Congratulations to CloudKubed

April 18th 2024

Tech for good company CloudKubed has recently moved into new larger office space here at Witney (BIC) to accommodate their rapidly growing team and accelerate plans to make Oxfordshire a technology hub. The Mayor of Witney, Owen Collins, was invited to celebrate and officially open the new office space.

CloudKubed has experienced explosive growth, more than quadrupling in size over the last two years and is on track to meet ambitious growth plans for 2024. In addition to their new Oxfordshire-based headquarters, the successful tech company also plans to open offices in London and Leeds and become a global brand by expanding into the global market.

Martin Sharkey, CloudKubed Founder & CEO explains: “It’s been an amazing journey so far and our success is testament to the people we have working inside the business and the flexibility of Witney BIC who have always offered us so much in terms of support, community spirit and a sense of belonging. In the early days we didn’t need physical office space, but what was missing was a culture and the only way to achieve that is to physically be together and Witney BIC offered a certain energy that enabled us to foster this. They have always made the space work for us, rather than us having to work around the space and our new, much larger office space is exactly what we needed to expand our impact.”

He added: “From day one it has been in our strategy to establish a technology hub here in Oxfordshire and so it’s exciting to make this an achievable goal and provide wider opportunities for the local community.”

As a tech for good, CloudKubed solves some of society’s toughest challenges through cloud and digital solutions, whilst creating a unique company culture that’s based on growth, improvement and impact for customers, employees, and local people. From their Oxfordshire base they have earned the trust of the largest and most complex organisations across healthcare, central government, research institutions, and beyond.

 

 

Amy Waller, Witney Business & Innovation Centre Manager said: “I’m delighted that Witney BIC has been part of CloudKubed’s incredible journey. Our fully serviced office spaces are designed to be incubators for small to medium companies, to help accelerate their growth and provide opportunities for networking. In just a few years CloudKubed have progressed from solely renting meeting rooms, to taking on a small office space, to now occupying a large area of the building with their own meeting rooms, office spaces and kitchen. It’s a great achievement and I hope their success inspires other businesses who are starting out with us.”

Commenting on CloudKubed’s growth, Witney Mayor, Owen Collins said: “It’s an amazing trajectory and fantastic to see it all happening here in Witney. Quite often when businesses grow that quickly, one thing that is sacrificed in the chase for growth is the small community focus, but you have that embedded in your culture.  It’s unique and is a testament to how this company is run and envisaged. To see this happening in our community in Witney is an absolute delight.”
