Mobility intelligence company Huq Industries has secured £4 million in equity funding.

Founded in 2014, the London firm provides data on footfall and visitor frequency to local councils, retail businesses and real estate developers.

It aims to empower social stakeholders to enact measures that enhance the quality and experience across these spaces.

The funding was led by 24 Haymarket alongside ACF Investors and will be used to bolster Huq’s position as the foremost provider of mobility research in Europe and facilitate its expansion into new international markets.      

Huq says its next evolution of its insights platform, Huq Signals, empowers data-driven innovation to enable a new era of mobility intelligence to enable its customers to create safer, more resilient and prosperous communities.
