On this episode of Investor Connect, Hall welcomes Philip Webb, Managing Director at Investors In Community Limited (IIC).
Headquartered in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, England, and founded in 2015, Investors In Community Limited is a for-profit company operating a B2B SaaS platform, providing businesses with the measurement and verification tool for all community support and giving. As social value becomes monetised by way of tender and supply chain requirements, investor expectations, staff attraction and retention, and customer choices based on perceived responsibility of the business supplier, it has become necessary to create an independent system to measure, manage, track, verify and report. Spreadsheets are no longer acceptable as a means to report authentic activity. IIC was written as a bespoke platform, using an IBM software house to create a hyper-ledger blockchain platform hosted with IBM. This provides robust, trusted, and scalable systems for ultimate overseas expansion.
Phil started his career working for IBM UK as a hardware specialist. He established a hardware/services business in 1990, growing to over £6.7M and selling on in 1996. Since set up, he has merged and sold 5 SME businesses in the areas of software development, training, and business consultancy.
In 1996, Phil was elected Chamber President, and in the same year, represented SME businesses in the CBI Regional Council.
Phil has published three business books, leading to university lecturing about rapid change management, and is the legal custodian of the research from the Stanford University of the SWOT Analysis.
Phil discusses how he sees the industry evolving and its growth rate, some of the challenges in starting a business in this space, and he explains community credits.
