Subscription Video Channel - backed by MGM and voted Apple's 'App of the Day'
Backed by the former President of MGM Worldwide and PWC's Alternative Investment Arm, NextUp is a subscription video channel specialising in live stand-up comedy specials that fills the huge void left by the decline of DVD market. Awarded ‘App of the Day’ by Apple, for fans - we offer a comprehensive catch-up and discovery platform of the shows they would have otherwise missed, and for comedians - we preserve, showcase and monetise their work worldwide.

We're currently raising investment to allow us to maximise our first mover advantage in a £15bn subscription video market that's fast fragmenting into specialist genres - there's HayU for reality, Shudder for horror and we're currently the only platform specialising in live comedy so we have a great first mover advantage.

Since launching in beta two years ago, we’ve developed the product and business, achieving the following traction:
- Apple's 'App of the Day'
- 2,300 subscribers achieved with minimal marketing
- £120k YTD revenue
- Churn of just 7% and 65% free trial conversion rate
- Featured in Digital TV Europe's 'Hotlist' alongside ESPN+
- Content deals done with Virgin Atlantic, BBC and Audible
- Invited onto Amazon Channels UK & US

We’re raising £615k EIS at a £2m pre-money valuation, with £200k still available. This will allow us to gear up for Series A investment in 2019, and our planned exit in 2022 at a 10x multiplier.

Latest update: £1m has been committed by NextUp's current investors Velocity in March 2019 at a ~£3.5m valuation - a 35% uplift from this current round (which is still required to maintain momentum ahead of March).
