Today (8th June, 2015), we published a new press release to announce our latest round of seed funding. We’ve secured the backing of a number of prominent investors, including Catalyst Growth Partners, Professor Chris McGuigan of Cardiff University and the Life Sciences Hub, and Smart Anchor Ventures. This means that we’ve now raised over £275,000 in seed capital – and we’re putting the money to good use!

We’re proud to have attracted investors who have knowledge and experience in the industry, who are truly passionate about working with us to develop our business. Mark Hindmarsh, Director of Smart Anchor Ventures, says, “Having worked with Nudjed over the last 12 months we’re very excited about the amazing momentum the company is experiencing and believe that with this additional funding the company can develop faster. Nudjed is redefining the way organisations engage with and educate their workforces when it comes to health and happiness.”
With the new injection of funding, we’ve been able to expand our team, hiring a new Business Development Manager, a Customer Delivery Manager, and a Marketing Manager – you can find more info on our Team Page. We’re also planning to consolidate our Intellectual Property, and expand our science and product teams.
As well as securing funding, we’ve been busy signing new contracts and attracting a host of big clients including GoCompare, Bridgend Council, and OSTC. Julia Richards of GoCompare says, ““We signed up with Nudjed as we were impressed with their enthusiasm, and their passion for health and wellbeing matches our commitment to our staff. From the off-set they were always on hand and able to provide bespoke communications and materials to support the roll out to our team. They work with us very closely to ensure that our staff are getting the most out of the service, and as such we are able to better understand the needs of our staff and further improve our staff offerings.”
