Tech for good company CloudKubed has expanded its Oxfordshire offices after more than quadrupling in size over the last two years.

The Mayor of Witney, Owen Collins, was invited to celebrate and officially open the new office space at Witney Business & Innovation Centre (BIC).

CloudKubed said it would accommodate their rapidly growing team and accelerate plans to make Oxfordshire a technology hub.

In addition to their new Oxfordshire-based headquarters, the company also plans to open offices in London and Leeds and become a global brand.

Martin Sharkey, CloudKubed founder and CEO, said: “It’s been an amazing journey so far and our success is testament to the people we have working inside the business and the flexibility of Witney BIC who have always offered us so much in terms of support, community spirit and a sense of belonging.

"In the early days we didn’t need physical office space, but what was missing was a culture and the only way to achieve that is to physically be together and Witney BIC offered a certain energy that enabled us to foster this.

"They have always made the space work for us, rather than us having to work around the space and our new, much larger office space is exactly what we needed to expand our impact.”

He added: “From day one it has been in our strategy to establish a technology hub here in Oxfordshire and so it’s exciting to make this an achievable goal and provide wider opportunities for the local community.”

As a tech for good, CloudKubed tackles some of society’s toughest challenges through cloud and digital solutions working with organisations in healthcare, central government, research institutions, and beyond.

Amy Waller, Witney Business & Innovation Centre manager, said: “I’m delighted that Witney BIC has been part of CloudKubed’s incredible journey.

"In just a few years CloudKubed have progressed from solely renting meeting rooms, to taking on a small office space, to now occupying a large area of the building.

"It’s a great achievement and I hope their success inspires other businesses who are starting out with us.”

Mr Collins said: “It’s an amazing trajectory and fantastic to see it all happening here in Witney. Quite often when businesses grow that quickly, one thing that is sacrificed in the chase for growth is the small community focus, but you have that embedded in your culture. 

"To see this happening in our community in Witney is an absolute delight.”
