All the companies presented here have a few things in common: the need to provide for their customers with a new idea, or at least a new approach. They are also based in the North of the UK, with locations ranging from Manchester to Newcastle. 

Atom Bank

On The Beach: Your Toes In The Sand Since 2004

Travelling agencies had to adapt since everyone can book a holiday without a third party since the rise of the internet 2.0. A company like On The Beach is exactly like its name would suggest: an agency that will find you the best beach holiday according to your age, your family situation and your needs.  

Created in 2004, On The Beach has survived and managed to grow its customer base by targeting its clients demographic. Whether you are planning a stag-do or going on an LGBT cruise, On The Beach is able to provide you with the best holidays, with a vast array of privileges. Think about short queues at the airport or five-star service hotels all around the world. 

Wordnerds: Optimising Data To Put Words On Your Thoughts

Even if Newcastle and Sunderland are hardly considered the UK’s next Silicon Valley, many companies are working towards the future of technology. Artificial Intelligence is now considered the hottest thing around, and companies like Wordnerds were already working on it a few years ago, with the incentive of delivering tools for customers that needed to rearrange their data into words. 


It’s not easy to describe the actual aim of a company like Wordnerds, but we should mention that it helps big companies to decipher keywords through a massive amount of data. This is only possible with the knowledge and expertise of data scientists that can put machine learning to work.  

As we mentioned before, artificial intelligence is becoming the hottest thing in the tech sector, and it is set to revolutionise the lives of many people. Wordnerds is up for it and it will help clients to grow with this technology for the next years to come.
