InHaus secures investment from Exchange VC partner
InHaus has recently secured investment from the Exchange programme’s VC partner Solid Bond Capital.
InHaus, a fashion-tech business that uses technology and automation to help online fashion retailers create high-quality product videos, has received £300,000 in funding from multiple investors, including major investor Solid Bond Capital.
The business was founded on the sector experience of stylist Isabella Sumner, and international fashion photographer, Till Janz. They have come together to solve the problem that only 15% of retail products currently have a video alongside them on websites.
The team have developed software that provides a low-cost solution which removes many of the complexities of video creation for retailers. They can take their own videos of products using smartphones and then upload the raw footage to an automised, cloud-based editing programme.
Their relationship with Solid Bond Capital was born out of the Exchange programme earlier this year. Solid Bond Capital is a focused pre-seed investor, providing funding and support to start-ups. Since partnering with Exchange, they have invested £1m in member companies.
This investment is allowing InHaus to expand its team and commercialise its software. They are hiring more programmers, as well as impressively welcoming an expert from Berlin who is making the move to the UK to join the company. Growing the team is going to enable them to further sophisticate and develop the editing programme to finesse product videos.
The Exchange scheme goes well beyond providing a community and space to grow. It offers start-ups real access to VCs and other industry partners. Securing significant funding and forming these support partnerships in the early stages of a business’s development can be a real catalyst for future growth and success.
We look forward to seeing other members take advantage of the partnerships to the programme.
