We only work
Capital A work with the founders and CEOs of creative companies to buy and sell agencies, e-commerce and media businesses. Our clients are privately held companies, PLCs, private equity, single family offices and investors. We specialise in finding off-market deals for our buy-side clients.
We source deals by accessing our network of agency owners, entrepreneurs and influencers in the creative industries, approaching shareholders and directors and assisting with negotiations. We create your acquisition strategy as your partner.
What We Do
We understand the most important thing to many creative business owners looking to make an acquisition is that there is a cultural fit with the company that is looking to be acquired.
We understand that sellers want their brand and business to live on, but it’s important the new owners understand the culture of the agency they are acquiring.
The number one aspect of finding and keeping the best creatives in the company is to cultivate an environment in which they are free to create their best work.
We only deal with creative businesses, specialising in: events, branding, design, PR & comms, marketing, DTC, publishers, digital, media-planning, media-buying, adtech, martech, social media and direct marketing agencies.
We advise our clients on how to raise, building your database of companies that have a history of investing and acquiring businesses like yours.
Many entrepreneurs come to us direct when it’s time to raise finance as we’re known as the only creative industry advisory who can help you get a deal closed.
We cultivate and nurture our network with the leaders of events, media and advertising industries and can reach out to a network of industry luminaries, investors, private equity and mid market agency owners.
Often when an founder approaches us to discuss exiting their business we already have an investor in mind.
Capital A is the only place for private equity for your creative business.
