A leading UK software and verification system provider has really benefitted from receiving a Here2Help Business Grant this year.

D-RisQ Ltd was forced to diversify, due to the COVID-19 impact upon the aerospace sector specifically and fears of on-going economic uncertainty.

As part of Worcestershire County Council’s Here2Help Business Programme, a COVID-19 Resilience grant, it allowed D-RisQ to diversify and receive grant funding of £5,750.

The result of which enabled the company to bring a new innovative product to market providing further stability in challenging circumstances and the opportunity to create future roles within this high-technology based company.

Nick Tudor, CEO at D-RisQ, said: “Thanks to the Here2Help Business support, we are seeing more traffic to our social media posts and more followers from outside our current sphere.  This was the main aim of the Grant investment and hence is delivering and we expect will continue into next year.”

Councillor Marc Bayliss, cabinet member with responsibility for economy and infrastructure, said: “It’s great to see a high-value, high-technology local businesses thrive in challenging circumstances.”

“It is a brilliant example of how businesses within Worcestershire can utilise our Here2Help Business support to drive business resilience and create opportunities for future high-valued employment. ”

The good news continues, seeing D-RisQ achieving the Excellence in Innovation award at the 2021 Herefordshire & Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce awards in recognition of their investment in innovative software verification technologies over a number of years.
