6B Sets Its Sights On Success With £11,000 From The LEP’S #Grow Grant
We are very pleased to announce that we have secured £11,000 from Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership, the LEP’s Digital Investment Fund, #Grow, which will be used to support our ongoing expansion.
The funding from Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP), is delivered by the West Yorkshire Combined Authority, through the Leeds City Region Growth Deal; a £1billion package of Government investment to accelerate growth and create jobs across Leeds City Region.
More Complicated Briefs and Projects ?
Successfully completing the two-stage process, we submitted a proposal to showcase how we would invest the funds to allow our team of experts at 6B to work on more complicated briefs. Managing project development and collaboration better, with more powerful computing equipment, we will be able to cope with more demanding requirements.
Adding Further Talent to the Team
Furthermore, the grant will be used to extend the team with the appointment of at least one senior developer. Identifying talent that will complement the skills already available within the agency, the candidate we appoint will manage complex signature projects that require specific programming languages, build structures and other digital development variables.
Investing in Dashboard
Additional funds will also be redirected to develop our bespoke CRM product, Dashboard. With intentions to sell this product as a service across the world, we will extend its interoperability to work as a standalone product and as a foundational framework for a variety of business management systems.
Built using the latest technology, Dashboard will be available on all modern devices as a web application or native app and will support customers with ERPs, customer portals and inventory management systems, as well as being integrated with existing business management systems to deliver greater functionality.
What the Grant will mean in Practice
Managing Director of 6B, Paul Brown, comments: “The £11,000 we have secured from the LEP’s #Grow Fund means that we can pull forward our plans. We have expanded our team and our services over the years, but this will allow us to invest and focus on our Dashboard product too.
“This couldn’t have come at a better time for us as we continue to win new and more complicated briefs for both private and public sector clients. Knowing we can appoint a further developer will provide us with the resource to meet with the needs of an increasing number of clients and projects.
“Despite being a challenging year in many ways, we have expanded our team and our portfolio of clients. We hope that with this injection of funds, we can continue to share the good news and positive steps we are taking.”
Roger Marsh OBE DL, Chair of Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (the LEP) and NP11 said: “Helping individual businesses take their next step is crucial to the broader growth across Leeds City Region, as we work towards an inclusive economic recovery. We remain focussed on our support of this sector, and the lifecycle of business growth, which enables job creation and maintains the talent pipeline.”
With a focus on quality of service and technological innovation, here at 6B, we are set on becoming a leading global force in web and app development. For more information about the agency and what we deliver for our private and public sector clients, please visit https://6b.digital
