A marketing and IT-led approach to business development in financial services
We are corporate-startup collaboration specialists with the power to convene and connect.
Blukudu creates commercial collaborations between established brands, venture capital investors and innovative technology companies, often with the involvement of government.
Our experts are hybrid marketing-technology change agents. We create strategy, facilitated engagement with young, fast-growing technology companies and curated, quantifiable trade and investment opportunities. We also provide IT and marketing-led business development services to the tech sector.
We address a fundamental challenge of globalisation - insufficient 'glue' in the system. We convene senior corporate decision-makers with entrepreneurs and build collaborations that stimulate scale and enable internationalisation. Our aim is to develop economies, particularly the UK, dense with scale-ups.
Most forward thinking organisations recognise the best ideas don’t always come from within their own businesses and that working with new technology firms is key to innovation and economic growth.
Our work delivers quantifiable benefits: solving business problems, rejuvenating corporate culture, innovating brands, and creating trade and investment opportunities.
We substantially increase the quality and outcomes of corporate digital and startup investment, and publicly-funded trade initiatives, and we help high-growth potential companies secure commercial contracts with incumbent brands.
