What a year it’s been!
2022 has been a year of growth. As the demand for the Vennture platform has boomed, we’ve welcomed new team members, new clients and new digital partners, expanding further into the recruitment industry.
Off the back of this year’s successful Vennture platform launch, we’ve had a record-breaking 12 months, doubling the size of the business, resulting in a 100% increase in growth.
“I’m delighted we now have a clear focus on MarTech solutions for the recruitment and careers industry, and I’m confident that we will surpass our revenue target in 2023.” - Brian Whigham, Founder of Venn.
Meet our new team members
To meet the growing demand from our new clients, we’ve been busy investing in new talent and restructuring our team to provide the best possible service. Here are all the people that joined us in 2022.
This year we've received incredible feedback on our Vennture platform and full-service approach. To ensure we've got the resources needed to deliver websites, campaigns and support for our growing client base, we've expanded our team. More people means we need more space, and we’re thrilled to announce that we will be opening up a new tech HQ in Alderley Park.
“Looking ahead, we’ve budgeted for 30 new team members in 2023 already to increase our capacity in line with the growing number of clients.” - Rhys Jones, Operations Director at Venn.
Some of our favourite projects
We’ve grown exponentially this year, onboarding over 30 new clients and launching 27 websites. We’ve supported agencies large and small, designing industry-leading websites and revenue-generating campaigns. Some of our stand-out projects include:
Pareto are market leaders in transformation & growth. They assess, place and train the best talent through apprenticeships and graduate schemes to deliver the best sales leaders.

As always, flexibility and user experience have been our top priorities, which is why we’ve continued to dedicate our attention to your requirements as part of our roadmap.
As we head into the new year, we’re looking at new ways to improve the platform, working closely with our community to identify new features and functionality that will enhance the experiences for customers, candidates and clients.
We aim for transparency and encourage all Vennture users to submit feedback and ideas to our team.
