Harrison Clark Rickerbys advises Channel Mum on £3m venture capital funding

Corporate experts at Harrison Clark Rickerbys advised Channel Mum Ltd and its founder, Siobhan Freegard, on a £3m venture capital investment by investors Downing LLP and NVM Private Equity LLP. Channel Mum is an award-winning online vlogging community for parents, with a clear ambition to be the leading video-based parenting platform.

Rachel Turner, partner and head of the firm’s corporate team in the Thames Valley, led the HCR team, assisted by corporate solicitor Emily Beere.

Rachel said: “The timescale for completion was very ambitious, taking into account the long Easter break and the number of interested parties involved, but we are very pleased to have been part of an overall team of advisers and clients which was very focused on getting the deal done.

“It’s been great working with Siobhan and the Channel Mum team again, particularly as they are just about to enter a really exciting phase of growth and development with Downing and NVM firmly on board for the future.”

Siobhan Freegard, CEO of Channel Mum, said “We are delighted that Downing LLP have joined us and we look forward to working closely with them and our existing investors to drive Channel Mum forward. Rachel’s team at HCR were invaluable in getting this round of investment through in the timescales set and in managing the process so that we could focus on running the business.”
