Global investment platform Wholesale Investor's major global event returns to the UK with a new hybrid in-person/virtual format on the 28th of March 2022 at One Moorgate Place, London.
Annual Emergence events have spanned nine countries and 12 cities over five years, connecting innovative companies with angel, accredited and institutional investors and enabling both parties to assemble, create opportunities and increase worldwide awareness.
Emergence took a two-year hiatus from in-person events due to COVID restrictions and is now returning to face to face for 2022 with an upcoming London event which attendees can also attend virtually. Over 5,000 attendees are expected worldwide, and 600+ registered to attend in person.
30 exponentially innovative companies have been selected to showcase at this year's event, including pioneering urban Digital Twin company Cityzenith, blockchain-based ecosystem company Cashero, and drug delivery biotech company Anastasis, among many other upcoming and leading innovators within high-growth technology sectors.
"For 2022, we will get to return to face-to-face, in-person Emergence investor events where investors and innovators are brought together in the same room," says Wholesale Investor Co-Founder and Managing Director Steve Torso. "We play a small role, but it's an important role, all founders want is for someone to slightly open a door to an introduction – for us, that can change the trajectory of our business."
Wholesale Investor events have helped similar companies collate $187 million of capital over the last four years alone, presenting to over 29,000 high net worth investors and investment groups.
Long Pipes Limited, who developed the Fluid Highway, a seamless, continuous, composite pipeline for offshore and onshore operations over any terrain and long distances, raised $32 million through Emergence investor events, while Australian online bookstore Booktopia raised $20 million.
Tony Nash, CEO at Booktopia, said: "You never know when a conversation will lead to something. It was a conversation at the back of the room that led to a meeting, that led to a change of thinking, that led to an introduction, that led to a plan, that led to a 5-month process to $20 million."
CEO of Emergence UK 22 showcasing company Cityzenith Michael Jansen said: "As a company seeking to further grow our investor community, it's brilliant investors have this opportunity at Emergence 22 in London to interact with pioneering innovators. We've raised nearly $14 million since inception, and $5 million of this has been raised as part of our $20 million current investment offering. We already have a lot of current investors from the UK, and we look forward to increasing that based on our presence at Emergence 2022 in London."
Sector thought leaders and innovators will also be speaking, debating, and participating in Q&A sessions to share top calibre insights on sector/stage-specific education, investment themes, and future trends. Speakers include US internet serial Entrepreneur Jason Calacanis, Investment Manager for Tokentus Mona Tiesler, and the UK president of the Government Blockchain Association, Priya Guliani.
