4DImmersive, Creative Cow, 9Seven Group and Creative Blast have become the latest companies to take up residence in The Sharp Project.

The £16.5million Manchester City Council owned development is home to over 50 digital entrepreneurs and production companies specialising in digital content production, digital media and TV and film production.

4D Immersive, which uses light, sound, projection and software to inspire imagination, creative thinking and immersive experiences, has a core team of five.

Its operations director, Colette Gollcher, explained: “4D Immersive has found a way of harnessing imagination, and supporting the expression of the imagination, through the use of space, light, sound and projection.

“We are able to personalise the software and design to any clients’ needs and we will install it and train staff to use the software so they can facilitate the immersive experience in the spaces themselves.”

Four-year-old digital design and print business, Creative Cow, has a dedicated multi-disciplinary team of creatives and technologists that work together to craft brands for digital and print.

9Seven Group produces platforms for private social networks, employing eight people, while Creative Blast supplies high end commercial grade meeting room control software to the audio visual industry.

“The environment here at The Sharp Project resonates with us and we like the fact no one is a start-up,” said Andrew Brooks, MD of 9Seven Group. “It’s a unique space where everyone is of the same mindset.”
