JCDecaux UK’s Nurture programme, which provides start-up businesses with support and services to maximise the impact of their out-of-home media investment, is collaborating with Amazon Launchpad and Amazon Small Business Accelerator.

At a time of heightened competition for consumer attention, it’s critical for new businesses to find media channels that reach potential customers effectively and cost-efficiently. Out-of-Home media is proven to achieve this.

Nurture and Amazon Launchpad will deliver joined-up solutions to help start-up and growth brands selling on the Amazon Launchpad online storefront use Out-of-Home media effectively to scale brand awareness and build their customer base. The Nurture programme now forms part of the strategic support available to Amazon Launchpad selling partners, while Nurture partners will benefit from the opportunity to discuss Amazon Launchpad as a sales channel for their brands.

The Nurture programme is also now available to businesses who join the Amazon Small Business Accelerator, a free, online educational programme for anyone who wants to start a new online business or grow an existing one. The Amazon Small Business Accelerator is run by Amazon and Enterprise Nation, the UK’s leading small business support network.  
Amazon is passionate about helping start-up businesses, a passion which JCDecaux UK shares and brings to life through our Nurture programme. By collaborating with Amazon Launchpad and the Amazon Small Business Accelerator, we are pleased to bring the benefits of the two-screen future – with Out-of-Home and online working together to turbo-charge media investment effectiveness – into the present, for entrepreneurial brands launching and growing now. Out-of-Home media encourages consumers to explore and engage with online-first brands, ensuring that these brands reach more consumers through a presence on JCDecaux channels that rapidly builds brand trust and brand heritage in the real world. This leads to stand-out and cut-through in the online world, which ultimately drives sales. This way, we look forward to supporting new and exciting businesses as they take their next steps to growth. Mark BucknellChief Commercial Officer, JCDecaux UK
