Over 90 children a year die in house fires, so when BankToTheFuture.com were introduced to entrepreneur, Derek Wilson, they were keen to encourage investors to watch Derek’s pitch and potentially be part of saving the lives of children by financing Life Light. By helping Derek bring this unique invention to the market, this product could prevent the number of children who die in house fires every month. The company, set up by entrepreneur Derek Wilson, produces Life Light; a high intensity LED with software that listens for the sound of a home’s smoke alarm and turns on automatically which easily fixes onto a child’s bedroom door frame. BankToTheFuture.com is a hybrid crowdfunding platform which offers the opportunity to contribute and invest in startup and mature businesses. Simon Dixon, CEO of BankToTheFuture.com is an ex investment banker turned bank lobbyist who went on to launch a crowdfunding platform says “BankToTheFuture.com provides the future of banking, raising finance for SME’s or business and investing in private companies.” Simon goes on to say “Pitches such as Derek’s really deserve the finance from investors. We provide the platform that allows individuals to be part of something amazing; and in this case, life saving” Having looked at several crowdfunding models, Derek chose BankToTheFuture.com because he appreciated the company’s honest and transparent approach to raising money. After deciding to make 30% of his business available to investors and setting a minimum target of £50,000, Derek uploaded his pitch to BankToTheFuture.com. Derek was looking to raise the necessary finance to boost production levels of this innovative, life-saving product and enjoy economies of scale. Derek says “BankToTheFuture.com gave me access to funding that was simply unavailable anywhere else. With high street banks reluctant to support business start-ups like Life Light, I am convinced that without BankToTheFuture.com we would still be struggling to achieve the success our product deserves.” Described by Graham Stagg, Chief Fire Officer of Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service, as “the Fire Fighters' North Star, providing dependable navigation to the places that matter most, when it matters most" Life Light is one product set to set the market alight. Its built-in software is designed to respond instantly if a smoke alarm is triggered. The intensity strobe light enables the emergency services to identify and prioritise inhabited rooms. Through BankToFuture.com, Derek is hoping to raise £100,000. This will allow Derek to manufacture Life Light on a large scale, enabling him to approach the large multiples to stock and sell the products throughout the UK and globally.
