Cambridgeshire Based Start-Up Triples in Size During Lockdown

Cambridgeshire start-up Meet Hugo was founded just two years ago, in 2018, in which time they’ve grown significantly.

This growth skyrocketed during the three-month lockdown period, which has seen the company grow from a team of nine to 27. They have literally tripled in size and are continuing to create jobs for both the local area and abroad.

As businesses have turned to digital methods of communicating and generating leads during the pandemic, the demand for a service to streamline the sales process and provide more targeted prospects has increased. As such, Meet Hugo were presented with the opportunity to hire more talent to meet demand, increasing the number of staff they have and size of the business, along with both their bottom line and in turn their customers.

Ben Harper, Founder of Meet Hugo explains,

“For the most part, we’ve been really fortunate in that our platform is focused around lead generation, and is effectively a work from home tool, which means we’ve seen a higher demand than normal, and we’ve been kept very busy since the start of the pandemic. We’re growing, and there is plenty of work out there for businesses – we’ve had over £62m ($77m) of projects on our platform in the last three weeks alone for instance, so keeping up with the demand is the next challenge we face.”
