We often approached by people with a new business idea that is based on (or requires a large amount of) software. We’ve probably seen a hundred such ideas since we've been in business.

We have been involved with raising finance for new ventures for many companies e.g. Real Estate, Automobile, Auto-Parts etc – we understand the routes to finance, and we have some contacts in this area – although we also appreciate just how difficult it can be.

For new products, we can advise customers on issues such as search-engine optimisation, product pricing and Network Infrastructure.
