Collider, the accelerator dedicated to marketing and adtech, has opened up its Investor Club offering to give marketers an opportunity to invest directly into 10 of the world’s most promising startups.
Collider said there have been few opportunities for marketing and advertising professionals to invest directly into startups in the ‘MadTech’ space. But on the back of the acquisition global video ad platform Unruly for a sum nearing $176m by News Corp this week, it's is now inviting marketers to join their Investor Club.
“The demand for more opportunities to invest was proven with a successfully overfunded crowdfunding campaign last year," said Rose Lewis, co-founder of Collider. "We are encouraging all people in the marketing and advertising industries who want to gain a competitive advantage in tech to invest a small portion of your hard-earned cash in the Collider15 Autumn cohort.”
Investors will gain access to an elite gathering of marketing and advertising executives – including executives from Havas, and Ogilvy & Mather Group UK - and innovators in the tech world to work with10 emerging MadTech startups
