Leeds-based business intelligence and analytics scale-up Panintelligence grew by 40% into the final quarter of the 2018 and took on five new people across development, sales and support.
CEO Zandra Moore said: “Increasing the team by 50% this year makes it a very exciting time to be part of the Panintelligence journey. We remain committed to adding top talent across the company, as we continue to grow within the analytics market. We’ve now set our sights on expanding overseas to Boston, USA and we are exploring China.”
Product Director Ken Miller is currently in China for the World Economic Forum among 16 companies from the North of England to representing innovators.
The Leeds company will meet with international researchers, thought leaders and companies at WEF. As part of the visit, the UK delegation has also been invited to network with Chinese representatives at the UK embassy in Beijing, as well as take the opportunity for one-to-one business match-making arranged by China Britain Business Council and the Department for International Trade.
Simultaneously Panintelligence is in the final stages of planning an exploratory scoping trip to Boston, USA in November. Zandra said: “The relationship between Leeds and Boston just gets stronger. With both cities being technology hubs, trade deals are becoming more frequent and ties are getting closer.”
She will meet communities of universities, councils, and technology vendors through face to face meetings and networking events to develop an insight into the market and explore potential partnerships with software companies in the Boston tech hub located in Massachusetts.
“Exceptional demand for our business information and analytics resources, a raft of new hires and exploring business opportunities in Boston and China means we’re looking forward to seeing what the future will bring for the rest of the year and beyond,” she added.
