London breweries oozing with history, cutting-edge renewable energy specialists and gourmet dips full of flavour.
All exciting businesses which couldn’t be more diverse.
Yet, they all have one thing in common, they’re all MarketInvoice customers.
We’re proud to fund such a broad range of businesses whose products and services are constantly transforming their industries and impressing their loyal customers.
To celebrate our ever-innovating customers, we’ve decided to create a new feature on our blog, ‘3 things we love this week.’
Three things we’re excited about. Three things that really caught our attention and of course three things that we naturally wanted to share with you.
So take a read of what we’ve been getting excited about this week.
The UK design industry is world renowned but there’s a difference between cutting edge functional design and novelty overpriced gadgets.
Cue 2tech, an online sourcer, importer and distributer of gifts, gadgets and homeware with exacting standards and exquisite taste.
So why do we love them?
They pride themselves on being a solutions based site, with only a select portfolio of quality products. We think this makes them a cut above the rest. An online haven for consumers searching for cool, quality and affordable items.
The site boasts a variety of unique brands of chic gadgets and gizmos, from Ole Jenson, beautifully curved yet simple kitchenware, to Click and Grow, smart pots harnessing smart technology to provide exact doses of fertiliser and water for a range of plants, from strawberries to basil.
One product that’s a favourite with their customers, is the PowerCube.
A fresh take on the traditional power socket, this innovative new product is a perfect example of how 2tech provides a perfect platform for innovative new brands producing useful, well-designed products. The cube is an evolution of the extension cord – refreshed and sympathetic to the eco needs of consumers. The product’s simple building block aesthetic provides power through a much more flexible design. There’s also a built in remote control which uses kinetic energy – no batteries needed! Conserving unnecessary ‘standby’ energy in the office at the end of a long day can be done at the a click of a button.
Now 12 years old the brand has created an elite and desirable portfolio of must have household items that look great too!
Over 23 million members. Over 193 countries.
From these figures, it’s hard to believe that 13 years ago this community network dedicated to travel was simply an idea, discussed over a pint by two friends.
Social platforms have increasingly evolved with technology, now providing us with diverse ways to communicate on all manner of topics. The gap in this online social market for adventure seekers didn’t go unnoticed by founders Pete Ward and Jerome Touze – they created a community to share their discoveries and aid further exploration.
WAYN.com – ‘where are you now’ – was born.
Diving into this beautifully intuitive website, it’s clear to see why it has so many members. Scrolling down the home page, the reader is greeted with tips from users across the globe and natural travel snaps uploaded by its’ members (a refreshing break from the ‘Photoshopped’ glossy imagery so often seen on such sites). You can even leave a restaurant suggestion for a fellow explorer in your local area. Valuable information presented in an easily digestible format.
‘Discover destinations,’ is a nice touch for the unfussy adventure seeker, with suggestions in countries that are perhaps less obvious choices, aching to be explored.
For those who have a specific destination in mind, the website offers extensive information that the user can put their trust in. Typing ‘Barbados’ into the search bar, WAYN.com quickly offers a wealth of information. Infographics show the current weather (really hot apparently, lucky for some!), average temperature each month and how many members have been there. With a scroll of the mouse you can search for hotels, read dozens of recommendations and view stunning shots of your chosen getaway.
Other general features we love include the ability to meet people with similar travel desires and share ideas. Tell others your opinion on your latest adventure or even book a trip hand-picked by an insider. Not forgetting that all of this content is also available on the must-have WAYN.com app for access on-the-go.
Finding recommendations and reassurance is an important part of travelling, even for an intrepid explorer. This site installs confidence in plans and builds excitement for the trip ahead.
If you’ve got the travel bug, this is your perfect companion.
The London Clubhouse
First impressions are important.
So, if you’re looking for an inspiring location oozing with luxury, which is also ready to nurture a productive working environment, then look no further.
The Clubhouse, based in London’s Mayfair, is a refreshing and flexible way for companies to do business. An attractive location for client meetings as well as a productive, yet stylish workspace, are a necessity for most small businesses – but the capital isn’t always affordable.
What we love is that The Clubhouse offers an affordable alternative for these businesses, whatever their budget or purpose for the space.
With membership to suit all needs, their facilities include meeting rooms, hot desks and event spaces – not forgetting the gorgeous Clublounge for those more casual meetings. As well as these necessities, simple touches like changing rooms, charging points and privacy booths, show a commitment to providing customers a smart but practical working environment.
A touch of quality is the perfect way to describe this business club, the on-hand staff are a class act, there to make everything run as smoothly as possible.
Besides this, one of the most impressive things about The Clubhouse is its’ stunning and tasteful interiors. Set in a crisp, warm environment, accompanied by striking furniture and wallpaper, this location certainly has the wow-factor, sure to impress any clients.
Already making an impression on big companies such as the BBC, Tesla and Samsung, The Clubhouse is a wonderful choice of venue. Whether it’s a one-off meeting, launch event or just those regular meetings where the local coffee shop won’t do, it’s perfect for all business occasions.
The three exciting companies above are all MarketInvoice customers. To find out more about what they do, make sure to check out their websites!
