We’re thrilled to announce the official launch of Narwhal Media Group’s brand new website. The new site marks the coming together of four industry-leading digital businesses under one banner to offer a one-stop shop for digital transformation needs.

Why Narwhal Media Group?

Over the past ten years, Luke Sartain (CEO & Founder of NMG) has founded and developed a number of digital marketing businesses, each one successful in its own specialism.

upUgo, Lasso Leads, upUgo Software and Zipcopi have all achieved notable results for clients across B2C and B2B. With decades of combined experience in SEO, lead generation, software development and content creation, it has become clear that working under a unified brand would deliver the highest value for clients in an ever-changing digital world…

And so, NARWHAL MEDIA GROUP was born! We spend time getting to know our clients’ businesses and pain points, then help to structure a digital strategy with the aim of achieving long term goals. After all, we’re only successful if our clients are successful too.

A Bristol-based entrepreneur who runs a group of technology companies including one that switched to a four-day week has secured £1.2m in funding.

Narwhal Media Group (NMG), which is owned by businessman Luke Sartain and is based at Temple Meads, operates a number of firms, including:

UPUGO – A digital marketing agency providing services including SEO

LASSO LEADS – A data analytics & lead generation business

GORANK – A white-label marketing product for businesses

Mr Sartain’s company upUgo is based in Stokes Croft and moved all its staff over to a four-day week without reducing pay or holiday in 2020.

Last year, entrepreneur Imran Hakima – a former contestant on Dragons’ Den – invested £575,000 in Mr Sartain’s group of companies, which is now valued at £18.2m.

The proceeds of the latest fundraise – a pre-Series A round – will be used to expand the company’s sales function, continue investment in software R&D, and provide working capital for the group’s continued expansion, NMG said.

Investors in the round included Robin Saunders of Clearbrook Capital; Elio Leoni Sketi from LSG Holdings; and Bodil Blain, the founder of CRU Kafe.

According to NMG, it is planning to raise further funds later in 2022 and is targeting a £200m valuation by 2024. As part of its expansion plans, the business also expects to create jobs across the Bristol region, it said.

“We are unashamedly ambitious about setting targets at NMG – our aspiration is to become the most innovative marketing tech business in the world, operating a stable of best-in-class companies.”

ROBIN SAUNDERS, MANAGING PARTNER AND FOUNDER OF CLEARBROOK CAPITAL, ADDED:

“I am thrilled to be investing in Narwhal Media Group. Luke Sartain and NMG are justifiably ambitious about their plans for growing the group and we look forward to working with them to support that growth.”

The main subsidiaries are upUgo, a digital marketing agency providing services including SEO; Lasso Leads, a data analytics & lead generation business; and GoRank, a whitelabel marketing product for businesses.
