Thanks to Oliver Burnill, Lionel Lamy, David Bamber and Callum Binner for their hard work on this project.
We’ve experienced enormous growth as a company since we launched almost a decade ago – building a brilliant team who have in turn created an extremely strong product. While to date we have self-funded our growth through client engagements, as we take Forrit to the next level, now felt like the right time for us to seek external institutional funding. This investment from the Scottish National Investment Bank will help us to expand our presence not only in Scotland but also to expand into new markets across the UK and beyond.Peter Proud, CEO of Forrit
The Bank’s investment will support Forrit as they look to reach the next stage of their development.
Our investment will enable Forrit to create new, high value technology development jobs, futureproofing skills in Scotland’s tech ecosystem and supporting plans to export their differentiated proposition to enterprise clients globally.
Forrit’s CMS system technology has a strong alignment with our Innovation mission and we look forward to working with them to deliver their ambitious growth plans.Jimmy Williamson, Executive Director of Innovation, The Scottish National Investment Bank
