29th September 2022

Connectus named among 11 Gold Partners at Sci-tech Daresbury in collaboration that will help connect and protect businesses.

Connectus has been selected as a “gold-star” organisation tasked to help deliver first class business support for growing SMEs based in the north west.

The Doncaster-based Business ISP and Managed Service Provider (MSP)  is among 11 companies handpicked by Sci-Tech Daresbury to serve as the Campus’ Gold Partners for 2022/2023.

The Gold Partners will help enhance the benefits for businesses located at Sci-Tech Daresbury’s modern-site, which is home to businesses operating across a range of areas including legal services support, financial and tax management, corporate finance and funding, AI and data analytics research.

Connectus will deliver Microsoft 365 management, cloud infrastructure, cyber security and IT Support in a partnership that will ensure businesses at the Liverpool-based site can stay connected, protected and collaborate effectively online as they scale and grow.

Commenting on their inclusion, Roy Shelton, the CEO of the Connectus Group, said: “We are proud to once again be named in this list. Connectus is committed to continue contributing our expertise and support the needs and opportunities for the high-growth companies located at Sci-Tech Daresbury’s base. This is also a golden opportunity for the Connectus Group to collaborate and develop new partnerships which will benefit us as a business moving forward.”

John Leake, Business Growth Director at Sci-Tech Daresbury said: “We are delighted that our Gold Partners programme once again continues to excel in its shared vision towards driving discovery in the science and technology industries and delivering sustainable economic growth for the Northern Powerhouse economy.

“Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do at Sci-Tech Daresbury. It’s built physically into our campus infrastructure within our workspaces and buildings, but it’s also deeply instilled into the core values that the campus was originally founded on back in 2006.

“We are grateful that many of our Gold Partners are continuing their mentoring journey, and we are certain that our smaller-sized companies will continue to benefit from their knowledge, support and expertise which will help them to successfully grow and expand within their respective fields.

Sci-Tech Daresbury boasts Enterprise Zone status, which enables government support in the form of tax breaks, allowing business rates to be reinvested into the site and create important new infrastructure. This supports greater investment into further expansion of the specialist office, laboratory and technical space on the campus. It is a private-public joint-venture partnership between developer Langtree, the Science & Technology Facilities Council (STFC) and Halton Borough Council.
