We were focused on finding a partner that can support us and in GCP we have found like-minded people and we’re excited to work with them going forward.”
Liz Whitefield, director at Hippo Digital, added: “GCP specialises in supporting high-growth UK businesses and we are really excited to be working with a team of experts who not only have proven expertise in our sector but absolutely get our culture, something all our Hippos align to and which is at the heart of our success.
Alex Thomson, partner at GCP, said: “We are thrilled to have completed an investment to support the exciting growth plans of Hippo Digital.
