“The training and support Uniform received from ICDC was fundamental to us producing the groundbreaking work on which we have built our business.

It enabled us to think more strategically about the way we wanted to develop the company and that has helped us to win a number of substantial contracts.”

“ICDC has played a key role in the development of our business and simply put, we wouldn’t be where we are now without the ICDC’s help.

At the outset through ICDC we secured Smart funding to help us get us off the ground. We have also secured high profile project work with the help of ICDC – for clients including the Linnean Society and English Heritage.

We are currently in the process of securing further R&D funding, again with the ICDC’s assistance.”

“The partnership with ICDC has been successful because it combined our knowledge of the education sector with ICDC’s expertise in producing exciting digital content.

Their ability to take our original idea and develop it beyond the original remit has also given us the opportunity to develop the concept for use in other areas such as healthcare”
