Manchester-based, AI-powered personal branding and content creation platform Vulse is eyeing expansion into the Asia Pacific as part of a trade mission to Hong Kong later this year.
The company will be joining tech founders from across the United Kingdom and will travel to Hong Kong in November as part of the mission, which is supported by bodies including the Deaprtment for Business and Trade and the Hong Kong British Chambers of Commerce, to explore opportunities for expansion.
Vulse already has an office set up in Hong Kong, and the team is looking forward to building the platform within the thriving tech ecosystem of Hong Kong as part of a long-term mission to broaden its reach and make an impact in growing tech hubs internationally.
Rob Illidge, the CEO and Founder of Vulse, said: “It’s an exciting time, especially with the region looking to be a world leader in AI. The city has a thriving tech ecosystem. There’s a mix of startups, established tech giants, and supportive government policies, which will help us with growth and innovation.
“We’ve also found the quality of developers to be incredibly high, which is a huge plus when building an online platform.”
Vulse successfully raised £150k of funding earlier this year from SFC Capital. It is aiming to raise up to an additional £200k investment for this funding round.
