    "I want to thank Tontine for providing a brilliant platform for Estendio, especially for their support through the process of gaining Disabled Student Allowance (DSA) approval for our software Present Pal. Since January this year, Present Pal has been selling successfully through the DSA and we are delighted to announce that the App has now been launched on the App Store and Google Play."

    Chris added "As a young entrepreneur, Tontine has served as a brilliant foundation to aid Estendio's growth. It was a great opportunity for us to integrate and network with other companies and was very inspiring to see other tenants expand and succeed. Incremental are an excellent example of where Estendio would like to be, and having recently taken on 2 full-time staff the future is looking very positive. Now that I'm managing a team, I'm really excited to be taking part in Tontine's i-GAP programme to strengthen my leadership skills and take Present Pal to the next level".

    Tontine has played an important role in helping us create Incremental Group. When we first arrived a year ago we were 3 people with a vision to build a different type of digital services company. Today we employ almost 50 people across 2 sites with more than a dozen based here at Tontine. Tontine has provided us with a first class office in the heart of the Merchant City that has flexed to meet our requirements every step of the way. We have got to know many of the other businesses located here, have worked closely with the Glasgow City Council and Scottish Enterprise teams and have even managed to give a few talks to students at CodeClan. It’s been a fantastic year for us a business and the team at Tontine have been a big part of that.” August 2017.

    “When we just moved out of an accelerator we were too small to rent an actual office - it would have been too expensive and a lonely place for our few employees. Tontine was a great stepping stone for the company when scaling up. Tontine has a vibrant environment and takes the hassle away from all the things required to run an office, including space planning, infrastructure setup, equipping/furnishing, health and safety, figuring out reception and many other things! We also benefitted from the business gateway support and from talks and workshops that were organised at the space. We left when we could no longer fit everyone adequately and because we needed our own special lab facilities, and the flexibility Tontine offered allowed us to continue scaling until our office was ready to migrate our growing staff. I would advise new Tontine tenants to not rush their exit from Tontine until they are absolutely sure everything is ready at the premises they are moving to (especially adequate internet infrastructure, companies can say they can provide the service and go back on their word when they visit the premises almost a month later!), set-up of some services can take up to 6 months.”
