Cube3, a leading Manchester-based creative, digital and marketing agency has secured a six figure investment from Natwest’s Technology, Media and Telecoms team.

Cube3 is based in Manchester.

The funds will help fund Cube3’s formidable business plan and growth strategy to capitalise on the ever-changing landscape of the marketing services industry. The investment comes off the back of consistent growth for the city centre agency, which is looking to grow its business to £5m in fee income by the end of 2017. The funding was awarded after a rigorous process with Grant Thornton’s Business Growth Services team where Natwest’s specialist Technology, Media and Telecoms team were confirmed as the chosen investors.

Matthew Mawdesley, Natwest’s Technology, Media and Telecoms relationship manager at Natwest, said: “Cube3 is a highly creative and innovative digital agency, offering a broad range of quality, value-add services for its clients. The Natwest Tech and Media team really bought into their future plans, so we were keen to work with such an exciting and successful business.”

Karl Barker, Cube3’s founder and CEO, said: “We are in a very exciting period of our 17-year history and this investment capital will give us a great platform to realign our agency for growth over the coming years.

“We have conducted a comprehensive review of our operations and services that we provide in line with the ever changing industry that we work in. Once we have finalised our strategy, we will start rolling out our new approach to the market at the end of this year. Our core proposition will remain, as it has always been; to help our clients to build their business through delivering cohesive marketing strategies that deliver tangible ROI. The new strategy will align Cube3’s services with the short, medium and long-term challenges facing businesses across a range of sectors.”

Established in 1999, Cube3 works with clients across the UK including Revolution Bars Group PLC, Rohan and Cash Generator.
