The North West Fund for Digital & Creative invests GBP250,000 in Gateway 3D
The North West Fund for Digital & Creative, managed by AXM Venture Capital, has led an equity investment of GBP250,000 into Gateway 3D, alongside a personal investment from its new chairman.
Gateway 3D is a fast-growing software and solutions vendor, providing an integrated 3D visualisation and e-commerce solution for the personalisation and promotional product markets. The system allows end-customers to view products in 3D and personalise them with their own artwork, and process the online transaction on behalf of the retailer. Gateway 3D powers personalisation sites for some of the largest retailers in the UK, including Pets at Home.
The company, which was founded in Derbyshire by Andrew Talbot and Rob Bickerton, has opened its new head office in Macclesfield as part of the funding arrangements and to source talented new technical recruits.
The North West Fund for Digital & Creative is part of The North West Fund and is financed by the European Regional Development Fund and the European Investment Bank.
Craig Slater, who has sat on the boards of several PLCs in the promotional product market and software sector, has joined Gateway 3D as chairman and an investor.
The investment will fund Gateway 3D’s investment in technical and sales staff and in its IT infrastructure, supporting growth in both its UK and overseas revenues.
