A Truro-based internet consultancy business that has doubled its turnover each year since being set up is looking to expand even faster having taken on a graduate under the Unlocking Cornish Potential (UCP) scheme.
NetInsight was set up in 2007 by Dan Hinchliffe and Mike Reed – who had both formerly been employed under the UCP scheme. The pair have now taken on a project manager – James Lavell, who has just graduated from Cornwall College with a BA Honours in Business and Administration.
Reed said: “We saw a gap in the market when a friend had a website built that failed to work for their business on any commercial level. We began this business as the credit crunch was just starting but we have doubled turnover year on year and are looking to triple it this year.
“We predict our business will grow rapidly now we have taken on James and are planning to take on a second graduate next summer.”
Ben Leonard, UCP business development manager, added: “This is a great example of where a UCP graduate can add real value to a business, bringing in fresh skills and enthusiasm and giving the directors confidence that they can take responsibility for a business critical piece of work. James is undertaking a key project for NetInsight that will help it to continue to grow and meet the expectations of its demanding client base.”
