Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund
We’re very proud to announce that we’ve secured 100k worth of investment. This will further support our ambitious expansion plans for our award-winning social media and influencer marketing agency.
We have secured funds from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund. This will provide us with the working capital needed to fast track its economic growth and productivity and propel the company forward to a world stage.
Established less than two years ago; we are already valued at £1/2 million. We also employ 8 hyper connected young people who produce influential content, inspiring video and deliver peer to peer engagement and events.
Our team is highly skilled and Director of Operations, Jonathan Sherlock is keen to grow it further.
“We have gone from strength to strength in the last 2 years. We’ve outgrown our processes, our offices and our start up client base. But we are hungry for more and won’t rest until we are firmly established as the North’s biggest and best social influence agency.”
On the back of our vibrant growth, the NPIF funding will help us to deliver a disruptive new marketing strategy. As well as creating 5 new jobs in Manchester and expanding into our new offices in the heart of Manchester City Centre.
Our investment comes from The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund (NPIF). They are celebrating reaching another milestone with more than £10m now invested across the Northern Powerhouse region.
James Darlington from NPIF says: “We want to transform the Northern economy by backing business growth and giving entrepreneurial companies the power and resource to reach their full potential.
“Engage Hub is a great example of a business that has found a gap in a market they understand. They have put together a compelling audience driven offering that is highly successful and constantly evolving”
Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, said: “The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund is supporting local entrepreneurs and business owners to grow their companies here in Greater Manchester and across the North”.
Keith Morgan, CEO of British Business Bank, said: “The North of England has long been a key region for innovation and economic growth in the UK. The Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund is now providing the financial backing to tap the growth potential of businesses across the North, helping both the regional and the national economy”.
“We never imagined back in 2015 that such an amazing opportunity would assist us in our future plans for growth” comments Director, Ray Sherlock. “My brother Jonathan and I started out at the kitchen table with a laptop louder than a jet engine, and a credit card with a £300 limit.
We know that people are interacting with brands in totally new ways and we have developed products and services that are the cornerstone of cool.
Engage Hub is about interaction not interruption marketing and we shy away from the formulaic posting of content and instead drive real engagement that creates true brand advocates.
Now with this backing, we’re ready to take on the world of marketing and show a new way to engage in the socially active lifestyle, hospitality and leisure sectors.”
