Dunclyde, Business Gateway Support – Aberdeen City & shire
“Business Gateway highlighted the opportunity to apply for the grant and gave us advice and encouragement along the way."
DANIEL CLYDESDALE, OWNER
Dunclyde is a creative brand strategist agency that specialises in the creation of online platforms and websites for clients.
The business launched a platform called ‘Open Sign’ in response to emerging needs generated by Covid-19. Initially established in Aberdeen, the platform enabled local businesses to list their present opening hours on a single, easy to use platform with additional information provided such as entry requirements, procedures and contact details.
Working with Business Gateway, the team applied for grants and funding to support the growth of the platform.
Dunclyde was successfully awarded a prestigious Government grant of £42,197, which enabled the business to expand and grow over a six-month period.
Business Gateway Aberdeen City & shire highlighted additional funding opportunities for Dunclyde, who also received £2,500 worth of free billboard advertising from Ocean Marketing at Union Square Shopping Centre in Aberdeen during lockdown.
Commenting on the support received, Daniel Clydesdale, Director, said: “Business Gateway highlighted the opportunity to apply for the grant and gave us advice and encouragement along the way. To be in a position to support local businesses and expand our platform is incredibly exciting.”
Since then, Dunclyde launched Open Sign in Glasgow and continues to work with new clients to help develop their websites.
