Sheffield tech company launches £10k grant to support hospitality industry
A Sheffield hospitality tech company has announced that it is launching a £10k grant scheme to help the hospitality industry.
Airship, which operates CRM platform Airship.co.uk and gifting platform UseToggle.com, is launching the £10k grant scheme to help hospitality businesses navigate the Covid-19 pandemic by providing access to a network of industry experts.
The ‘Professionals’ network is a diverse group of industry figures, including former senior leaders of Byron, Revolution, TRG, Krispy Kreme, Novus, Living Ventures and Boparan.
Dan Brookman, CEO of Airship, commented: “It’s been an incredibly difficult year and hospitality has arguably borne the brunt of the ongoing lockdown measures.
“We’ve proudly supported the industry for over 18 years and want to do all that we can to help restaurants, bars, cafes and pubs to survive the pandemic.
“Drawing on our existing relationships, we have pulled together a bunch of hospitality creative agencies and freelancers to offer our customers specialist expertise and knowledge whilst they pivot and make the crucial changes needed to ensure their businesses survive.
“We’ve continued to grow that network and have worked closely with these professionals over the past few months.
“We know that the Professionals can deliver a great deal of value for our customers and can help to expedite strategic change.”
The Professionals network grants are running in tandem with offers across both the Airship and Toggle platforms.
Sam Brown, sales director at Airship, said: “Any current customers or new customers can get involved in the Professionals network.
“The grants are running alongside a further support package, enabling new customers to sign-up and save 50 per cent on our monthly licenses.
“It’s an absolutely ideal time as we go into the Christmas season, we appreciate that it’s not going to be normal, however, they can’t stop people buying gifts for their family, friends or colleagues.”
