Testimonials

What our
clients say

Alena Golden headshot

Notwics has been of a great support to our business. Chris tremendously accelerated our fundraise process. We’ve been oversubscribed for our SEIS round within less than 2 months. Chris has a great mind and a big soul, he is very supportive to founders. The collaboration with Notwics has been transparent and very productive. We look forward to the future collaboration with Chris and his team.

We worked with Chris and Notwics in 2020 to help us successfully raise seed capital for Good On You. They gave us incredible exposure to the UK Angel and Tech ecosystem, through the digital platform and also through their connections to the press. In particular we received a lot of interest from a Maddyness UK editorial that the Notwics team set in motion. As a Aussie startup, it would’ve been near impossible for us to navigate the UK investor scene in such a short period of time without access to the Notwics platform.

“Thanks for all your work, to raise such a number through Covid is remarkable really.

Now we need to spend it sensibly!!!”

“Lots of people can talk the talk but don’t walk the walk when it comes to helping companies raise investment, Chris is one of the rare people who does walk the walk. We’ve worked with Chris on two occasions and both times he has delivered. Also helps that Chris is a wonderful person to work with, top guy. 5 stars from myself and the Hiyacar team.”

We worked with Chris and Notwics in the summer of 2018 and they did a great job for us. The approach is refreshing, transparent and effective. Chris and his team quickly understood our business and connected us to some super smart money angels, that have become loyal shareholders and also, through their excellent pitch events, helped us get on to the radars of some extremely important VC’s and influential people in Tech.
They are a well wired, experienced, clever and exciting group of people to work with and we highly recommend to help, building any early stage founder’s investor outreach and IR campaign

Chris and the Notwics team are genuine, driven, humble, and most importantly, they have brilliant experience and credibility in the startup ecosystem. The level of service and attention to detail has been incredibly helpful for us – would recommend any company looking to raise funding. It’s been a breath of fresh air when it comes to startup advisors and pitching events. Big thanks!

‘I feel privileged to have met and worked with Chris and the NOTWICS community. Chris is a refreshingly authentic person to work with, with a deep expertise in fundraising and start-ups. The NOTWICS team have a strong network, that has introduced us to ’smart money’ investors that helped us to close our round significantly overfunded. We’ll look forward to NOTWICS consulting us on our next round’

“NOTWICS is that rare breed: an investor introductory service that not only actually introduces you to genuine investors, but stays committed to the start-ups he/it* has backed and sees the process through to the end. The events are great, too! Highly recommended!”

James Flint

It was an absolute pleasure working with NOTWICS. The pitch event was extremely professional and resulted in multiple individuals investing in our seed round. It was a real breathe of fresh air to work with Chris whose approach to fundraising is second to none. I highly recommend his service to anyone looking to raise investment

What I like is the flexibility; the way in which NOTWICS personally get to know the Angels and push to them opportunities that you know might interest them. Certainly, this is part of the “qualified Deal-Flow” but somehow goes beyond.

NOTWICS understand what VCs are looking for and have astute observations to make about both industry events and early stage businesses. The NOTWICS connections in industry are wide-reaching, and through the update emails they report accurately and unbiasedly on a far larger number of events than an individual VC could reasonably attend. This means that, with their help, we have insight into events we couldn’t attend and are able to maintain a more complete high-level view of the London(/European) VC market.

I was tiring of the whole advisory space for start-ups. Then along came Chris & Cam at NOTWICS – who are like a breath of fresh air. Knowledgeable, helpful, experienced and very well connected to the leading players in this space. A cut above the rest

Just wanted to say thanks for tonight. I thought the event was brilliant – super well run and really nice and engaged attendees. Nice venue too. One of the better “investing/pitching/start up” events I have been to, plus yesterday’s PREP session was genuinely really helpful and very nice to meet some friendly faces (the other start ups) before the fire.

We have enjoyed working with Chris and the team at NOTWICS very much. He’s a great guy, bags of energy, relentless work ethic, and comes highly recommended. NOTWICS does exactly what it says on the tin – thank you for the positive impact you have had on our business.

Chris is kind of a big deal. He’s too humble to say that, but it’s true. I’ve enjoyed working alongside him since day 1 and he’s quickly become an invaluable member of the team. Worth his weight in term sheets.

Working with Chris at NOTWICS has been a thoroughly rewarding experience. Chris is one of the best connected people in the start-up/scale-up scene. Having him in your corner makes a real difference.

Chris has helped open the doors of many leading, established VC’s & High Net Worth in London & Scandinavia, who invest in FINTECH or CREDIT. He also networked us strongly into the LONDON FINTECH scene very effectively enabling us to meet & get close to LENDINVEST, REVOLUT & others.

Within just 6 weeks of presenting at NOTWICS 16, SafeToNet raised over £500k from 15 investors. It was a game-changing moment for our Company. We cannot recommend NOTWICS more highly.

Super impressed with Chris and his knowledge of the ecosystem. He has genuine access to a wide network of Angels and VC’s. Many of which trust him to be their filter. There are a lot of charlatans out there offering Investor Relations for a slice, but I’m very happy to say that my experience has been nothing but positive with NOTWICS so far

Chris helped us raise funding, making introductions to Angel investors and VC’s. The process was fast and the meetings were highly qualified. If we raise money again, the first person I’ll call will be Chris.

Partnering with NOTWICS was a great move; we closed our round faster than expected with the support and advice we receives. Chris offers a much more personal and effective service than what I’ve experienced elsewhere. No nonsense, no messing about – we got straight to the point and very quickly had a small number of high quality conversations, which delivered.
