Media Zoo sells minority stake to fund doubling of headcount

UK digital agency Media Zoo has announced major growth plans after selling a minority stake to BGF, a growth capital investor.

The announcement comes after Media Zoo confirmed increased turnover over the last twelve months, and an expanded headcount of more than 160.

It says the new investment will help it to expand nationally and internationally and double in size over the next three years. It will also launch Zoo+, a creative partnership outsourcing solution.

Media Zoos creative work has seen it win both the Cannes Corporate Film and Television Festival ‘Grand Prix’ and The New York Film & TV Festival ‘The Grand’. The company also offers digital learning services.

Rachel Pendered, Managing Director and co-founder of Media Zoo Group, said: “This investment is key to Media Zoo moving to the next level. Our clients are demanding a new way of working when it comes to digital learning, rapid content creation and access to world class creative output. This funding means we will be able to roll out our Zoo+ proposition as a creative and digital disrupter with a different way of doing things”.
