Event Tech leaders Noodle Live have announced their next phase of growth following a rapid increase in turnover and a successful round of funding.
Since beginning operations in 2013 Noodle Live have seen an average year on year increase in growth of more than 85%. Following the successful release of a new event app dashboard in July 2016, Noodle Live celebrated their best quarter ever in Q1 of 2017. With such rapid growth, the need to expand has become evident.
Noodle Live have now completed a successful round of fundraising with a view to fulfilling exciting growth plans as a result of a rapid increase in turnover. As a result of this fundraising they have already expanded their team by 50% and are planning to expand by a further 100% over the next 12 months, taking the team total to 24. They also plan to move to new, bigger premises.
Noodle Live CEO and Founder Clemi Hardie says: “Noodle Live’s growth is really a mirror of the growth of the entire event technology sector. It’s moved from being seen as a nice addition to becoming an essential ingredient of any large scale event. It’s really exciting to see our team grow. We’re building on our 4 years of experience in the industry and we’re ready to move to the next stage and to grow our numbers and increase our output.”
Amongst Noodle Live’s new hires is Chief Technical Officer, Glyn Roberts. Glyn brings more than 12 years experience in web development, project management and product delivery. Amongst other projects he is particularly well placed to oversee the scaling up of Noodle Live’s tech products and platform and to lead on an increase in data security. Noodle Live are aiming to look closely at data protection and to respond quickly to new legislation.
“Our focus for the coming year will be to increase our automation capabilities and continue to improve the scalability and security of the platform,” says Glyn. “We need to make sure we are meeting high expectations from the caliber of clients we are now attracting. I’m excited to be brought in to be a part of this journey. I’m also looking forward to being part of a growing team who are ensuring that they lead from the front on event technologies.”
As well as hiring Glyn Roberts, Noodle Live have also promoted Vicki Fox to Head of Events. She will lead the department and oversee the hire of two product specific teams to allow Noodle Live to handle a larger pool of clients. There will also be new hires within the sales team.
