EXPERIENCE

Our Philosophy

You shouldn't have to teach your agency about healthtech and you shouldn't have to watch them underdeliver. There were no agencies that truly understood healthcare, technology, investment and startups, nor any with a model that worked for the healthtech sector. So we created one.

Our Mission

To carefully design and execute a personalised, effective communications plan for each company we work with that shows your value in exciting, engaging and innovative ways. We know what healthtech companies need for their businesses to grow and we aren't afraid to be bold in our delivery.

15+

We've worked with over 15 healthtech companies to date: startups at seed stage, Series A, Series B as well as corporates in healthcare and health/life insurance.

500k+

Half a million impressions on Linkedin alone for our clients in 12 months, representing a 26,539% increase, and a 1,430% growth in followers.

35+

We regularly secure press coverage within healthcare, technology and business verticals, regionally, nationally and internationally with >35 regular titles.
