Skout PR was pleased to read today that a Manchester-based publisher has received significant amount of funding as it looks to grow its online government news focused platform.
MediaCityUK-based online publishing and events company GovToday has received a £500,000 cash boost, its third significant investment in 18 months. The publication delivers government policy news and opinion through its online portal and it also hosts a programme of public-sector focused conferences.
GovToday will use this latest round of funds to support new products, further develop the content it produces as well as increasing headcount to enable it to expand the platform. This latest round of funding will help the organisation take the content that it already produces and elevate it to the next level in terms of video and distribution across social media and create more engaging, sharable content to keep it at the forefront of local government issues.
As a local B2B PR agency, we are delighted to see significant investment being poured into a Manchester-based publishing house especially at a time when many publications online or print are simply taken out publication. We work with a number of customers that work with the public sector and this is a great publication to target with our stories so long may it continue to grow and prosper.
