Congratulations to the 4 companies selected by HBS Alumni Angels of London.

Jonathan Moshinsky and Mike Sterling from Stitch will present their retention platform and app that manages and retains participants in clinical trials.

Next, we have an HealthTech startup built by a female founder, Silja Litvin. eQuoo – The Emotional Fitness Game is the only game that has been accepted into the NHS App Library, harnessing the brain’s reward system to keep people motivated to learn the critical skills they need to process emotional and mental stressors.

The impressive Joseph Williams ♿️🏳️‍🌈 and Cayelan Mendoza will present Clu, an inclusive recruitment platform with an anchor in social impact, helping companies close critical skills gaps by hiring from skilled but underutilised talent pools.

Finally, Extend Robotics, an immersive human-robot interface with software allowing a user with consumer VR equipment to control a robot remotely via the Internet led by Chang Liu, will close the evening.



HBS Angels pitch events are interactive, and there is the opportunity to network with other angel investors, venture capitalists, entrepreneurs, experienced early-stage partners, and HBS alumni.

This event is open to all, as part of our mission to add value to the broader business and entrepreneurial community in the UK.

In order to comply with UK legislation you must certify that you are a self-certified high net worth or sophisticated investor to attend all HBS Angels pitch events.

On behalf of the HBS Angels Board, thank you for your interest in HBS Angels, and we look forward to seeing you on 15 June 2022.
