TRICKLE, the latest venture from Scots entrepreneur Paul Reid, has received nearly

£1 million of backing from angel and venture capital investors.

The firm, which developed a platform to help businesses improve employee engagement, has won backing from Techstart Ventures and angels which had invested in in his previous firm. Mr Reid sold geospatial solutions specialist Sigma Seven to outsourcers Capita in 2015.

Trickle, which joined the Scottish Government’s CivTech digital accelerator programme in 2018, plans to expand its headcount from six to 10 over the next year.
