A Middlesbrough based business start up has secured its future growth strategy, getting well prepared for when it expects to create at least another 10 jobs.

Mobibud is a real time business generation tool, that introduces a great new way of local micro and small businesses generating business between themselves.

The company’s app Biz-Buddy has been designed in Middlesbrough and it is being piloted in the Tees Valley. Wanting to plant further roots, the company has become the latest tenant to join the business community at Commerce House.

Mobibud is currently running a trial with the first 200 people who sign up to the pilot before the 17th October. They are asking local businesses to get involved, and give feedback – as a thank you each will get the first entire year for free!

The Mobibud team comprise of Andrew Cannings, Simon Williamson, Siobhan Henry and Stuart Davies. They are keen top promote local business with the app being initially promoted in the North East and North Yorkshire. He said:

“Our biz-buddy app is a perfect platform for businesses to interact, find other local businesses to partner with or use as a supplier and all in real time. Although the app has global scope, our heart is in Middlesbrough and the Tees Valley so our head office will always be here. Over the coming year, Mobibud will be targeting the whole of the UK, so it is a very exciting time in the company’s development.

“Ourselves are now a team of five, set to grow by at least another 10 if not more very quickly, therefore it was important to me to sign up to a tenancy that not only reflects the quality of our product, but that also accommodates our growth. Commerce House is just perfect for us. It is prestigious, smart, has all the facilities required and fits the Mobibud business model.”

Commerce House is a Grade II listed building in the heart of TS1 that has just had £1.2m poured into its redevelopment to create a high end business community. As well as office space, Commerce House offers board room facilities, a business lounge, meeting space, virtual tenancy and hot-desking, including co-workers arrangements.

Christine Huntington, facilities manager at the building, said:

“It is wonderful that we attract such high quality tenants as Mobibud. The Biz-Buddy app is an innovative idea that will support lots of local business and lead generation – two things that are also at the heart of the Commerce House Business Community!”

The biz-buddy app is due to go live mid November. The app will eventually be rolled out on a global scale, concentrating on individual localities.
