We are extremely excited to be partnering with BGF with this investment. It not only means our plans are funded, but also gives us validation that an investor with a reputation such as BGF’s believes in what we have achieved up to this point.

It was clear to us from the outset that BGF was a great match given the team’s extensive experience in the tech sector. We felt they could clearly see what we are trying to achieve in building on the momentum we have created as the UK’s only HR and Net Payroll solution on the Salesforce platform
