Our work

Mantis creates clever stories about life-changing tech. We are the public sector technology division of Ruder Finn, our parent company. We specialise in end-to-end communications campaigns that support the growth ambitions of tech businesses. 

We are passionate about working with clients that want to make a difference to society. Everyone at Mantis firmly believes that technology can provide a better future for us all, improve society, save lives and empower citizens.

We work with companies of all sizes, from the very small to the multi-million pound organisations, regionally and internationally. We are experts in a very specific field – creating messages, storylines and content about the technology, services and ideas that B2B and B2G businesses are using and activating them across paid, earned, shared and owned media channels.

Our tech PR clients are active in healthtech & medtech, edtech, govtech, civictech and policetech.

Case Studies

From mentor to media impact

Head of Mantis, Eleanor Willock, was matched with Dr Jenny Bailey, CEO at Ferryx, as a mentor for the University of Bristol New Enterprise start-up funding competition in 2019. Jenny and Eleanor worked together on bringing Ferryx's complex scientific discovery to life for potential financial stakeholders and customers. After winning a runner's up place, Ferryx scaled quickly, receiving much investor attention. After scoring further funding, Mantis set about building its first PR campaign and launching its first product development partnership.

Medical evidence thought leader

Obtaining medical evidence reports to be used in court cases can be a long, time consuming process, which if not done correctly, can lead to delays in trials and verdicts. To address this, SFR Medical was created to produce medical evidence reports in a timelier and more cost efficient manner.
SFR Medical contracted Mantis to help raise awareness of its services to police forces and medical professionals, as well as position its spokespeople as experts in the field of medical evidence reporting.

Crafting content and increasing visibility

Since spinning out from the University of Oxford in 2017, Inkpath’s steady growth has enabled the business to embark on a coordinated external stakeholder relations programme with Mantis. Inkpath provides a skills and career development platform for higher education in the UK and beyond.
Mantis has focused on content creation over an initial four-month period, as well as earned media relations work, to highlight Inkpath’s expertise, experience and product offering to its core target markets.
