MyLife Digital’s business transformation

Inc & Co will rejuvenate MyLife Digital’s business strategies using funding from Fresh Thinking Group (FTG), an independent capital investment group that provides capital injections and R&D funds to support business reformation and growth. Founded by the specialist private equity and distressed M&A investor Scott Dylan, FTG funds multiple groups, including Inc & Co, each of which benefits from FTG’s high-level business-development operations.

‘This addition represents our commitment to both the digital sector and our goal to help businesses thrive in these difficult times,’ says Scott Dylan.










With FTG funding in place, Inc & Co’s team will work with MyLife Digital’s data specialists to further develop software solutions. These solutions will help MyLife Digital’s clients to engage prospects while complying with new and upcoming personal data legislation. Meanwhile, MyLife Digital’s team of 40 will prove invaluable to Inc & Co’s shared collective; each team member offers impressive experience and knowledge in the charity, utilities, and transportation sectors.

Inc & Co’s Dave Antrobus will lead MyLife Digital’s new technical developments and strategies.
