Written by Simon Moss

Element Communications has been selected as the preferred PR and communications supplier to Capita Scaling Partner, a business unit within the FTSE 250 listed company Capita, that partners with technology start-ups to deliver sustainable growth.

Element Communications is kickstarting the partnership by supporting financial health platform Level and augmented reality firm London Dynamics.

Matt Bunn, Partner and Co-founder of Capita Scaling Partner, said: “We are proud to support a diverse portfolio of start-up and scale-up businesses, helping them to scale by providing strategic access to our network of clients, suppliers and subject matter experts to help turbo-charge their growth. We have been impressed by Element Communications’ commitment to authentic, purpose-driven campaigns.”

Specialists in supporting fast growing tech firms or businesses managing dynamic change, Element Communications will be delivering multichannel campaigns including media relations, social media management and influencer relations.

Level is a financial health platform for private and public sector organisations offering budgeting tools powered by Open Banking, early wage access, salary linked savings and financial education from the Money & Pensions Service. Last month, it was announced that the Level app has been rolled out to all of Capita’s 45,000-strong UK workforce, in what is believed to be the single biggest deployment of a fintech solution in the UK.

London Dynamics offers augmented reality solutions to brands and retailers, ushering in a new era of ecommerce and online experience. It is the brainchild of Michael Valdsgaard, former VP of Digital Transformation at IKEA.

Tom Webb, Managing Director at Element Communications added: “Capita Scaling Partner is a fantastic resource for innovative tech start-ups – the kind of businesses we love to work with. With 9,000 clients and 8,000 suppliers, Capita is expertly placed to help start-ups build valuable relationships with some of the largest blue-chip organisations and government departments in the UK.

“We are delighted to have secured this partnership and support the ambitious growth plans for exciting tech start-ups within Capita Scaling Partner’s portfolio. Both Level and London Dynamics are exceptionally well placed to disrupt some of the most fast paced and dynamic markets out there.

“We know the value that PR and communications holds for fast-growth businesses so look forward to a long and successful partnership.”
