Business support firm RTC North celebrates key wins for its clients
Daresbury-based RTC North supported clients 5D Health Protection, Oblige Global and Blinx through the Innovate2Succeed programme and all three are now prize-winners
A Liverpool city region business support company is celebrating one of its best sets of results including multiple client wins at the Merseyside Innovation Awards.
Daresbury-based RTC North supported clients 5D Health Protection, Oblige Global and Blinx through the Innovate2Succeed programme, and all three managed to scoop prizes at the Merseyside Innovation Awards.
RTC North’s Georgia Riley said: “July has been a momentous month for the business. We help clients innovate, compete and grow.
“Next year is our 30th anniversary too so this is a great accolade to add to our record over three decades. It also demonstrates the value of initiatives such as ‘Innovate 2 Succeed’, a business support programme funded by Innovate UK.
“We are the lead delivery partner. It’s designed to help SMEs commercially exploit new ideas and that’s exactly what it’s done.”
RTC North has also just helped Liverpool-based 5D Health Protection Group (a biofilm and microbiology testing firm) to secure £1m in funding to progress an anti-viral technology solution.
In addition, RTC North assisted Blinx, a business intelligence app, who were given guidance & support by RTC North for an Innovate UK grant application which has just been submitted.
Oblige Global, who seek to transform the lives of individuals with disabilities, through innovation and smart technologies won a £2,500 cash prize as finalists in the awards. RTC North has been assisted them with their IP strategy, how to go about protecting their intellectual property along with advice on Best practice when it comes to IP.
Ms Riley added: “RTC North will continue to work with all 3 companies and we’re really look forward to being part of their future success.”
