ADmantX Raises $2.4 Million

New financing and the newest addition to UK team strengthens presence in key markets

ADmantX, the next-generation contextual analysis and semantic data provider, today announced the completion of $2.4M financing. As demand for new audience data and semantic targeting increases, the investment will support the company’s strategy for commercial expansion and evolution of its product line.

Increasing reliance on data for brand protection, audience profiling and optimizing the match between ads and page content require solutions for targeting that are innovative and effective. ADmantX is responding to these needs by growing its commercial presence in key markets and enhancing its Semantic Audience Profiling and Emotional Intelligence features. The company is also expanding the availability of its products in new markets in key programmatic environments such as Adform, Turn, AppNexus and DMP ecosystems.

“The continued support and investment from current and new shareholders is a tremendous boost for our development strategy,” said Giovanni Strocchi, CEO, ADmantX. “We plan to accelerate our commercial market presence and develop new innovative solutions based on our unique semantic technology, such as the expansion of our semantic audience profiling offer with advanced quantitative and look-alike modeling.”

This new financing comes together with the appointment of Nick Welch as Business Development Director, UK.

“We are excited to add Nick to our team,” continued Giovanni Strocchi. “Nick will assume an important role in expanding ADmantX’ market presence in Europe, reinforcing our leadership in contextual targeting by leveraging his wealth of programmatic experience following 15+ years in the digital media sector.”
