Blackstock Consulting is proud to announce the publication of  Radical Capital, bringing together 60 major players across the private and public sector. In partnership with Bidwells, this follows 2019’s award-winning Radical Regeneration Manifesto which set out a host of progressive ideas not only for the Oxford-Cambridge Arc, but for everyone. This latest campaign is largely Arc-focused, bringing together 60 influential organisations from academics and the private and public sectors. Contributors range from AstraZeneca and Santander UK to Wellcome Sanger Institute and Oxford Science Enterprises.

The think tank assembled by Blackstock Consulting strategy director Josh Carson and Joseph Lee, senior policy advisor, who led this mammoth project alongside Matt Allen FCIM and his team at Bidwells, features leading banking, pharmaceutical and real estate firms, together with the likes of Sir John Bell, who wrote the foreward.

By structuring the report around different categories of ‘capital’ – Knowledge, Global, Natural, Connective, Human and Future Capital we have been able to identify avenues of investment and expertise for the Arc to grow and develop.

This report is a landmark of cross-sector collaboration, making key policy recommendations to supercharge the Arc and double its contribution to UK GDP by 2030. It underlines what nimble, forward-thinking advisors can do to move the dial and we hope it creates some of the impact our award-winning Radical Regeneration Manifesto achieved in 2019.

Blackstock has a proud history of producing market-shifting reports ranging from our work on industrial and logistics through to housing, planning and life sciences. Our work editing and launching major reports on themes like build to rent and modern methods of construction has moved the dial critically in those asset classes. Having all this knowledge in-house is why we are one of the most trusted strategic advisory and corporate communications companies in Britain.

In close collaboration with Bidwells, the policy team at Blackstock has worked tirelessly over the last eight months to produce this report. Along with our Life Sciences Innovation report co-authored with Perkins&Will, we offer an unparalleled level of insight into real estate and the built environment.
