Smash, a London, UK-based content creation platform which connects film and TV content creators with decision-makers, is raising £500k in funding.
Smash has already secured an initial ‘six figure sum’ from an Advance Share Subscription, which included investment from Investing Women Angels (IWA) and other existing investors. It will extend the fundraise to additional investors in the new year.
The company intends to use the funds to scale up its business as it targets the global content streaming market.
Co-founded by experienced content creators Fiona Gillies and Christine Hartland who joined forces with Mahesh Ramachandra, a digital product specialist, Smash provides content creators with free-to-access digital tools to create pitches aimed at commissioners and other decision-makers within the film and TV industry amid increasing demand for high quality content. With its current focus on the film and TV industry, the company is also aiming to expand the use of its technology into the games, web and music video sectors.
