Championing Chesterfield

We are delighted to announce that Roaring Mouse has become an official Chesterfield Champion, joining a network of organisations supporting the development of the town’s economy. 

Roaring Mouse has been based in Chesterfield since the start of 2016, when we moved into the Monkey Park Works facility in Brampton. It is a great location from which we help startups, scale-ups and multinationals from as far afield as San Francisco, Berlin, Aberdeen and Southampton drive brand awareness, web traffic and sales.

The main benefit we get from running a business here is the lifestyle that goes with it. Several of our consultants live in and around the Chesterfield. It is a down to earth, relaxed place to live with stunning scenery on its doorstep and enough going on to keep you entertained. You need that kind of environment when you rely on ideas for a living.

On a more practical level, it is close enough to London, Manchester and Leeds to be considered ‘local’ and the UK time zone means we can serve customers in Europe and America during normal office hours. There are several international airports within a couple of hours drive and, as Roaring Mouse gets bigger, we’ll need more of the kind of data analytics and media skills being developed by Chesterfield College and the universities in Sheffield.

We have become Champions because we are committed to building our business and creating new employment opportunities in Chesterfield. We’ve been around for five years now and are looking to bring on board entrepreneurially minded people and partners who want to help us build something amazing. We also want to help other people build their businesses here and support Destination Chesterfield’s efforts shaping Chesterfield’s future and showcasing all that is good about the town.
