Huddersfield-based Torchbearer, which specialises in mobile app design, website development and game development, has accessed over £8,000 in grants though AD:VENTURE, the Leeds City Region Enterprise Partnership (LEP) and Kirklees Council.
Pete Waugh, director of Torchbearer, will be speaking at the event. He said: “I’m really looking forward to sharing our growth story at the conference and meeting fellow business owners. Since working with the team at AD:VENTURE our business has grown massively and we are looking to recruit two new full-time members of the team to service our expanding client base.”
AD:VENTURE is a European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) match funded programme which offers grant funding, mentoring and business development advice to pre-start, young and new firms with growth potential in the Leeds City Region. The programme also runs free events tailored to new businesses and offers support to young people who are keen to develop entrepreneurial skills.
