Stuart McDonagh - Co-Founder, RoaRi

Stuart Rex - Founder, OMNI Money Solutions
“I am a distiller of award-winning gins that are stocked in places like Harrods, but I know little about the funding paperwork and requirements. FC helped me to efficiently produce my funding paperwork in 2 days and I got SEIS advance assurance in less than two weeks.”
Pete Lumber - Master Distiller and Founder, Lumber Distillers Limited
“Prior to working with FounderCatalyst, we had conducted the legalities of our first funding round via accountants and lawyers and found a real disconnect between the two. We reached out to FounderCatalyst for round 2 and couldn’t be happier with the service. They are on hand to personally deal with any requests or questions - there is a real accountability of the full process and depth of knowledge that you’re able to leverage. We would not go elsewhere for another round.”
Jake Hardy - Founder, Sokito
“I am doing a funding round using another legal paperwork provider but hit an issue with our SEIS/EIS advance assurance being queried. I wasn’t entirely confident in the proposed response to HMRC and someone recommended I speak to the FC team. They helped me to improve my response and their support led to a positive response. Amazingly helpful and knowledgeable team, even for someone who wasn’t a customer. I've recommended them to colleagues already and will be switching to FC for our next round!”
Nicola Telford - CEO & Co-Founder, Views For Change
“All I can say is ‘WOW!’, the FounderCatalyst team provided copious assistance to prepare my SEIS and EIS advance assurance submission. HMRC replied the very next day with our advance assurance”
