Got a plan for a potentially disruptive world-changing business? Need creative communications help from wise heads? Skint? You could be in the right place!
As an independent, mission-driven agency we still remember (just!) what it was like to be a pioneering start-up business. We empathise with those who feel the burning passion of a brilliant idea. We recall the challenges of finance and cash-flow. And we’re humbly grateful for the support we received from more experienced others at the start of our own journey fifteen years ago. So ‘Futerra Labs’ is our way of paying it forward. Returning the generous favours others did for us. Living reciprocity.
We know our hard earned creative communications expertise can be invaluable to small purpose-driven, sustainability-inspired businesses. But we’re also familiar with not having the money to pay for those vital services! Through our Futerra Labs programme we provide creative and strategic support and advice to those innovative start-ups who like us dare to ‘Imagine Better’ and have the courage and commitment to try and make it happen.
Each Futerra Labs relationship is unique. There is no set formula. We’re open to offers. Maybe it’s an informal advisory role compensated through payment in kind (give us some of your lovely products maybe?) Perhaps it’s one of our Founders or Senior Team taking a seat on your Board in exchange for a stake in your business? Or even our whole creative team helping you on the full purposeful branding, positioning, messaging journey for sweat equity? We do relationships not just transactions. We want to help you succeed. The world needs you to.
As a potential Futerra Lab project you could be in good company. We’ve already worked and are working with some incredibly inspiring people and their transformative businesses and campaigns. These include Bio-Bean – converting London’s waste coffee grounds into fuel (biodiesel and biomass pellets), Snact – making discarded fruit into tasty, healthy ‘jerky’, Zero Carbon Food – growing healthy, pesticide-free food in the City (in a disused tube tunnel 30m underground!), Energy Revolution – turning festival travel into renewable energy and Fashion Revolution – the world’s biggest ethical fashion campaign to name but a few.
So if you know which side of history you want your organisation to be on, and feel you might benefit from some pure Futerra logic and magic to accelerate your success then please get in touch. We’ve got important work to do together.

Monday's mean #SustainableFashion, where every week we highlight something cool going on in the fashion industry. We've all succumb to the insatiable appetite of fast-fashion at some point. But what about subscription-based fashion rental? Companies like YCloset (newly securing US$50m in funds) and @renttherunway give us the opportunity to experience trends and borrow items on a pay-per-use basis. Dream closet here we come! How about you?
