Startup Insights – ACG In conversation with Developing Experts

Updated: Jan 23, 2023

In the latest episode of our Start-up Insights series we caught up with ACG portfolio company Developing Experts CEO, Sarah Mintey MBE. Sarah gave us a fascinating insight into how Developing Experts started, her early experiences in raising funding and their exciting plans for the future.

Developing Experts first came to Anglia Capital Group in 2017 seeking investment into their educational software-as-a-service, online science lesson business. Developing Experts specialises in building software which provides lesson plans and resources to support teachers covering unfamiliar subjects.

“Pitching to the Angels from Anglia Capital Group was a fantastic experience and gaining that early stage funding and advice was vital to enable us to successfully grow the business.” Sarah Mintey MBE, Founder, Developing Experts.

After receiving over £1million from ACG’s network of investors and the added support benefits that Angels can bring to a business, Developing Experts have seen huge success. The platform is now recognised by teachers on EdTech Impact’s review platform as their ‘Best Rated Primary School Science resource’ in the UK. Its digital platform provides more than 1000 science curriculum lessons for primary and secondary schools combined with a careers and recruitment forum for both young people and their families and carers. The platform is designed to build diversity in the workplace for young people, parents, carers, and job seekers, by responding to employer needs as well as local and central government campaigns.

Anglia Capital Group has an incredibly strong portfolio of successful companies. We are proud to say that we have only had two failures to date in a 42-company portfolio which is testament to our robust screening process. We offer prospective Angels the chance to attend one of our live pitching events.
