JS Group secures multi-million pound funding to support further expansion

JS Group is delighted to announce that we have secured a £5 million funding package from NatWest bank to take forward our growth plans.

The funds will be used to develop our market leading range of Aspire services that are being adopted by UK universities to support student engagement and to provide their students with the most valuable university experience. Aspire services include the well-established Aspire Engage that is the leading solution for cashless awards, scholarships and bursaries, Aspire Connect that universities use to manage the delivery of eBooks to their students, Aspire Thrive which provides 24/7 access to mental health wellbeing resources and Aspire Tech that provides the equipment and connectivity to support remote learning.

Our aim is to work with as many universities as possible and to support the success of their students. This funding from NatWest will enable us to achieve this by further developing our Aspire services and having more universities adopt them.

Mikael Rosen, NatWest Relationship Director, added:

JS Group is a brilliant business with solutions that allow students from all backgrounds to access the resources needed to achieve success. With the funding we have provided and our continued support going forward, we hope that Peter and his team can drive forward their ambitious growth plans and help even more students across the UK access these essential services.
