloped land, use class and building height, as well as review key information such as planning history, ownership and constraints - all without leaving the platform. The platform also features digital workflows for other admin-heavy tasks, such as sending letters of interest to land owners to explore their willingness to sell.

“In less than a year we’ve built the most sophisticated platform for land sourcing and we have a conversion rate of 70-80%. Ultimately we want to offload all of the admin heavy tasks for developers so they can focus on what they do best - building homes. This funding round will allow us to accelerate product development and advance further ahead of the competition,” continues Mitchell Fasanya.


“Searchland has created a very powerful and highly scalable product that is set to become the industry standard for land sourcing thanks to its customer-driven approach and pace of innovation. We were very impressed by the team and were keen to lead the current round with a significant ticket,” comments Mark Pearson, founder and managing partner at Fuel Ventures.


SearchLand was a participant in the Geovation Accelerator Programme in spring 2021 – a programme which provides geospatial and PropTech start-ups with grant funding and 12 months of support, backed by HM Land Registry and Ordnance Survey.

Aide Health secures $1.2m to help patients manage long-term conditions

Health-tech startup Aide Health has raised $1.2m in pre-seed funding led by Hambro Perks through its EIS fund, with participation from ourselves, 1818 Ventures and APX Ventures.

What is Aide?

Launched by co-founders Ian Wharton, CEO, and Brian Snyder, COO, Aide is a digital platform that helps patients and their clinicians better understand and manage long-term health conditions, currently affecting over 26 million people in the UK.

In 50% of cases, people struggle to follow the treatment as prescribed by their clinician, lowering their quality of life and placing added strain on the resources of the health service.

How does Aide work?

Aide provides clinicians with a platform to create and remotely monitor health plans for people with chronic disease, paired with a mobile app for the patient which acts as a co-pilot through their care. Using natural language, Aide has short, daily conversations to help with the day-to-day management of health conditions through medicines optimisation, structured monitoring and structured education.

What has been the progress so far?

The service is currently being used by the NHS, with a pilot launched earlier this year supporting people aged between 18-75 with asthma or type-2 diabetes. Aide has a specific focus on meeting the rising challenge of comorbidity and will soon be launching pathways for hypertension and chronic pain.

Ian Wharton, co-founder and CEO at Aide Health, says: “Like many people, I know first-hand the frustrations of trying to manage long-term conditions. Our goal is to give both patients and clinicians the tools and insights they need to have better conversations and make more informed treatment decisions together. The pilot in NHS England is our first step towards making Aide available to everyone with chronic illness.”


Alexander Breeden, Senior Investment Associate at Fuel Ventures, commented: “We are very much excited to be working with Ian and Brian. We believe Aide Health has the potential to be an extremely impactful tool both for clinicians and patients in managing long-term health conditions. Initially starting with asthma and type-2 diabetes, we expect the team to expand beyond these diseases and will as a result have a wide standing impact on chronic illnesses. Ian and Brian were a clear choice for us and we are thrilled to be part of their journey.”

Hammock, the UK property technology firm, announces a new partnership with Sage

As the introduction of Making Tax Digital for income tax self assessment draws closer to going live in April 2024, many accountants are bracing themselves for increased demand from landlord clients. This is why Hammock's new partnership with Sage, will enable Sage to provide a coherent solution for accountants to manage landlord clients’ tax and compliance needs.

More about Hammock

Founded in 2019, Hammock initially focused on selling to the landlord market. However, according to its founder and CEO Manoj Varsani, they soon received enquiries from accountants whose clients were using the tool, and the vendor’s stand was one of the most popular at last year’s AccountingWEB Live Expo.

Hammock was the recent recipient of a $5.5m funding round, and currently provides banking, bookkeeping, draft property tax statements and property performance insights to customers. Fuel Ventures initially provided investment back in 2020.

Although there is currently an integration between Hammock and Sage, the new partnership with Sage will allow accountants or landlords to review their tax return details and other financial information through Sage’s tax dashboard. It will also allow users to view tax estimates and file quarterly returns, end of period statements and final declarations under the new MTD ITSA regime directly through Sage software.

The partnership is available now and Sage accountants can sign up and access Hammock from the Sage for Accountants platform.

Flowla raises their pre-seed round with participation from Fuel Ventures and Antler

What is Flowla?

Flowla accelerates B2B sales Flowla helps B2B revenue teams create digital buying journeys that speed up cycles and win deals.

A Flowla link is a personalised, custom banded workflow for the buyer; centralising the buying experience from the first call until the onboarding. It hosts all resources & action plans, facilitates communication & collaboration.

In addition to delivering an outstanding experience to buyers, Flowla provides sellers a lens to what’s happening behind closed doors within the buying organisation. They view actionable insights on how prospects engage and identify every stakeholder.

What are the current issues facing B2B buyers and sellers?

•Too many moving parts, too little engagement
•80% of B2B buyers have stated their last purchase was too complex and difficult.

There are too many moving parts: Not only the number of stakeholders involved in the decision making has increased, the variety of resources have multiplied as well. To help buyers and facilitate the decision making process, salespeople rely on documents, videos, interactive demos, forms, electronic signatures, mutual action plans..

This results in:

•Countless hours wasted between email threads, links, attachments, spreadsheets and other 3rd party tools,
•Ghosting from prospects not engaged,
•Lack of alignment between stakeholders and deals stalling..

Flowla unifies the scattered buying experience in a single collaborative medium, helping sellers become better storytellers, engage buyers and speed up sales cycles.

Who are team Flowla?

Repeat, exited founders with substantial industry expertise

Flowla was founded in early 2022 by Erdem Gelal, Alper Yurder and Oguz Gelal.

Erdem, CTO, previously built an enterprise sales solution that digitalised offline sales processes, later exiting to Groupe UP in 2019.

Alper, CRO, has over a decade of experience building, growing and leading sales teams in multiple organisations (most recently at a post series-A start-up)

Oguz completes the founding team as CTO. An experienced lead full stack developer, with experience leading high-performing tech-teams (also most recently at a post series-A start-up).

This team is perfectly placed to build the de-facto medium where B2B sales happen in the future.

What does Fuel Ventures like about Flowa?

The market size, the ‘why now?’ and the ‘must-have’ factor are all hugely relevant here, but ultimately, it comes down to the team.

Led by a CEO who has previously exited a business in this very sector, along with a CRO who has lived and breathed B2B sales for over a decade and a CTO who has led teams at multiple successful tech companies. For us, the answer was obvious.

So if you want to wow your buyers, speed up sales cycles and close more deals - head to Flowla.

Frontdoor Labs raises $1 million pre-seed round

Frontdoor Labs has closed their USD 1 million pre-seed round, led by Signature Ventures, a German early stage venture capital fund alongside ourselves at Fuel Ventures. Frontdoor Labs is a global web3 talent network that is redefining how founders, operators and contributors connect across the web3 ecosystem.

Driven by the belief that most of the world’s best talent has yet to be unearthed, Co-founders Ash Prabaker & Yasama Rajaee started Frontdoor to build novel solutions to connect founders and operators across the web3 landscape. “Frontdoor was born out of the experiences both Yasaman and I felt as we started exploring web3 - we were left searching for better alternatives to existing talent solutions to help discover and build relationships with other builders in the ecosystem,” said Ash, Co-founder of Frontdoor, “We are changing the way organisations and individuals at large connect with talent in the professional world.”

What is Frontdoor?

Frontdoor is a global web3 talent network that helps connect founders, operators and contributors building in the web3 ecosystem through a combination of IRL spaces and software solutions. Frontdoor’s vision is to redefine how talent is discovered and connected on a global scale. Frontdoor is headquartered in London, which is also the site of its first community hub. Learn more about Frontdoor at frontdoor.xyz.

Today Frontdoor exists as a subscription-based talent collective of founders and operators building in the web3 ecosystem. By connecting curated talent through both in real life (IRL) and digital spaces - Frontdoor is able to foster real connection between people whilst avoiding the noise of the broader ecosystem. “We knew from personal experiences that both IRL and digital spaces are central to creating meaningful connections between people - we are creating an environment that feels intimate and makes it simpler to find who you wanted to, when you wanted to - a campus for web3 talent” - said Yasaman, Co-founder of Frontdoor.

Frontdoor recently launched their IRL hub in central London filled exclusively with web3 talent from the Frontdoor Community. Members can choose to either work permanently out of the space, drop in weekly or access the network through Frontdoor’s private digital spaces. “The quality of talent working here is second to none - great things happen when you bring together world-class operators working on the technological frontier,” mentioned Ash. “We’ve already sold out of spots for October and are moving into a larger space in November to welcome more talent into the network,” said Yasaman.

With the funding, Frontdoor will continue to scale its community and further evolve the decentralised software solutions that live at the heart of the network. “Connecting talent on a global scale is a natural next step for us. Our vision is to redefine how we think about discovering and connecting with talent - to help frictionlessly match individuals and opportunities in the future of work,” said Ash.

Applications for membership for November onwards are now open here: https://www.frontdoor.xyz/

Studiospace raises £1.5m seed round to accelerate growth

A company vowing to end the days of Mad Men and transform how marketing agencies are hired has raised £1.5m of funding from Fuel Ventures.

When was Studiospace started?

Founded in 2022 by Pete Sayburn, Gideon Hyde, Robin Scarborough, Phil Kohler and Paul Bowman, Studiospace is a tech platform used by major brands to find innovative new talent in the creative, marketing and digital spaces. Its clients include major brands such as Aviva, JLR and Gala Games.

What is Studiospace?

Studiospace connects major brands with independent, specialist agencies in the creative, digital and marketing arenas via its smart platform.

Founded by Pete Sayburn and team of serial entrepreneurs, the business has signed up major brands including Aviva, Jaguar Land Rover, Gala Games and AXA. It has also recruited over 100 independent agencies spread across 12 countries and 36 cities.

“We saw a chance to disrupt the marketing industry and went for it,” said Sayburn. "Big brands want new talent, but smaller indie businesses can’t cope with the admin and red tape that big brands demand from their suppliers. As a result, hiring agencies is still too ‘Don Draper’, with a beauty parade of well known names grabbing all the best briefs. This Mad Men era needs to come to an end and Studiospace has the tech to achieve that.”

The investment will be used to grow the business in the UK, and in Australia, where it has a growing office in Sydney, as well as to develop and further automate the Studiospace tech platform.

Senior and chief marketing officers (CMOs) use Studiospace to post briefs and criteria for new projects. The platform matches them to relevant suppliers, based on their choices.

Crucially, the company also provides standard contracts and terms of conditions as well as handling payments, removing the administrative issues which often prevent small companies from working with bigger brands.

Sayburn believes he is disrupting how the marketing industry works.

“Digital technology should mean a senior marketer can stipulate precisely what they want and then find the perfect match in a few clicks,” he said. "Yet, at the moment, that’s not happening as digital hasn’t yet transformed how agencies are hired. We are attempting to bridge the gap between the biggest brands and those small but exciting indie agencies which are full of talent and original ideas. We are now effectively the fastest growing marketing services company in the world, with 2000 people in our network after just eight months. This investment from Fuel will enable us to continue to grow.”

The view from Fuel

Shiv Patel, Investment Director at Fuel Ventures:

"Having seen StudioSpace's growth since they began trading at the start of this year, we were delighted to have the opportunity to invest in such an exciting business. The management team have exceptional experience both within the industry and also through having successfully scaled and exited a previous business. This coupled with the tier 1 enterprise clients they have using the platform already made a compelling investment case for us. We look forward to working closely with StudioSpace in the coming years to ensure the Company's continued success."

NVOR announces their pre seed round led by Fuel Ventures.

To coincide with the commercial release by NVOR Limited of their Ownership Beyond Doubt service, Fuel Ventures is pleased to finally announce that we completed and led their pre-seed round of £150k investment in Q1 2022, following earlier private investment received by the company in 2021.

The Ownership Beyond Doubt service from NVOR has launched today, providing a digital validation for vehicle ownership. The Ownership Beyond Doubt registration captures both the vehicle and the customer details along with any financial interest through a range of verification checks which are entered at the point of sale by a participating dealer, confirming and validating the true ownership of the vehicle.

What is NVOR?

The National Vehicle Owners Registry (NVOR) is a database registry providing certificate based validation of a vehicle’s ownership. The purpose of the registry is to protect car buyers, car dealers, finance providers and owners from potential fraud, misrepresentation and theft. In what seems long overdue in the industry first, NVOR brings together actual validation of both vehicle, finance and customer data through a range of verification checks which are validated in a number of ways to confirm true ownership of the asset.

Why now?

For over 100 years since the birth of the motor car, there is still ambiguity and confusion of who owns a vehicle in the U.K, with no ability until now, of validating the true ownership.

The Ownership Beyond Doubt service from NVOR has launched today, providing a digital validation for vehicle ownership. The Ownership Beyond Doubt registration captures both the vehicle and the customer details along with any financial interest through a range of verification checks which are entered at the point of sale by a participating dealer, confirming and validating the true ownership of the vehicle.

Backed by private investment and London based VC Fuel Ventures, Investor Principle, Tom Hibbard said “We see NVOR as the fourth missing piece in the vehicle data industry and are excited to be part of this new service.”

The Ownership Beyond Doubt service is not a replacement to a current V5c document, but provides the missing piece in the vehicle data marketplace - ‘the ownership’. It is widely taken for granted that the V5c registration document acts as a proof of ownership of a motor vehicle.

The name and address details on this document results in the assumption that you are the legal owner - this is not the case.

This new online service focuses on the ownership not the keeper/user whilst a quick and easy registration process allows the motor trade to register the true ownership of both new and used vehicles, protecting customers, motor traders, finance providers, auction houses and insurance companies from potential fraud and misrepresentation.

Co-Founder of NVOR, Sean Butcher said: “We consider the company to be the vanguard in collating this essential and important information in order to establish a national vehicle ownership register and provide an extra source of data security for the ever evolving online vehicle sales landscape within the automotive industry, enabling the consumer, finance and insurance sectors to seek clarity and protect their valuable assets. In addition our service will support a more enhanced digital experience for policing and enforcement purposes, enabling secure information and data sharing, in order to build a more credible and richer intelligence picture of vehicle ownership in the U.K”.


According to a recent study by CarGurus, 63% of UK car buyers are now open to buying their new or used vehicle online. For the majority of consumers, their vehicle is the next most expensive financial commitment second to their home, it therefore makes sense that there is a registration and validation solution and data capture service for this purpose. Once an owner and their vehicle are registered a digital certificate is issued to the customer to their registered email address and mobile which includes their account log-in details.

What is this business model?

NVOR charge a one time fee of £99.00 incl VAT for the registration and the digital ownership record remains with the owner until the vehicle is sold. By finally bringing together the necessary information required to digitally validate the ownership of a vehicle and provide an unmatched automotive service, our value added product finally demystifies the ownership of a vehicle and helps to enhance customer retention for the car dealer.

What are the benefits of NVOR?

    • Long-term benefit to consumer, car dealers finance and insurance companies security
    • One payment for the life of the ownership of the vehicle
    • Helps in the fight against vehicle finance fraud
    • Proof of ownership verified via 6 point validation system by a registered dealer when selling and buying a vehicle
    • Helps in the fight against misrepresentation
    • Added security data across all motoring sectors
