PINNACLE Technology has raised £300,000 growth capital from investors in a fund-raising supported by chief executive Alan Bonner.

The Scottish IT services business said the funds will be used to implement its growth strategy through the hiring of sales staff and to enable further trials of its new high-speed wireless broadband service.

AIM-listed Pinnacle said it has created an IT services business with a strong base of recurring revenues, operating in niche, high growth markets such as data and multi-site connectivity through acquisitions.
