James and Jonathan both studied Computer Science at the University of Cambridge. They began working together at the successful Cambridge start up Virata, before founding their first business Camrivox in 2005. After raising over £3M in venture capital they sold the business in 2009.
As an exciting step forward, and using a memorable fusion of their surnames, the pair went on to found Green Custard. The business has grown year-on-year with the successful combination of highly skilled engineers and a passion for exceeding customers' expectations.
Continuing to evolve the company, they purchased Cambridge-based software development agency Versio4 in 2016. This gave them the opportunity to double the team in size whilst still delivering customers’ projects in the manner they value - furthering Green Custard’s position as a leading software consultancy.
