Your new company
We are partnering with MPB, the world's largest online platform for used photography and videography equipment. Their platform transforms the way that people buy, sell and trade in photo and video kit. MPB is a destination for everyone, whether you've just discovered your passion for visual storytelling or you're already a pro.

MPB has always been committed to making kit more accessible and affordable, and helping to visualise a more sustainable future. They recirculate more than 300,000 items of used kit every year, extending the life and creative potential of photo and video equipment for creators around the world.

Headquartered in the creative communities of Brighton, Brooklyn and Berlin, the MPB team includes trained camera experts and seasoned photographers and videographers who bring their passion to work every day to deliver outstanding service. Every piece of kit is inspected carefully by their product specialists and comes with a six-month warranty to give their customers peace of mind that buying used doesn't mean sacrificing reliability.

MPB has raised multiple rounds of venture capital and private equity funding, most recently £50m Series D in April 2021, and is listed in The Sunday Times Tech Track 100.
