We were impressed from the outset by the clear vision Luke has for the business and the traction he has achieved over the last few years; it’s exactly the type of early-stage business we look to support.”

He added: “Organisations are placing more and more focus on employee engagement and we believe there is great potential for Mo to work alongside them to improve their culture.”
