A North Shields software firm has been helping Prime Minister David Cameron to highlight the significant impact of the digital sector on the UK economy.

Downing Street hosted the first Pitch 10 event to showcase some of the UK’s best digital businesses with North Shields-based Kykloud selected to attend.

One of only ten businesses to be invited to present at the event, the mobile building surveying and asset management software firm demonstrated its software and sharing its business success.

Kykloud provides mobile surveying and condition assessment software to the construction, surveying and property management professions.

CEO and co-founder Ed Bartlett said: “It was a real honour to be asked to be part of such a high profile event to demonstrate the impact that the emerging digital sector is having on the British economy and to highlight to some of the country’s most successful business leaders what growth is under way.”

Kykloud is backed by Newcastle-based venture capital firm Northstar Ventures.

Commenting on the company’s success, investment manager Michelle Cooper said: “I am delighted that one of the companies I have been working so closely with has been asked to present at this prestigious event.

“Northstar Ventures has backed Kykloud from the beginning and we saw the potential of the company from day one. Their mobile cloud technology is truly disruptive and has the potential to completely transform the building surveying world.”
