We pride ourselves at ClearlySo for working with some of the most trailblazing entrepreneurs, businesses and investors in the UK. We are excited that the ClearlySo Angels has also been recognised for its contribution to the investment space, being shortlisted for ‘Co-Investment Deal of the Year’ for investment in We Are Digital. The other clients shortlisted this year are LettUs Grow (Best Investment in Disruptive Tech), for its aeroponic irrigation and control technology for indoor vertical farming, and School Space co-founder Jemma Phibbs (Best High-Growth Woman Founder).

Arti Bareja, head of investor relations at ClearlySo, commented: “We are excited that ClearlySo and three of our clients were selected as finalists for the UKBAA awards. This is a true testament to the calibre of impactful and commercial businesses we work with, and the individual and institutional investors in the ClearlySo network that have enabled them to scale their operations and impact.”

Jemma Phibbs, co-founder of School Space, commented: “I am so delighted that our hard work to grow our school partnerships and further fight the education funding cuts is being recognised in this way! It is a brilliant recognition of the female leadership which is strong throughout our organisation.”
