Three Years of Fresh Thinking With Scott Dylan and Dave Antrobus

Companies / SME Sep 05, 2021 - 01:52 PM GMT

By: Sumeet_Manhas


Since launching in 2018, the Mancunian capital investment agency Fresh Thinking Group has helped numerous businesses achieve their desired growth.

There are over 500,000 distressed companies in the UK. That’s just one of the reasons why private equity and distressed M&A investor Scott Dylan teamed up with award-winning technology specialist Dave Antrobus to launch Fresh Thinking in 2018. The forward-thinking capital investment group offers the personalised support and funding these distressed companies need to flourish in their markets.

Since kickstarting the group’s plans to help companies in digital and logistics markets transform their business models, the two entrepreneurs have achieved a huge level of success in raising Fresh Thinking’s profile. Here’s how they’ve helped companies across the UK launch, recover, and grow over the past three years.

Meet Fresh Thinking Group

As an independent capital investment group, Fresh Thinking offers the strategies, guidance, and funding that so many companies need to make their mark on their industries. The group offers guidance for healthy companies that are looking to grow, distressed companies in need of help, and start-ups that need funding and growth methods to get them off the ground.

Fresh Thinking evaluates each company under its umbrella, considering their individual needs and brainstorming strategies to meet these. The group then works with each company on a one-to-one basis to achieve its specific goals and overarching vision. Fresh Thinking avoids one-size-fits-all advice and straight-out-the-mould approaches in favour of highly strategised business roadmaps.

The group also provides cash injections and collaborates with each company to complete research and development processes, hone business transformation strategies, and achieve impressive digitisation so the company can gain a strong competitive advantage. This way, each company finds themselves best placed to attract good-fit leads, enjoy future-proofed working cultures, and grow their digital presences. As a result, companies under the Fresh Thinking umbrella tend to see improved conversions and optimise their returns on investment.

Personal support aside, Fresh Thinking’s acquisitions also benefit from shared, top-level resources to streamline operations. Fresh Thinking’s focus on collaboration helps all businesses in the group benefit from a shared skill base and a vast supply of industry knowledge.

Meet the Companies Fresh Thinking Group Has Transformed

In its early days, Fresh Thinking channelled essential funds and business development strategies into the regeneration of Laundrapp, the UK’s biggest on-demand laundry service. The group went on to acquire and develop the mobile-development agency Cuhu; creative agencies Brass and Neon; logistics companies GLB Transport, Parcelwise, and Caribou; and serviced office company Prospect Business Centres. Fresh Thinking is also the source of funds behind several groups – including Inc & Co, Inc & Co Property, and Orb – each of which acquires and holds further subsidiaries.

Amongst its recent developments, Fresh Thinking Group has also funded Inc & Co’s new retail arm: Inc Retail. As the home of market-leading names in food and beverage, fashion, and beauty sectors, Inc Retail strategises ongoing creative and technological solutions for up-and-coming brands like high street eatery Chop’d, plant-based milk creator GUT Instinct, ethical children’s clothing provider Tootsa, and luxury bag and accessory provider KNOMO.

Fresh Thinking is always open to support new businesses who are looking to grow, shift direction, or recover from economic difficulties. The group has offices in London, Manchester, and Leeds.

Meet Scott Dylan

As a key partner and co-founder of Fresh Thinking, Scott Dylan is one the co-founder and key partner taking the helm of the group’s offerings, which span from capital injections and business growth guidance to digitisation strategies, creative campaigns, technological initiatives, and top-level business functions. Digital strategy and business transformation aside, Scott Dylan also dedicates much time to mentoring and upskilling Fresh Thinking’s business teams.

Scott Dylan has extensive experience in managing buyouts, acquiring viable and distressed companies, and nurturing these companies so they can meet challenging business goals. With his help, these companies thrive in logistics, e-commerce, technology, and other digital markets. Scott Dylan has spent years fostering business success in these industries and offers a wealth of knowledge to help companies stand out by making the most of technological strategies. He is particularly well-known for leading major growth and exit plans, including a £20 million plan that he led within just three years.

A few of the companies Scott Dylan has directed technical projects for include Microsoft, the UK Ministry of Defence, and Deutsche Bank. He is also a member of Forbes Business Council and contributes regularly to the business magazine.

Meet Dave Antrobus

Dave Antrobus works alongside Scott Dylan as co-founder and technology director of Fresh Thinking. As a master of web development and technologies, Dave Antrobus brings a host of specialist know-how to the group; his expertise, guidance, and input have been key to the agency’s development and growth. Though just three years old, Fresh Thinking Group is now worth an impressive £80 million.

Dave Antrobus has led industry-leading software projects for major brands like Google, Matalan, Harvey Nichols, Coast, Oasis, and SimplyBe. He combines his expertise as a software developer with his project management experience to help technical teams achieve high-level e-commerce and web projects. His consultancy-led approach makes him an ideal mentor for the technical teams amongst Fresh Thinking’s acquisitions, each of which gains invaluable skills from his mentoring programmes. Those taking part in these programmes benefit from his code reviews and regular meetings, each designed to help developers build stand-out technological solutions.
