The meteoric rise of the newest social networks is largely because of the work of creators rather than the network itself, which has many creators questioning the dependency on individual platforms. Creators spend countless hours developing content with little reward and face the constant risk of algorithm changes, policy shifts, bans, and monetization restrictions when they opt to build their followings on one of the popular social networks. Disciple Media is a SaaS platform that lets these individuals own the access to their audiences by allowing creators to build their own digital communities. The platform offers branded social spaces on the web, iOS, and Android that are easy to set up and maintain. Functions available include unlimited groups, messaging, push notifications, live streaming, and a host of monetization options including subscription, selling courses, and exclusive content. Disciple currently hosts over 2M users across 500 communities. London TechWatch caught up with CEO and Founder Benji Vaughan to learn more about how his own experience in the music business inspired the platform, the company’s strategic plans, and latest round of funding, which brings the total funding raised to $6.14M.

While COVID accelerated interest life insurance products, a large portion of the UK population still does not have coverage or is underinsured. COVID also accelerated our adoption of digital solutions as in-person activity came to a halt. Yet, 80% of life insurance products are sold offline through financial advisors. Anorak is an online life insurance advice platform that’s focused on making life insurance more accessible to consumers in a digital-first era. For years, there have been online solutions that allow you to type in a few inputs and receive quotes from a small portion of available options with very little personalization. Anorak goes beyond that by holistically understanding your financial situation and obligations in order to tailor independent recommendations for policies that will meet your needs. Anorak services interested consumers through its website and is also available through APIs for its partner ecosystem of digital financial service providers, broadening the scope of the market it can serve. London TechWatch caught up with CEO and Cofounder David Vanek to learn more about how the pandemic has presented the momentum for innovation in the life insurance industry, the company’s strategic plans, and latest round of funding from investors that include Outward VC, Triple Point Ventures, Kamet Ventures, Nic Kohler, Paul Evans, Charlie Delingpole, and Will Neale.
