"We are operating in an extremely fast-moving environment and we need access to good advice and financial backing to continue our phenomenal growth to date. We were very happy to work with Restoration Partners and their Alpha Angels Network to secure such a positive outcome."
Mike Kennedy, Managing Partner of Restoration Partners, added:
"We Are Briqs is an excellent example of the type of company we enjoy working with - innovative and entrepreneurial with a strategy and products that investors are interested in. Although the environment for fundraising for start-up and early-stage companies remains challenging, we believe that the opportunities are there for the right type of company."
