A Birmingham company which helps businesses find and buy corporate hospitality packages has received a £100,000 investment.
City centre-based Concierge Events will use the funding to increase its marketing activities and target new business wins.
The investment comes from the 'Early Advantage' fund, run by Birmingham-based venture capital firm Midven, Finance Birmingham and a number of investors from the Minerva Business Angels network.
Concierge Events was founded by Andrew Vincent and has two services aimed at companies looking to find and buy corporate hospitality packages such as sporting and music events.
Mr Vincent said businesses were now increasing their spending on corporate hospitality and Concierge had seen a marked increase in demand for its services.
He added: "I'm delighted to have completed this investment. We can now push on with our plans to grow the business.
"We're in an excellent place with an offering for any size of company to find and compare packages via our website.
"We also have a software platform whereby companies can manage and monitor their spending on corporate hospitality events - this is vital for the bigger companies."
Concierge Events will use the funding to market its products and services to a wider audience and over time recruit more team members.
Giovanni Finocchio, investment manager for Midven's Early Advantage fund, added: "We like the simplicity of the technology and that Andrew knows the market well.
"Concierge will use the funding to increase awareness and win more business."
