Who we are

Independent advisers
Our advice is built on decades of experience advising but also running businesses like yours.
Deeply rooted in the media industry
We're sector specialists and have a deep understanding of what drives value.
Custodians of a community
We're passionate about supporting innovators who are driving our industry forwards.

What drives us?

Our mission is to create value, and change lives.

We have witnessed companies leaving value on the table as they strive to grow. This is even more pronounced when selling or raising capital. We’ve learned the hard way. We started Collingwood to change that.

Since 2006, we’ve helped companies to focus on what matters, only the things that move the needle.

We bring our independence and our integrity, and deliver advice that is simple and to the point. But always combined with sincere empathy. Building a business is hard.

Our promise is to give you the tools to transform your business, and your life.
