Two IT experts have left good jobs with a major company to set up their own business – and one of them has even sold his house to help finance the venture.

Terry Windsor, who is renting a house after selling his home for £150,000, and colleague Jason Crown are now directors and sole employees of Anglia IT Solutions at Swaffham's EcoTech Innovation Centre.

And both of them – each married with two children – said they could not have taken the plunge without the full support of their wives and families.

Now they are working hard to build a solid business base providing expert IT support for smaller companies and acting as consultants for major firms – and their former employer, Bespak at King's Lynn, is already on their books.

Mr Windsor, 42, spent most of his working life supporting businesses in Norfolk before being employed at Bespak as IT specialist and Mr Crown, 33, was formerly the company's IT infrastructure manager.

The pair had been thinking of setting up on their own for about 18 months before Mr Crown was given the option of taking voluntary redundancy, which acted as the spur to make the move.

Mr Windsor explained: "We became aware that smaller companies relied on their IT systems as much as larger corporate organisations and had problems obtaining professional IT support. As computer systems grow within companies, so does the time and level of expertise needed to support them. We have the relevant skills to deliver exactly what they need."

Mr Crown said: "We chose the Inno-vation Centre as our base because it is central to Norfolk and in an area where Broadband technologies are becoming available.

"Broadband technology alone can give any business a competitive edge and is one of the many areas in which we can give full advice and support."
