Leading software company partners with equity crowdfunding platform to fund innovative tech spin out.

An award-winning, North East software company, Visualsoft, has partnered with equity crowdfunding and co-investment platform, GrowthFunders to raise £150,000 for an exciting tech startup.

Originally designed for use within the Visualsoft office, Hive is a cloud-based software solution which measures employee engagement and has been developed to increase motivation and productivity in the workplace.

After seeing a 30% improvement in the motivation and working culture within Visualsoft, following the implementation of Hive, the team decided to incubate the new business in their newly-formed Innovation Lab.

We recently launched an Innovation Lab which is where new ideas that come from within the business, or people close to us, come to fruition. The Innovation Lab allows us to incubate great ideas and spin out disruptive, scalable, technology-based startups. Hive is the first business to be incubated in the Innovation Lab and has been spun out from software we initially created for use within Visualsoft.”
