Investment from Gresham House Ventures, Volution and Calculus Capital to enable smart scheduling company Rotageek to meet growing client demand.


The investment will enable Rotageek to scale, following several years of phenomenal growth, in which the company has signed large retail clients including Caffè Nero, McColl’s, White Stuff, and Charlotte Tilbury.

Rotageek has also made traction in the healthcare sector, replacing long established rostering solutions in Ashford and St Peter’s Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Central North West London NHS Foundation Trust.

Rotageek is the creator of an award-winning employee scheduling solution that has changed the way rotas are produced for retail, entertainment, hospitality and healthcare organisations.

Their solution uses cloud-based, AI driven technology to help multi-site businesses manage and schedule staff to meet demand, forecast footfall and optimise rotas.

The company was founded by CEO Dr Chris McCullough, CTO Nick Mann and Professor Roy Pounder. Chris trained as a medical doctor, spending 16 years in the NHS and eight years as an Emergency Medicine Physician at several London-based hospitals.

The difficulties of managing a shift-based, lean and mobile workforce provided Chris with the motivation to establish Rotageek, utilising Nick’s technological ability to create a relevant solution that not only suited healthcare settings, but retail ones as well.

Commenting on how the investment will support Rotageek, Ed Wass, Portfolio Partner at Gresham House Ventures said:

Having first invested in 2018, we are very pleased to be supporting Chris and the team again at a genuinely exciting time for the company. Our investment aims to deliver further growth for Rotageek as it takes advantage of the broad range of innovative opportunities it has created.”

The new round of funding will support the continued growth of the business, with investment planned in product development, sales, and marketing.

On the support of the investors, CEO Dr Chris McCullough commented:

This funding from our current investors enables us to accelerate our growth as we deliver more value for more and more clients. The combination of supportive and engaged investors with an incredible team at Rotageek ensures that we have an exciting few years ahead of us.
