London big data firm Rosslyn eyes growth after finance


A growing AIM-listed software business has obtained new funding from Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank to help fund its future growth.

Rosslyn Data Technologies recently secured £1.5 million in venture debt from Yorkshire Bank’s Growth Finance team, which will enable it to expand the workforce, with the creation of new roles in its sales team to drive strategic growth globally, as well as repaying existing debt.

The firm provides structured and unstructured data capture analytics services through its cloud-based platform RAPid.

The funding support will help the business, which is headquartered in Central London, to increase its client base globally, enabling it to grow its revenues and develop new products and functionality for the market.

Speaking about the deal, Roger Bullen, CEO of Rosslyn, said: “Clydesdale and Yorkshire Bank’s expertise in providing financing to rapidly growing software businesses made them a strong fit for our group.

“This round of funding demonstrates their belief in our strategy and stands us in good stead for more growth as we expand our team, ultimately bringing us more clients and enabling us to develop new software solutions to benefit both existing and new clients around the world.”

Sandra Hope, senior director from the bank’s Growth Finance team, added: “Rosslyn is helping businesses cross-sector to operate more effectively and we’re proud to back their future growth plans.

“At a time when companies have so much data on so many different systems, innovative technologies, like those from Rosslyn, are essential to help businesses get better insights from their data.

“Our team looks forward to working with them as they fulfil their aspirations.”
