Online health and safety platform secures investment from Sheffield accelerator
An online property and health & safety platform has secured a “significant” investment from a South Yorkshire business accelerator.
Crysp has received a strategic investment from Sheffield-based TwinklHive, an accelerator launched by global digital educational platform Twinkl.
Founded in 2019, the platform aims to help organisations to manage their property compliance and health & safety digitally and provides solutions to tackle several problems, including companies wasting time locating mislaid documents.
Stuart Harlow, founding director of Crysp, commented: “Our plan has always been to quickly scale and challenge a market of incumbents who overcharge, provide poor service and lack the technical ability to give clients an end to end digital and physical solution that will transform the way property and other health & safety issues are managed in the workplace.”
The firm secured the investment from TwinklHive, which aims to support tech entrepreneurs and businesses that are mission-led.
Pete Mills, founding director of Crysp, explained: “Jonathan and his team at Twinkl share the same values and care for the customer as we do.
“The synergy alignment was key but also the experiences that Twinkl have faced and overcome in the last ten years allows the Crysp business to tap into invaluable expertise as we grow.
“We will always remain customer focused but we know our services can support organisations throughout the UK and beyond.”
Jonathan Seaton, founder and director of TwinklHive, added: “Fundamentally, property compliance and health & safety is about keeping people safe and well - and Stuart and Pete have highlighted the space as an area for radical disruption.
“Their desire and drive to shake up the sector makes them a great fit for investment from TwinklHive and we are thrilled to be supporting Crysp in their journey of growth.”
