Founded by marketeer turned entrepreneur Natasha McDonough, Sunderland Software Centre-based MMC specialises in conducting in-depth market research and developing commercial marketing strategies.

Since launching in 2015, the company has grown from strength-to-strength, securing clients from across the UK and expanding its footprint at the hub on three occasions to accommodate its growing team.

Speaking about the centre, Natasha said: “Sunderland City Council has been absolutely fantastic ever since I founded MMC. In just four years, I’ve gone from working at a table in the shared business lounge to the office we’re in today and are hoping to move again within the next three years, as we continue growing.

“We’ve also been able to tap into support from Sunderland Software City, another resident of the centre, and have received introductions from the Council to other firms in the building which has led to us working directly with half a dozen clients, we couldn’t ask any more of them.”
