Digital Marketing Services firm off to a flying start

Following a variety of support from Business Gateway, Creo Digital hits the ground running.

About the business 

Based in Aberdeenshire, Creo Digital provides a full range of digital marketing services for a variety of businesses across the world.

Funding gave me the ability to hit the ground running with my business, ensuring I was able to get necessary equipment and successfully launch.

How Business Gateway has helped  

When 24-year-old Kathryn Symmonds, founder of Creo Digital, found herself unemployed during the pandemic, she decided to start up on her own and launched a digital marketing business in April 2021.    

With the help of Business Gateway, Kathryn built a strong business plan with solid financial forecasts. She was then awarded over £2,000 from the Aberdeenshire Council Young Person’s Seed Fund in May 2021.  Since, Kathryn’s business has gone from strength to strength as she has built a growing portfolio of global clients across various sectors.    

Kathryn Symmonds, Founder, Creo Digital, said: “Funding gave me the ability to hit the ground running with my business, ensuring I was able to get necessary equipment and successfully launch.    

“Creo Digital has grown faster than I could have imagined and I’m now looking to take on my first member of staff and launch a website.”
