Having lit up the performances of some of the biggest names in music, Radical Lighting is now aiming to illuminate itself on the world stage.
To do that the Bradford-based company, which provided stage lighting for the Live 8 concerts in London and Paris, needs a cash injection. Radical provides lighting and video equipment to the live entertainment, leisure and architectural industries as well as the computer software needed to control the effects.
The company, which also provided the lighting for Coldplay's recent world tour and the Glastonbury Festival, will be hoping to win the required £175,000 of funding when its representatives pitch to an audience of international investors at Connect Yorkshire's summer Investment Forum tomorrow.Connect Yorkshire primes technology companies for investment through events such as the forum, which is sponsored by Partnership Investment Finance and is taking place at the Hilton Hotel in Leeds.
Twelve Yorkshire firms will pitch their business propositions to an audience of around 100 investors and advisers from organisations including Advent Ventures, Bank of Scotland Equity, Delta Partners, Doughty Hanson & Co, Herald Ventures and MMC Ventures.
Connect's executive director, Nick Butler, said: "The Investment Forum is a fantastic event that speeds up the investment process. It brings together Yorkshire's technology entrepreneurs and key national players in the investment community."
Other companies attending the event include IT security software firm Smoothwall; drug development software company Digital Chemistry; alternative energy generators Pulse Tidal; and York-based Medical Interactives, which has developed technology to improve the resolution of images produced from MRI and CT scans. Companies that have used Connect's services, including the Investment Forums, have received more than £13m in international backing.
