LONDON (17 August, 2022) – VidMob, the leading platform for Intelligent Creative, today announced that it has raised $110 million in a Series D investment round led by Shamrock Capital, with strong participation from a leading group of new and existing investors.
VidMob’s Intelligent Creative platform provides an end-to-end solution to help brands optimise the performance of their creative advertising assets by unifying data and analytics with creative production, delivering improved marketing performance and business results across all platforms and creative formats. The company’s revenue has grown at a compound annual growth rate of 110%, having experienced accelerated growth every year for the past four years, as new brands join the platform and existing clients meaningfully expand their usage. VidMob will use the Series D investment to continue to invest in sales and marketing, accelerate platform development and expand its global footprint. Shamrock Capital led the Series D investment, with meaningful participation from existing investors including ID Fund and Drive by DraftKings, as well as new investors including eGateway and PROOF. The group joins a strong list of existing investors, including Adobe, Shutterstock, BuildGroup and Spruce House.
“We are proud to have had Shamrock Capital lead our latest investment, which will accelerate the power of creative data to help customers, agencies and brands refine their messages to be more clear, powerful, and effective,” said Alex Collmer, CEO and Co-Founder of VidMob. “Their investment is a testament to the quality of VidMob’s technology, the positive impact that our customers experience every day, and the opportunity ahead.”
