Shoot Investor Event

We had a great afternoon yesterday at The Geffrye Museum where we held our first Investor Event. The sun was shining and the event was enjoyed by all. Nicola, Martin, Karl and Stuart gave detail on our first year’s goals, performance and plans for the future.

Some of the comments from those who attended were:
“A useful and informative update from the Shoot team on progress to date and strategy going forward.  The afternoon provided a great opportunity to meet with the new hires in the team and hear about Shoot’s plans for the future.  I only wish more crowdfunded businesses would take the time to engage fully with their investors and key clients.” Sara Halbard

We also had some very supportive members join us too such as garden designer Gillie Leaf who said:
“I was so pleased to attend the Investor Event yesterday so that I could meet the team and chat to other like minded people who love Shoot! I was especially encouraged to hear about all the good things that are planned for the next 18 months.”- Gillie Leaf Garden Design

We also had some investors who are also members join us such as Mark Somers. He commented

“It was great to meet Nicola and the team in person, to hear the real progress over the last year and see the structured proposal for the next 15 months or so. It was also a pleasure to meet and talk to co-investors both at an investor and gardener level. A great session overall and a pleasure to be involved. ” – Mark Somers

We also took advantage of the fantastic garden setting at the Geffrye Museum and fine weather to film some testimonial videos. We filmed 6 testimonial videos with members and investors.

Nicola Gammon visited the SGD Ealing cluster group to talk with them about the benefits of having a Professional membership with Shoot. Esra and her fellow Ealing garden designers were very welcoming to Nicola. The group thoroughly enjoyed the evening and gave some great suggestions and feedback. Karen Willoughby, Sue Creak and Kat Kekona also offered to follow-up interviews for our upcoming mobile web project. Esra further says about Shoot:
Not only is Shoot a fantastic resource for us as designers  but a veritable goldmine of information for our clients. The site has information about over 20,000 plants on their website including maintenance notes.  These can be tailored and emailed to your client once a month. Such a time saver. Shoot also links in with Vectorworks Landmark and they are constantly improving the functionality.
