Invest in the future economy with ELEMENTARYb

At Eb we have built a strong and resilient company, a diverse team of experts and an innovative, intuitive, and the ingenious platform Sherloc to support British enterprises of all sizes as they grow.

Combined with our leadership’s own experiences in building successful businesses, we have studied our SME target market comprehensively, the communities they operate in and the challenges they face. So we understand the pain points of CFOs and wider C -suite executives as they run enterprises operating in a digital, globalised economy.

Eb meets specific, widespread and enduring needs

In short, we want to make life easier, more efficient and more profitable for the SMEs that are so important to the UK economy.

SMEs rely on a network of specialist advisers and service providers to support them. Often, this includes an array of different systems spanning banking, payment, accounting and other management platforms which they must navigate between, to keep close control over their operations and capital – the lifeblood of their businesses. This multiple-system approach is cumbersome, time-consuming and wasteful, costing up to 5% of a typical SME’s overall costs*.

The solution is Sherloc

Sherloc by Eb has been designed specifically with SMEs in mind and is being refined working closely with businesses out in the real world, to give them exactly the data and functionality they need to thrive, as well as the peace of mind to know that they can track all their vital components in one (consolidated) place.

Our working capital solution gives SMEs total, immediate control of their financial futures, whilst keeping administration costs down.

Using bespoke, integrated software, our intelligent platform optimises and supports timely, accurate decision-making, mitigates risk and helps businesses to unlock their potential for growth.


Why now?

As UK companies operating in a global economy are being increasing effected by external events, they are more than ever looking to solutions to mitigate exposure to risk within financial management. Extreme weather, fuel crisis, supply chain issues, covid, sanctions and war, bring instability to their businesses, and it is having a major impact on their outlook and the economy as a whole.

Especially over the last five years company’s have already been increasingly impacted by fuel prices, shipping costs, staff retention issues, manufacturing restrictions, or compliance changes, that effect their bottom line. They are struggling to navigate the economic turmoil, often focusing on survival.

With the emergence of clean data and AI machine learning technology, a new innovative ‘world first’ platform such as Sherloc, is set to revolutionise the way businesses make decisions, eliminating risk from financial planning, letting then focus on growth and making it the universal must have business tool.

The £7tr disintermediated SME market is a huge opportunity and Eb’s Sherloc financial risk management platform is in a primed position to take advantage of it.  Sherloc is now live, already with 4 pilots with banks and accountancies being teed up, and the turmoil keeps driving demand from new clients. The EIS Round is closing at end of April at £5m pre-money evaluation, so get in now as the round A will be at 5x this level!
