We are now being actively sort by companies organically through Linkedin and other channels to supply our expensing solution. We are also engaged with EY team from Silicon valley who have stated their interest in piloting our expensing solution. HSBC bank have also connected with us as they view our ability to match sales documents to statement data an opportunity to grow market share and keep their clients sticky. We have a massive step change opportunity with the patent protected solution we have built and are now seeking funding to roll out. We intend to IPO within two years of launch to ensure the reach of this unicorn product does it justice. No question we are solving a huge problem for everyone. We have a billion dollar opportunity on our hands and we have tested at Rise in Hong Kong with exceptional feedback.
