Leeds tech company retains law firm following £9m worth of investments
A Leeds-based digital and tech startup investment network has extended its partnership with law firm Gordons after “significant growth”.
NorthInvest has reportedly “achieved growth” and helped tech and digital startups across in the north to raise angel investment. Last year, NorthInvest facilitated £9m worth of investment in 19 companies.
Gordons has worked with NorthInvest’s senior management team since 2018, helping connect and develop early-stage tech startups throughout the North of England. The partnership has now been extended by NorthInvest until 2024.
NorthInvest founding director, Helen Oldham, said: “The last 18 months have been challenging, but it’s been fantastic to see both the motivation of founders and the appetite from angels continue through those difficult times.
“NorthInvest is about enabling startups and innovators across the North to access funding, gain recognition and realise their potential. Over the past three years, Gordons have supported the achievement of our objectives with their legal expertise and excellent connections throughout the region.
“It therefore makes perfect sense for us to extend the partnership to support our ventures and investors in the North for a further three years.”
Amy Pierechod, who leads Gordons’ relationship with NorthInvest, said: “The North remains a key area for tech and digital talent and our work with NorthInvest demonstrates the potential for this region.
“We work with NorthInvest investors to help make the deal process as streamlined as possible and we are incredibly privileged to be able to help connect northern investors with startups at a critical stage in their development.
“This renewal for another three years shows our continued commitment to emerging companies and the tech sector in the region. Leading the partnership from our side, I’m also keen to help nurture female founders and empower more women to try angel investment.”
