As a global leader in infrastructure, Macquarie Capital has spent decades creating opportunities as a deal-maker, developer, financier, and investor in assets that communities depend upon—from roads to airports to wind farms.
Today, Macquarie Capital continues to look beyond convention with this new initiative focused on innovative energy solutions: identifying and promoting companies with the potential to accelerate industries including utilities, transportation, and environmental services.
The Studio is open to companies who have raised at least a Series A, with business models including B2B, B2C, and B2G. Qualified candidates have achieved significant momentum in the form of customers and revenue. Ideal products and services can unlock innovation across the energy ecosystem and the infrastructure value chain at large.
The year-long Studio will take place at the New York City headquarters of R/GA and Macquarie Capital, with applications opening February 1, 2018 and rolling throughout the year. The first program module will take place beginning in May 2018. The program will culminate in a Demo Event in Spring 2019 where companies will have the opportunity to present to an audience of investors and industry executives.
At the core of the Studio is a recognition that advances in software, machine learning, robotics, and blockchain are enabling new market opportunities. These technologies are reimagining human-centric cities, and facilitating smarter growth and efficiency across the infrastructure value chain.
Areas of Interest
The year-long Studio will be split into three modules, during which companies will have access to Macquarie Capital’s long-standing network and specialist industry knowledge, as well as R/GA’s award-winning strategists, technologists, designers, consultants, and more.
Each module will begin with a Product and Brand Assessment, during which companies’ strategic needs are identified to inform a product/market impact plan. A customized team of R/GA’s award-winning strategists, technologists, designers, and consultants will then collaborate with the company to help execute this plan—providing the same transformative services offered to the agency’s Fortune 50 clients, and preparing them for future milestones including fundraising, pitching, and business development.
