By: Kingsley Egbuonu, IP Analyst

United Kingdom, July 5th 2012 – The Amoo Booster Series (ABS) has made its mark in the London scene as a popular tech meetup event since being launched in January 2012 by Amoo Venture Capital Advisory,
in association with NeonDrum. The ABS is designed to provide extra practical support to startups, as well as the opportunity to communicate, network and share ideas with other entrepreneurs and investors. The prominence of the ABS events in the industry is due to the calibre of speakers, hospitality and the numbers in attendance. Past events have featured speakers, sponsors and/or partners from leading organisations including Digivate, IBM, ASTIA, Wayra UK, Oxygen Accelerator and Kingston Smith.
Amoo Venture Capital Advisory is delighted to announce its partnership with Goodman Derrick LLP to support the ABS for the rest of this year. The partnership is designed to build on the successful track record of the ABS to date. Paul Webb, partner at Goodman Derrick, commented: “We are delighted to be supporting the Amoo Booster Series which has, in a short period, made an impressive impact on the vibrant tech startup community in London. We are looking forward to working with Amoo Venture Capital Advisory to raise the ABS profile still further, and to provide practical support to growing tech businesses seeking early-stage funding”.

Commenting on this announcement, Nzube Ufodike, Managing Director, and founder of Amoo Venture Capital Advisory said: “We are pleased to have the opportunity to build on our existing relationship with Goodman Derrick through this new partnership. I am confident that this will continue to be a catalyst for growth and of great benefit to startups and the industry as a whole. As a law firm, Goodman Derrick’s commitment to supporting the ABS could not be more timely. With a buzz of activity around London’s tech ecosystem, an experienced commercial partner is an invaluable asset in our shared wish to support bold startups in this economic period. We have an exciting line up of speakers for our topical events for the rest of this year and will be making announcements in due course.”

The first event under the new series is themed 'Technologies in Sport'. In true sporting spirit, this event, scheduled for Tuesday, 24 July 2012, will have a pitching competition where five tech startups with sports-related businesses battle it out for prizes ( Details of past events can also be found on using the keyword “Amoo Booster Series”.
