GCBF is proud to be an approved lender under the Recovery Loan Scheme

Case Study




The Greater Manchester Export Fund is supporting Manchester based Amaven with a six figure loan facility to enable them to build export sales of their cloud based platform that creates personalised exercise programmes.

Amaven is an online platform which measures, tracks and improves physical ability in all age groups and is designed to support professionals in schools, sports academies, gyms, workplaces and the healthcare sector.

The English language version of the product has recently been completed and Amaven will now be using their GMEF loan to adapt the platform, video content and apps for the export market, particularly China, the Middle East, Japan and India.

They are initially concentrating on the schools market, both in the UK and globally, tackling growing childhood obesity levels.

With sales of Amaven anticipated to be 80% to overseas customers, the company has already created six new jobs and anticipates creating a further 14 jobs over the next four years.
