Welcome to the Deal Lite blog. We launched Deal Lite to 19 pre-paid customers on 1st April 2019 and launching this website on 8th April 2019. May be it’s worth sharing how all this started.
In June 2018, we started to collect investment news of UK technology companies. We immediately started sharing this data via a weekly newsletter. An example is shown below.
In June 2018, I blogged about “where does Manchester fit into the UK and European funding markets?“. In fact, 2018 saw Manchester and the North-West based tech companies attracting over £300 million of investment. Techcelerate captured over 700 tech investment deals of UK tech companies securing over £5.5 billion
So far this year, Techcelerate captured over £3 billion of investment going into UK technology companies.
Our subscribers started to request direct access to the data we captured and shared. We started thinking about developing a web application to facilitate their need.
By Jan 2019, I started to think about how to develop a web application to satisfy the needs of Weekly Deal News readers. I teamed up with one of my old team members of UnifiedVU to develop the Minimum Viable Product (MVP) of Deal Lite and launch it by 1st April 2019.
We achieved this milestone as planned and launched Deal Lite to 19 pre-paid customers on 1st April 2019.
