“TAPE is committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and strives to treat clients and employees equally. This drives innovation and allows us to attract and retain the best talent. If we can help prevent discrimination and inspire communities then we know we are on the right track. The past decade has seen so much progression in diversity and equality, but the recent political storms have seen huge setbacks in our society. We are politically aware and want to shine a spotlight on the inspiring people that make up Britain today and showcase what TAPE represents as a brand.”
TAPE was founded in February 2019 and provides Accounting, Marketing and IT services throughout the United Kingdom. The business has seen a huge following on their Instagram account (tape_uk) which has generated over 30k followers.
The company is also looking to provide a scholarship scheme to young entrepreneurs by providing them with all the tools to set up their own dream venture as well creating co-working spaces in the future.
