Start your journey with The Arc.

We are dedicated to helping independent agencies and SMEs accelerate growth and exit their business. But you’ve heard all of that before, right?

Well, this is where it gets interesting. We are the only Growth Advisory and UK M&A specialist focusing specifically on entertainment-led businesses.

This unique approach gives us the ability to understand your business at a far deeper level than traditional firms with their one-size fits all mentality and thirst for just getting the deal done.

In our camp, you’ll never be a number on a spreadsheet. Your business is as important to us as it is to you.

The Arc has been created by industry experts with over 35 years of hands-on, C Level experience with some of the biggest names in entertainment. Trust us when we say, we have been there. We have been in your shoes and we know how it feels. We have seen the good, the bad and the ugly, and boy do we know what the ugly looks like!

Welcome to The Arc. It's time to do things differently.
