Manchester based GradTouch raises £1m in funding


Two of Turner Parkinson’s Corporate Partners have advised technology platform GradTouch on their recent investment. Funding of £250,000 has been provided by Maven on behalf of Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF), and the remaining £750,000 from private investors, many of which are existing investors.

The Manchester based company provides technology for SMEs wanting to attract, assess and hire graduates.

Corporate Partners Adrian Rogers and David Easdown provided legal support to Gradtouch on the investment. Adrian commented: "We’re delighted to continue to assist Zac, Joe and the team and they further expand this exciting business. The drive and enthusiasm from the Gradtouch team makes them a joy to be involved with."

Zac Williams, Founder of Gradtouch, spoke of his delight of the investment: “We’re excited to be bringing Maven on-board as I know they will be a real value add investor. Their wealth of experience in helping businesses grow is something that really attracted us to working with them and applying for to the NPIF fund. Looking forwards into the rest of 2018, I know that Maven’s input, coupled with our current team of employees and investors will lead to a great year for GradTouch.”
