Digital agency start-up Huddle Digital has been accepted onto the Entrepreneurial Spark Powered by NatWest accelerator hub in Manchester.

Described as the world’s largest free business accelerator programme, Entrepreneurial Spark aims to support and empower business owners to scale their companies.

It has 13 hubs across the UK, with a site in Manchester which Huddle will now join.

“We’re delighted to have been accepted onto Entrepreneurial Spark Powered by NatWest,” Huddle co-founder Tom Parson said.

“With a growing team, new product launches and new client wins, it’s an important time for our business as we prepare for future growth.”

Huddle specialises in web design and development services and has recently launched a new software product aimed at optimising deal due diligence and provider investor insights for property investment teams.

The firm has been in business for two years and works with a number of professional services clients, including London-based property advisers Vail Williams and Allsop.

Having joined the programme, Huddle will now work with business coaches, legal professionals and financial advisers over the next six months to take its business to the next stage of growth.

Entrepreneurial Spark has so far helped to generate more than 3,150 jobs and has raised over £151 million in investment from its base at NatWest offices on Hardman Boulevard, Spinningfields, Manchester.
