As the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF) celebrates backing £100 million of investment across the Northern Powerhouse region, we look back at some of the businesses that are achieving their ambitious growth plans with our support.
The first in our showcase is the £2m investment from NPIF - Mercia Equity Finance in Sheffield-based Azzure IT, which is the single largest funding round to date since NPIF was launched in February 2017.
Azzure IT helps organisations throughout the UK, ranging from SME’s to larger not for profit enterprises, to transform productivity and enhance growth by implementing the next generation of smart business applications in the form of Microsoft Dynamics solutions.
Craig Such, managing director at Azzure IT, offers his thoughts on the benefits of NPIF funding, which has seen his company strengthen its management team, recruit additional implementation consultants and expand sales and marketing operations.
