Meet our awesome team

Talent goes beyond being able to see opportunities or a qualification on a piece of paper. As cheesy as it sounds we live and breathe what we do, we’re enthusiastic and take pride in giving the best support we can.

SparkFund has only just been launched, however we already have an experienced team in place ready to discuss your business aspirations.

Today we introduce Richard Webster, one of our Innovation Managers and ask him a couple of questions about his experience and time so far at SparkFund;

Tell us about your experience and background…

“With a career background in the IT & Comms sector, it is really great to see how the businesses talking to SparkFund about finding expertise and funding are looking to adopt strategic innovation strategies and technology projects to improve their businesses.”

What projects have you been involved with at SparkFund?

“Projects so far have been varied, but most are focusing on the development of IT/Software Systems, either to rationalise and improve internal processes or to radically enhance the ways in which the beneficiary businesses engage and manage their own customers.”

What excites you about SparkFund?

“The opportunity to make a genuine difference to businesses, to improve their effectiveness and increase career opportunities for people working in the region.”

If you think that Richard may be able to help you and your business through innovation or R&D, drop him an email. He’ll aim to get back to you within 48 hours.
