Qrious is thrilled to announce two new collaborative corporate partnerships designed to drive digital transformation and innovation across the North East.
The Entrepreneurs Forum is a not-for-profit organisation bringing together hundreds of like-minded business owners to share experience and help each other grow their companies faster. They provide a vibrant environment where entrepreneurs feel empowered to innovate and grow their businesses. That’s where Qrious come in, as the Entrepreneurs Forum’s newest technology partner, supporting entrepreneurs in creating innovative services and product experiences to drive growth in their organisations.
Qrious’ MD, Nick Salloway, said ‘The Entrepreneurs’ Forum has an exciting vision for the future. It has the talent and diversity within its membership to make a real difference as the regional economy continues to change and evolve. We’re delighted to be working in partnership with the EF team to support ambitious North East businesses with the critical challenge of designing new operating models that will see them thrive in a digital-first world. We hope our contribution as corporate partners will help deliver positive change for the Forum’s members and their businesses.
Jonathan Lamb, Chief Executive for Entrepreneurs Forum, added:
‘Qrious is an ambitious and innovative business whose aim is to inspire and enable businesses to compete and thrive in a rapidly changing digital world. They represent everything our corporate partnership stands for and we’re looking forward to working with the Qrious team on helping our members to realise their digital ambitions. All partnerships demonstrate the importance of collaboration to succeed, and the announcement of our new corporate and collaboration partner marks an exciting period of growth for the Forum’.
Qrious has also formed a collaborative partnership with Lumo Tax.
Lumo’s mission is to support innovation across the UK, describing themselves as ‘innovation’s number one fan’. In collaboration with Qrious, they will support any organisation working with us on UX projects or digital transformation programs to celebrate and share innovation initiatives with HMRC and reward those efforts in the form of R&D tax credits that will subsidise the cost of innovative projects.
Qrious’ Programme Director, Kathryn Blight, said ’some organisations are unaware that R&D tax credits can support the capital cost of work they do with us to improve their business using digital technologies. Lumo is a very forward-thinking business, with a focus on innovation which spoke to us. Partnering with Lumo will enable us to help ambitious companies by providing them with an option to subsidise some or even all of their work with us through R&D tax claims. We hope this partnership will help move digital transformation, service design and user experience innovation to the top of the North East business agenda.
Joe Routledge, an Innovation Specialist at Lumo, said ‘working with Qrious is a natural partnership with Lumo. Their focus on utilising technology to improve businesses is a natural fit with Lumo and our focus on ensuring clients maximise their ROI on these projects through Research and Development Tax Credits, Patent Box and capital allowance schemes. Through our support the Qrious team understand how their work and costs can be supported through their clients R&D tax credits, working with Lumo we ensure a seamless solution in which we work with both the client and Qrious team to ensure a smooth and efficient service’.
