Lazarus launches media funding service

Lazarus Consulting, a consultancy for media and tech businesses, has launched a fundraising service to drive growth in comms companies and the wider media.

In 2005, the consultancy launched to provide commercial advice, around strategic partnerships, to growth media businesses. Among its services, it partners with PR companies to advise their clients on revenue-growing commercial strategies.

Its fundraising service will focus on early stage businesses looking to raise between £500,000 and £3m which it says are currently “poorly served” by the investment community. Lazarus has launched the service in co-operation with Daniel Stewart & Company, an FCA-approved corporate advisory and stockbroking services business.

Steve Lazarus (pictured), the MD of Lazarus, said: “Our business has traditionally focused on helping media and tech clients to grow by identifying the right commercial strategy and then working with them to strike deals and strategic partnerships that create real value for our clients.

“We can now offer those same clients access to finance which will help to accelerate their growth even faster – with our extensive investor network, we are able to secure smart money from investors who are able to add more value than simply the size of their investment.”
