Higgs help Inkpact complete funding round

Inkpact is a growing, creative tech company with a social mission that allows businesses to deliver thoughtful and personalised handwritten communication at scale.

Having raised a total of £835k in additional funds from both new and existing investors, the company is now being classed by technology press as ‘one to watch’. Inkpact is run by entrepreneur Charlotte Pearce, who at only 26 has been named one of the Maserati100, listed as one of the Forbes '30 Under 30' and is now being dubbed ‘the female Richard Branson’.

Charlotte started Inkpact in 2014 as a marketing and lifestyle business, but while looking for a way to scale, she met now CTO Andrew Martin and together they built the tech to allow the business to scale. Inkpact’s ‘Scribe Tribe’, the group of writers who beautifully handwrite the letters and notes in ink, comprise a wide range of people across the UK, including stay-at-home parents and others who are unable to work due to illness or disabilities. Inkpact is now able to send anything from 50 to 50,000 handwritten letters on behalf of its client companies, whether they are large or small.

West Midlands’ law firm Higgs & Sons advised on the funding round. This was led by Jamie Partington, a member of the corporate team experienced in guiding fast growing tech businesses through seed, development and venture capital funding rounds and on to exit. Jamie said: “It was great to work so closely with Charlotte and her team to secure the funds needed to continue Inkpact’s rapid growth and it is exciting to see a niche business gaining such a big reputation.”

Charlotte added: “Jamie and the team at Higgs have been so knowledgeable and have taken a really proactive approach. The Inkpact team and I are grateful for their help in making the process as smooth as possible.

“At the beginning of Inkpact, I never imagined going on to raise capital, but I realised pretty quickly that acquiring investment is essential to scaling our company. Due to both our investment and our customer demand, we are now preparing to launch our debut app on Salesforce.”
