THE COMPANY

MediaCat Magazine launched in 2021 and is owned by Kapital Media London. It’s an online publication which explores marketing and media change. We focus on brands, the environments where they operate, and the industries that serve them, and report on ideas, trends, and perspectives.

OUR CONTENT

Our themes are broad yet specific, allowing our writers to approach them in many ways.
