Simon Ryan’s RyanCap announces strategic investment in EMT Partners

Digital-first communications company RyanCap has announced new strategic investment in EMT Partners.

EMT Partners is an entertainment, media, sport, and technology law and advisory firm, and RyanCap’s new strategic partnership aims to bring together the talent from both businesses to deliver results from clients.

EMT Partners was founded by Trent Blacket and CEO Peter Davey, with the business chaired by Brent Chenoweth.

It offers both legal and non-legal expertise, an ability to invest in and alongside clients, with strength in intellectual property, celebrity and talent, media and media rights, sports and sponsorship, music and entertainment, and film and television.

RyanCap CEO, Simon Ryan, said EMT’s media, tech and legal capability meant the two businesses were strategically aligned for future growth.

“Having known Trent for over 20 years and watched the EMT business grow substantially since launch, RyanCap is always looking for the right strategic investments.

“The combination of EMT’s media, tech, and legal capability means our business is strategically aligned to grow in line with EMT and its founders. We are very proud of what this represents and how together we will navigate the future and build value for brands.”

Blacket added that RyanCap’s growth and progressive thinking made them a key partner for EMT to join with.

“Simon Ryan and I have spent many years discussing and analysing media tech trends and innovations across Australia, Asia, and the United States, being the core cross border markets, we have historically collaborated.

“Since the establishment of EMT Partners in mid- 2020, we have been committed to finding key strategic partners to create relationships that result in synergistic opportunities for both businesses.

“RyanCap’s dramatic growth, together with their firm’s deeply entrenched view to dominate progressive non-traditional thinking for clients, has allowed us the opportunity to formalise our dealings in a structured way. It is with sincere pleasure to bring RyanCap and the team into EMT’s shareholder mix.”
