Growth Capital | VCTs
Northamptonshire based Zinc Systems is a SaaS solutions provider specialising in safety, security and critical event management. Zinc’s products help leading corporate and government organisations to optimise decision making, mitigate risk and streamline business processes. Its client base includes the Environment Agency, City of London Police, Kingfisher, and Allied Universal.
The funding from the Maven VCTs will enable Zinc to expand its sales and marketing teams as well as invest in further product development, which includes the launch of its innovative SYNAPSE Analyst solution. The investment will also support the enhancement of its existing incident and threat intelligence platform which is allowing its clients to utilise data-driven technology to improve their business performance and response to risk.
The global incident and emergency management market is growing at a compound annual rate of 6.7% and is expected to be worth $171.8 billion per annum by 2026. This growth is being driven by strong demand for crisis, emergency and incident management platforms as businesses seek improved safety and security solutions against a background of increasing natural and man-made threats.
We believe that Zinc offers an excellent opportunity for investment into a scaling business that is operating in a market supported by positive sector dynamics. The Company is led by a very capable team, and they have made good commercial progress to date. Growth is backed up by strong recurring revenues and a strong pipeline of prospective new clients. We are delighted to have structured a solution which will support the delivery of management’s ambitious targets.
