"We need innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit. That's what drives change and what will improve the current economic situation we are in today" Nick Parry, MD.
I created Branch because I have a passion to drive growth with market leading technology solution providers.
An upsurge in small business performance has a bigger impact on the wider UK economy than any other single factor – it creates wealth for the state and for individuals through tax and employment, which can only be a good thing. I want to facilitate that growth.
My background is working within the IT sector. This is a field in which the UK has a significant leading presence in the world market. We need innovation and the entrepreneurial spirit. That's what drives change and what will improve the current economic situation we are in today.
I'm Nick Parry and I've worked in the technology sector for over 20 years. I founded Branch in 2006 in order to help technology companies grow their businesses.
People simply don't recognise how amazing the UK IT market is, that it exists and is bursting with impressive products produced by small medium and large tech companies. This is due in no small part to the fact that these businesses often lack strong sales and marketing support - which in turn can limit their significant potential growth. I set up Branch in order to help fill that gap.
If you look at our team you'll see all sorts of people with an incredible diversity of background and interests. We work with actors and writers and artistic types as well as the more conventional characters who have experience within sales and working for global corporates. The single thread that unites the team is that everyone involved really cares about making a difference and working hard.
The skills and experience of our team complements the typical workforce within growing IT software companies - most software companies are born out of a great idea and hours and hours of time devoted to innovating with software. Our clients tend to be incredible technically but that doesn't easily or immediately translate into commercial ability straight away.
And that's where we can help....
