Animmersion secures Innovate UK funding 

Based in Boho One, Animmersion has recently secured funding to help expand its latest Virtual Interactive Events technology. 

The service has enabled custom virtual meeting spaces to be created for clients throughout new social distancing measures and can deliver exhibition stands, virtual showrooms and remote presentations, tailored to individual clients using Animmersion technologies. 

Businesses can use displays from desktop interaction to Virtual or Augmented Reality to interact with clients as if they were together despite being in remote settings. 

The funding will be used to continuously improve and expand features within the platform. 

£20m of funding was made available earlier this year through Innovate UK for British businesses to respond to the community’s needs following the Covid-19 pandemic.

Digital Teesside Jobs booming 

Despite the adverse times we’re in, we’re pleased to see the sheer number of companies in the Digital Teesside sphere who are hiring new staff. 

Companies based across Middlesbrough in various sectors have been sharing their job opportunities. Carbon RMP, Big Bite, Colehouse and Mabo are just of a few of the companies looking. 

Middlesbrough Digital tweeted a thread this week, bringing together all the vacancies in the area. So, whether you’re looking for a role or looking to advertise your company’s job opportunities it’s worth checking out and getting in touch. 

We can’t wait to welcome all the new recruits to the Digital Teesside gang. 



Our favourite Pug-loving guy over at SockMonkey recently took part in a Virtual 10k for charity. 

You may have seen Bob Makin post-run over on his Twitter feed as he ran to raise money for SpecialEffect, a charity that works to help people with physical disabilities to enjoy video games. 

The efforts have replaced Bob’s plan to take part in the Great North Run 2020, as he instead takes to running the Great North Run Solo 2020, the SpecialEffect Virtual 10k AND The Great North Run 2021. 

Over 250 people from all across the world ran 10k each to raise money and Bob even added an extra 0.11km for luck, or miscalculation who knows, but either way you should head over to his JustGiving page and leave a donation for this awesome charity. 

Well done!
