We specialise in digital technologies, hardware and software products and services and their impact on content and rights creation, production, distribution and consumption, e-commerce, and the marketing and communications industries.
The Internet as most people know it is barely 15 years old, but in that time it has given birth to e-commerce and irreversibly disrupted the entertainment and media industries and broken down traditional business models. The mobile Internet has been around for only a decade and that is having an even more profound impact on consumer behaviour. But there is more, much more change taking place all the time and still to come. Cloud services, superfast broadband over VDSL, fibre optic networks, 4G and LTE mobile networks, Near Field Communications, 3D printing, nano devices, eye controlled devices, holographic devices and media - the list literally goes on and on. The impact of digital technologies on the creative industries is continuous and the pace of change is increasing. We believe you cannot navigate the landscape in the creative industries without having an understanding of the road maps in technology and digital media. Understanding these road maps is our business.
We research new technologies so we are informed about each new product, service, hardware, firmware and software that we think has an impact on the media landscape and e-commerce so we can advise our partners accordingly. We have relationships with the major technology companies that are shaping our world as well as a network of SMEs in the dynamic digital media and technology sectors.
The best way to understand what we do and how we do it is to meet with us. We are not consultants, corporate financiers or venture capitalists, although our people have consultancy, corporate finance or venture capital backgrounds in entertainment, media, retail and technology, as well as operational experience from working in companies in those sectors.
We work with individuals and businesses that are seeking advice, guidance and assistance in building earnings and value. Every situation is different and every solution is different, but our approach is always the same – we work as partners rather than just advisers, transaction managers or providers of finance. See Our Approach for more about how we work and what we do.
