Leeds-based technology firm expands to new offices

A leading digital technology company, specialising in interactive entertainment software, has moved to larger offices in order to accommodate its growing team.

Having recently appointed new recruit Elliott Hart to the team, Leeds-based interactive quiz provider, KwizzBit, has relocated to Bruntwood’s new flagship building – Platform.

With a background in hospitality management, Elliott joins KwizzBit as a sales executive.

Located above Leeds train station, Platform is setting a new standard for workspace in the city, offering a distinctive, collaborative co-working environment alongside 42 serviced offices and full floor plates for larger companies.

It is also set to be home to the city’s new tech incubator designed to support start up and scale up businesses from the region’s fast-growing digital technology and creative sector.

Established in 2016 by founder and managing director Mark Walsh, KwizzBit, is an innovative, cloud-based gaming platform which has gone from strength to strength, growing to a team of five in just its second year of business.

Following his recent appearance on BBC2’s Dragon’s Den, Mark has grown the business by 300%, having implemented KwizzBit in a further 200 venues across the UK. Despite walking away from the show without investment, the company has since received funding worth £40,000 from the Business Enterprise Fund and government-backed, UK Start-up loans.

An interactive alternative to the traditional pub quiz, KwizzBit has been implemented in pubs and venues up and down the country, and aims to reach one million players by 2020.

The company has also recently secured a contract to supply the platform to a national firm, who will roll out KwizzBit to staff training workshops across the country.

Commenting on the expansion into new offices, founder and CEO of KwizzBit, Mark Walsh, said: “We are delighted to have welcomed Elliott to the KwizzBit team, and relocated to the Platform offices. There are a number of developments in the pipeline that will accelerate the platform and this is an extremely exciting time for us.”

“We are confident that Elliott will be a great addition to the team, we look forward to seeing his career progress at the company.”

“The workspace at Platform is fantastic, there is a real buzz about the place, with various businesses in different sectors utilising the space, there is a real energy for success.”

Craig Burrow, director of Leeds for Bruntwood said:  “Platform officially launched last week and we are delighted to welcome Kwizzbit to our community.  We have no doubt that they will find it an inspiring environment in which to grow their business further,  while enjoying the benefits of a building designed to  stimulate creative thinking and collaborative working.”
