“Our core proposition will remain, as it has always been; to help our clients to build their business through delivering cohesive marketing strategies that deliver tangible ROI. The new strategy will align Cube3’s services with the short, medium and long-term challenges facing businesses across a range of sectors.”

It received the funding, following a “rigorous process” with Grant Thornton’s Business Growth Services team where Natwest’s specialist Technology, Media and Telecoms team were confirmed as the chosen investors.
