Aurameir celebrates strong first year

Digital branding agency Aurameir is celebrating a strong first year in business by growing its headcount and continuing to clinch new clients.

Leocadia Foya launched Aurameir in April last year after working for a number of clients on a freelance basis and noticing a gap in the market that needed filling.

The company now employs a team of eight and boasts blue chip companies such as Nestle, Go Vegan and Cancer Research UK as key clients.

Speaking on what made her start-up, she said: “Clients I had worked with on a freelance basis were approaching me asking for more work and services that I was unable to offer at the time.

“So I decided to set up in April of 2015, and test traded with a full service creative production offering, so videos, photography and more.

“It worked, so I then approached the Coventry and Warwickshire Reinvestment Trust (CWRT) for business support and finance.”

After approaching CWRT, Leocadia went on to secure a start-up loan of £20,000 over a five-year period which has helped her scale and grow the business.

She added: “My main aim was to seek investment to obtain the capital equipment and premises that were needed for the business to grow.

“This gave the company assets, provided flexibility and allowed us as a company to take on larger projects.”

Leocadia goes on to say: “I have always wanted to have my own business. Working with my team has provided the perfect opportunity to service the needs of existing and new clients.

“The digital market is dynamic and I believe that this is the perfect time to expand and seek investment to take the business forward.”
