We’re delighted to have worked with CARMA, a leading global media intelligence business, to produce these reports.

From Coverage to Capital
I’m grateful to the frankly stellar list of companies that have provided case studies for this report, which all demonstrate the impact of media coverage on business growth in their own organisations. This research report features case studies from some of the leading high-growth businesses in the UK including Curve, Papercup, Cytora, HelloDone and Phos. It also features an excellent case study from equity crowdfunding platform Crowdcube. I’m enormously grateful to Amir Jirbandey, Brad Hyett, Ed Hodges, Jo Candy, Max Pepe and Zarina Banu who freely gave their time to contribute to this.
