Snowing Data – whose seven-strong workforce is set to double by the end of the year – will be moving into a 452sq ft unit at the new EpiCentre complex, which opens in November.

“With our new product for start-up businesses The Real Essentials and our Near Source solutions for software development, we needed a location that is great for our employees and able to accommodate our rapid growth. The EpiCentre gives us both with its innovation inspiring environment and excellent facilities,” said Snowing Data chief executive Asa Burrows.
