After fifteen years in the media industry, Arti knew she had cultivated good skill sets that could help businesses.
In 2009 she joined forces with her business partner, Steve Dann.
As investors, co-founders and directors they set up a number of businesses linked to the theme of communications, including a PR agency, Fleet Street Communications (www.fsc.uk.com) and a digital design agency, Grin Consultancy (www.grin.uk.com) in 2010.
Both businesses were set up in a recession and grew parallel to reach seven figures, working with some of the world’s biggest brands.
Arti exited both businesses, via Management Buy Outs after eleven successful years in 2022.
Arti is currently board advisor to Edtech company Auris Tech Ltd. (www.auris.tech).
