Growing Tech Solutions in Eastbourne
Tom and Joel Fielder, directors of inspiring tech firm Switchplane, share their journey; from two engineers coding in a bedroom, to one of the largest digital agencies in the region.
Joel: When we first started, just in a bedroom, it was touch and go wether we would carry on. We decided to take the plunge and move into an office in the town centre, it was massively high risk - we didn’t have the money for rent after month three - but we were glad we did as we quickly picked up a couple of big clients.
The problem we had, was that we were technically good, we can do coding all day long, but when it came to running the business; taking on staff, trying to work out our marketing plan, that’s where we had the problem. And I think that’s a common problem for small business owners.
