AperiMail, a British tech startup in the secure messaging industry, today announces it has received advance assurance by the UK government tax authority to enter into the Seed Enterprise Investment Scheme (SEIS), providing tax relief for investors.
They are aiming to raise an initial £150,000 in SEIS-eligible investment capital to fund research and development of their signature secure distributed peer-to-peer network-based email and messaging application. The solution will be IP rich and an attractive proposition for potential investors.
Michael Kingsnorth, founder and CEO: “We are thrilled to have received the advance assurance from HMRC, as this now allows us to promptly reach out to new investors looking to expand their portfolio in the realm of security and privacy focused tech. AperiMail is passionate about privacy and firmly believes that everyone’s personally identifiable information (PII) belongs to them and not corporations. Our solution will help give back control of who can see your data, starting with messaging and email. With further investment, we can achieve our ambitious goal of securing messaging in a hostile digital world.”
Tony Lloyd, CFO: “The encrypted-email market is projected to grow from $3.4 billion USD in 2020, to between $9.9-$25 billion USD in 2025. With the adoption of regulations such as GDPR, there is extensive demand for a new UK based messaging provider in the market. The initial seed investment will enable us to recruit additional developers to help deliver the foundation of our Web 3.0 service in 2021, and provide support and marketing functions for our current Web 2.0 based email solution, launching very soon.”
AperiMail is a software company specialising in building privacy and security centric services, starting with email. Founded in 2020, we believe that every individual should be able to live free from being locked into third party proprietary ecosystems where their data is collected and monitored. Our software is fully platform agnostic, allowing us to replicate solutions in different environments, and to migrate systems as and when to ensure security and ethical operations are always at the forefront.
