Shield Safety was founded in 2003 by Mark Flanagan (CEO) who has built a strong operational management team around him. The business has grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of risk and safety management software and are the largest employer of Environmental Health Practitioners in the UK, providing audit, policy and consultancy services alongside their award-winning SaaS service.

We are thrilled to have received this investment, especially from a Manchester-based fund. Shield Safety is a born and bred Manchester business and we are committed to putting the city on the map as a tech capital. It is tremendous to have Maven share our vision of continued growth for the business, and to support us on this exciting journey. We spoke to a few different capital partners and quickly found Maven to be the clear choice as a result of their professionalism and approach.
