Emily Forbes, Founder, Seenit

After having the initial idea when creating her own documentary, she pitched and won backing from specialist B2B brand accelerator Collider. Seenit subsequently became part of the BBC Worldwide Labs programme and later took office space at Idea London - the incubator sponsored by UCL, Cisco and DC Thomson. The company has recently won further backing from London-based angel syndicates including Force Over Mass. Today they’ve grown to a team of 16 and are based in Soho. 

Inspired by other London media-tech success stories such as Unruly, Seenit is rapidly growing revenues and gathering major brand clients such as the BBC, Benefit, The Body Shop, BT Sport and Red Bull Racing.
