Record breaking year fuels growth plans for Sheffield tech firm

The Curve celebrates 3rd anniversary and £1million turnover success

Yorkshire-based tech-start-up The Curve Consulting has smashed through its £1million turnover target, having doubled the size of its team, delivered on more than 120 new projects, and secured more than £500k in repeat business opportunities in the 12months ending February 2022.

The impressive milestone marks the end of a record-breaking year for the business, which was established in February 2019 by entrepreneurs and industry experts Paul and James Ridgway who previously helped build and run the UK’s most successful Global Telematics Platform, which was recently acquired by the Israeli firm, Otonomo.

Located in the heart of Sheffield, The Curve offers a wide range of services from expert advice, effective training, hands-on-delivery and cloud migration solutions; to support their clients in building and running their business more effectively and efficiently.

In the three years since its inception the business has established an impressive international client base, working across a range of sectors including Professional & Financial services, Healthcare, Education, Manufacturing and The Arts.

The company is now on track for further expansion, with plans to expand the team to meet growing demand from both new and existing clients and partners – including The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust, Prospera Wealth Management and national housing charity, Shelter.

Commenting on The Curve’s success to date, and its ambitions for further growth, CEO Paul Ridgway commented:

Starting a new business is always a challenge. Throw into the mix a pandemic, multiple lockdowns and the Government mandate to work from home and it’s safe to say the last few years have been a bit of a roller coaster.

“However, I am extremely proud to say that we have not only survived, but we have also managed to build an incredible team, establish an impressive and very loyal client base, and develop partnerships that have helped us achieve the success we have to date.

”In just three years we’ve gone from a tech start-up to a well-established business with more than 20 members of staff. Having now exceeded our £1m turnover target we are also looking to recruit for more software developers who can help further build on our offering.

“We have some pretty impressive growth plans for 2022, including the launch of some new products and services, and we’re very much looking forward to seeing what year four has in store for The Curve Consulting.
