About the deal
Rickitt Mitchell advised DataCentred Ltd on a fundraising which brought in Jon Moulton, Enterprise Ventures and the Greater Manchester Investment Fund as investor shareholders. The funding enabled DataCentred to complete their first site at MediaCityUK and to continue developing its Open Source cloud computing platform.
"This funding package is hugely significant for the company. It enables us to complete our first site and deliver cloud services for our clients. It also allows choice to clients and operators in rebalancing the UK's internet infrastructure towards the North."Mike Kelly | Founder and CEO | DataCentred
