About us


combining deep expertise across the business media and investors, with a set-up that delivers clients a superior service for less. Born of frustration with the old PR agency model, which neither works for clients or employees, M7 offers Corporate and Financial PR, Investor Relations and Crisis Comms support for start-ups and scale-ups through to listed companies.

The M7 philosophy

is to partner with fewer clients to provide a more extensive, pro-active and personal ‘in-house’ service for a fairer, flexible and transparent fee. Simply put we offer more for less. We achieve this without compromising on quality by avoiding the large and unnecessary overheads inherent in the traditional agency model.
