Caerphilly-based computer start-up Happus has been named as just one of two South Wales businesses in this year’s Small Biz 100, the initiative that chooses 100 businesses to profile and show what can be achieved.
The company is based at the Welsh Innovation Centre for Enterprise in Caerphilly, and offers discounted hardware packages for anyone who works for a charity or is claiming benefits.
Swansea’s Hygrove Homes was the other SME from South Wales selected to represent the region on a national level at the Small Business Saturday, which will be held on December 5th.
The event is a grassroots, non-commercial campaign, which highlights small business success and encourages consumers to ‘shop local’ and support small businesses in their communities.
David Williams, Managing Director of Happus, said: “It’s a great honour to be named as one of this year’s Small Biz 100. Small businesses have a huge part to play in the economy here in Wales, particularly for our customers.”
He went on to explain how how being a small business allows the company to have more control over their services and more freedom to make decisions that could benefit the customer.
“We aren’t a chain working for a head office in London, we are a part of our community, living and working amongst our stakeholders,” he added.
