July has been another busy month here at CookiesHQ – we had our last Smart Cookies session of the summer, won the Bristol & Bath inter-agency chess tournament and welcomed a new Cookie . Let’s take a look at what’s been happening…
Nic named among region's top 100 innovators 🤩
Our very own co-founder and CTO Nic has been named as one of TechSPARK’s Top 100 Innovators. The list showcases the most influential and impactful individuals working in the South West’s tech scene today, and we’re delighted to see so many of our friends make the cut!
Yuup is going from strength to strength 📈
Our lovely client Yuup has been featured in Business Live this month due to their surge in growth. Despite launching in the middle of a pandemic, Yuup’s seen steady month-on-month growth since September 2020.
April’s sales were up a whopping 240% on March, and May’s were up over 100% on April. The same has happened with June and July. We’re sure with summer in full swing and new hosts/experiences being added regularly, these stats are just a taste of things to come for Yuup!
