The North West Fund for Digital & Creative supports inward investment by 3D visualisation business

Posted by:

The North West Fund for Digital & Creative, managed by AXM Venture Capital Limited, has led an equity investment of £250,000 into Gateway 3D Limited, alongside a personal investment from its new Chairman.

Gateway 3D is a fast-growing software and solutions vendor, providing an integrated 3D visualization and e-commerce solution for the personalisation and promotional product markets. The system allows end-customers to view products in 3D and personalize them with their own artwork, and processes 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 was founded in Derbyshire by Andrew Talbot and Rob Bickerton, and has opened its new head office in Macclesfield as part of the funding arrangements and in order to source talented new technical recruits.

Craig Slater, who has sat on the boards of several PLCs in the promotional product market and software sector, has joined the Company as Chairman and as 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.

Andrew Talbot and Rob Bickerton are both successful entrepreneurs with a proven track record of founding and building software businesses.

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.
