We were first introduced to Alex and Rob at an event in London and had multiple meeting with the team before investing.
Scribeless has developed a software that can learn anyone’s handwriting and robotics that re-create the idiosyncrasies and nuances of human writing.
Alex Robinson (CEO) has had previous experience as a data scientist at J.P. Morgan as well as being a former CTO at LivePrize.
Rob VDB (COO) has been involved in a number of start-ups before starting Scribeless
We were really impressed with the founding teams prior experience (having built and sold a company to Twitter) as well as their passion and drive to deliver a solution that will change live content delivery worldwide. The road to achieving their ambitions will be challenging, as with any startup.
The company has sent over 100,000+ letters and has the likes of Diageo, NatWest and Panasonic as clients. They have also seen a lot of success implementing a Shopify plugin that enables e-commerce sites to use their notes easily for marketing purposes.
With a huge struggle to appear authentic when marketing your brand, personalisation goes a long way, just take a look at the man who built a £1bn business off writing handwritten letters. The team at Scribeless have brought back what so many people have missed out on as one of the best communication and engagement tools around.
With 95%+ open rates, 35%+ engagement rates and a huge element of personalisation. Scribeless is making it accessible for brands, bankers and business owners to access a unique customisation tool at a scale not previously possible. £4.4bn is currently spent annually on advertising and business direct mail, with over £10bn also spent on greeting cards annually.
Through Scirbeless, a unique low cost opportunity for marketers has emerged, offering higher levels of engagement and personalisation.
RLC Ventures has led a £420k with participation from Super-Seed Ventures and Ascension Ventures and a number of notable angels also committing to the round.
Alex has yet to select his Charity.
