Bodii is an early stage health tech company that uses technology to help physiotherapy patients recover from injuries in an insightful, engaging and empowering manner. We are focused on complementing the recovery journey by allowing patients to use the Bodii Flex, a range of motion wearable to measure their marginal gains at home. There are extremely high barriers for patients in the industry presently with wait times averaging close to two months and the highly unsustainable cost of private care at approximately £40-60 per 30min session.

Based on decades of experience, we help companies become more profitable by:
– ensuring that they have a clear marketing strategy, that is created to support the plans of the business
– sharpening their proposition so that it is compelling for the target audiences
– agreeing who the target audiences really are
– finding the most effective ways to engage with the target audiences.
It is an approach that works. For some clients we even act as a part time marketing director.
And … we know the EIS marketplace very well!!
Bure Valley Group is the private investor network and EIS platform that allows you to follow the lead of experienced investors into early-stage companies. All our opportunities are funded to a minimum of 30% before they appear on the platform, meaning an investment has serious backing before you commit. We understand EIS is an exciting concept, but we also understand the importance of putting the investors’ interests and compliance at the core of the activity. Extensive due diligence is carried out by the team; valuations and entrepreneurs are questioned in depth; and opportunities scrutinised before we seek firm commitments to fund a significant proportion of a target fund-raise, by our existing investor network. Once these commitments are in place, our platform allows every-day investors to invest directly into these pre-vetted, early-stage companies and SMEs. Shadow Founder’s ability to call on an established network of business angels and other professional investors, including family offices, venture capital and other authorised financial institutions, to commit to an opportunity before it is presented on the platform, provides comfort for investors.
