USIO - An AI driven energy company offering savings to customers by tailoring their energy purchasing to the consumers habits, leveraging new regulations that allow for buying half-hour chunks. Over £4.5M annualised turn-over, solid reviews on TrustPilot from their existing customer-base. Pitch-deck claims break-even within 12 months.
They’re asking for £400,003, in return for 8.18%. Seems like a very reasonable valuation for what they offer - but curious to hear input from others who might have more sector specific knowledge, which might lead to me increasing my stake.

This one I simply do not get, but having seen the spirited debate here relating to Netflix, perhaps someone can point out an angle I’m missing.
On the surface, it just baffles me that this campaign has any legs at all. For anyone with an interest in the world of stand-up, you should know that “the Netflix of stand-up” is a ridiculous statement. Netflix is the Netflix of standup. It has a huge library of comedy specials, and has become the go-to place for virtually every comedian with a significant following.
Am I missing something? Is it just a case that the marketshare of Netflix isn’t so huge that there isn’t space for a speciality streaming platform with a narrower - but cheaper - offering?
