Nevaeh Technology signs up at Daresbury

India-based Nevaeh Technology is the latest tenant to sign up to Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus in Cheshire.

The business consulting, technology and services company used the Hello Northwest scheme, which was launched this year.

The scheme was developed through a partnership between the North West Development Agency, investment and development agencies for the Liverpool city region and Manchester, The Mersey Partnership and Midas, and serviced office providers.

Prabir Dasgupta, managing director at Nevaeh Technology, said: "We are excited to be located at Daresbury. The North West is a highly developed and mature market with, I believe, over 5,000 ICT companies, many with strong product and service offerings. I am sure many of the companies here could be interested in partnering with Nevaeh to create new opportunities and offerings for the UK/Europe and Indian markets."

The India Development Centre for Nevaeh operates from Kolkata in India and will initially coordinate the UK operation with the aim of establishing an independent UK based team employing 15-20 staff over the next three years. Initially, the main function of the UK operation will be to market Nevaeh services in the UK and Europe through collaborations and partnerships with UK companies with similar interests.

Mark Hughes, acting chief executive of the NWDA, added: "The Hello Northwest scheme is helping to make the campus even more popular and makes it easier for overseas investors to locate in the region. The North West continues to be the best performing region outside of the South East for attracting inward investment projects and this scheme will help us to retain that high performance next year."

John Leake, general manager of Daresbury SIC, said: "Neveah Technology is the fifth inward investment success story of 2010 for Daresbury SIC, bringing the total number of international businesses on Campus up to seven."

NWDA said since the launch of the Hello scheme in January, a total of 15 businesses have now set up across the North West as part of the scheme.

The scheme offers new overseas investors to Liverpool, Manchester, and the rest of the North West, free desk space for the first 12 months of relocation to allow investors to test out ideas before making an investment.

As well as Daresbury Science and Innovation Campus, the other serviced office providers involved in the scheme includes Avanta, Bruntwood, Orega, Manchester Science Parks, and Liverpool Science Park.
