Founders Forum Group has taken a “significant” minority stake in creative agency The Clerkenwell Brothers for an undisclosed sum, rebranding it to Founders Makers.
Founders Makers will remain a separate entity, joining Founders Forum Group’s innovation strategy consultancy, executive search firm and tech law firm.
Nick Horowitz, co-founder, The Clerkenwell Brothers, said: “We’ve built a culture and defined processes that celebrate the unique mindsets of the scaleups and challenger brands we work with. We call it our ‘slingshot state of mind’.”
The creative agency has worked with fintech Plum, mixed reality startup Volta XR and Rishi Sunak’s prime minister “Ready for Rishi” campaign.
Last week Silicon Valley Bank took a part ownership stake in Founders Forum Group for an unknown sum.
“Today’s founders need more than a great idea to gain momentum – they need their idea to stand out,” said Brent Hoberman, co-founder and executive chair of Founders Forum Group.
“Founders Makers combines next-gen creative with sophisticated digital strategy to help brave brands make meaningful statements.”
