Fantastic news… another Yorkshire business funded!
A huge well done to Nǎm Sông in securing their investment.
Born from a shared love of Vietnam discovered by a young couple travelling around South East Asia, Nǎm Sông is a multiple award-winning Vietnamese coffee shop and restaurant chain that aims to introduce a Western audience to the organised chaos of Vietnamese Street Food. Nǎm Sông opened in early 2017 and their first site was quickly voted as Sheffield’s best South East Asian Restaurant. The following year they were ready for their second site and have since evolved the Nǎm Sông brand into an all-day-all-night offering, which is the tried and tested model they aim to roll out across the UK within the next five years.
Founder, Jim Rose said “Going through the angelgroup process has been a fantastic experience, that has not only enabled us to secure the funding we needed to pursue our growth plan, but also challenged our way of thinking relating to how we operate as a business and also how I myself perform as an entrepreneur. The skills I’ve gained throughout the pitching process have increased my communication and presenting skills immeasurably, and the feedback gained from Angels following pitches has allowed us to identify key areas of our business proposition that we can improve. Of course the value in investment secured will be fantastic in terms of allowing us to achieve our goals, but what is arguably more valuable, is the collective business experience of the four Angels (and their contacts) who have invested into our brand and how their shared knowledge can be applied to help us improve all elements of our operations. If anyone is looking for funding to help grow their business then I would whole heartedly recommend the angelgroup process”.
Angelgroups Martin Avison said “It’s great to have been working with such an energetic founder with such a refreshing and new approach in the food and drinks sector. We are really confident that the Nǎm Sông brand is going to go from strength to strength.”
