Founder & Managing Director at Purr, digital technology consultant, software developer, and entrepreneur

I’m Nick Ellison, a digital technology consultant, software developer and entrepreneur.

My main gig is as the founder and Managing Director at Purr. Purr is a digital technology consultancy that offers onshore (UK) web, app, and mobile development services. I also act as de facto Technical Director for a number of creative and marketing agencies in London, advising on digital projects and sales and operational processes. In the past I’ve worked in both agency and professional services environments, and try to bring something from each world to any discussion.

My belief is that digital doesn’t only benefit marketing teams, and that technology shouldn’t be relegated to an IT department. Unfortunately, many businesses don’t take advantage of the cost efficiencies, sustainability benefits and innovation incentives that adoption of digital offers. My goal is to build a culture in my clients’ businesses of digital being a consideration at every level and in all teams and departments.

I’m an investor and cofounder in two spinoff startups, Social Pops and iGiving, and joint-owner of The Old Rectory, Cradley – an events and wedding venue.

I’m always interested to hear from agencies that struggle to make a profit on digital projects, startups looking to bring agency experience into their teams, companies developing internal software,  or taking the next step with their online presence.


We’ve been working with companies like @Cineplacelive as an external CTO for several years advising on R&D tax credits. Did you know you can be rewarded for your innovation efforts?

This month we look at how any company can benefit from investing in innovation and the ways you can be rewarded for it (even if the amount seems small!).

Back for another @agencyhackers conference at @techspace on Happy Clients. Some fascinating insights already from agency and client side alike.

The impact an R&D claim has on your cash flow and your budgeting for an innovation project really can give you the competitive edge in your market and help keep your company relevant.

We're always looking for new client introductions. Even if you're not in the digital world, you might know companies that need our services.

What are you doing to develop new methods and processes? Are you aware of the benefits of R&D tax credits?

Keeping a unified approach in mind when you're putting R&D Tax sums together is really important.
