Sauce launched here at C4DI roughly 7 months ago and have been developing web and app projects for clients across many sectors ever since. Amongst several projects in varying stages of development one mobile app, in particular, has been a huge success and landed them the award for Best Mobile App at the 2016 Digital Awards held earlier this month.
Marketing specialist John Cant works independently to help start-up businesses with their initial establishment and early growth. We caught up with him in our hot-desk area to learn more about how he does it all, and which project he is focusing on at the moment.
“I’m currently working with a software start-up called Hubscope,” explains John. “It’s a visualisation application used by IT project teams that shows how people, requirements, services and technology interconnect.”
Sauce is a development team born out of the C4DI that comprises Matt Gibson, John Polling and Jim Wardlaw (pictured left to right). Together they work on web and app projects across a wide range of client sectors, bringing solutions to problems of all sizes. We met up with Matt to find out more about a current piece of work, which will help members of Hull University Union to make the most of their student journey.
“Hull University Union (HUU) want to improve student engagement using a phone application,” explains Matt at their offices in C4DI. “We’ve been tasked with creating an app for WelcomeFest, which will allow the student population to access info on services available to them, view and plan events, and learn about the campus and city.”

Ten essential fundraising methods for Startups - when to get investment and when not too!
With the nights getting longer and Christmas drawing nearer it's already been two incredible weeks since we moved into our beautiful new home. For those of you who haven't visited us already or aren't familiar with the world of the co-working I thought I would give you an insight into the experience inside Hull's new golden digital hub. Background
To begin with I'll start with a little bit about myself; I graduated from university last year and now work as a member in C4DI's team. Soon after graduating it became apparent to me that I really wanted to launch my own startup in the tech sector. As a philosophy graduate - I have had a lot to learn about business (and am still learning!). After doing a lot of research it became apparent to me that digital hubs were the place to be since they offered an environment most conducive for rapid learning, discovery, support and ultimately (hopefully), success.
