This company is the brainchild of Caroline Duong and serial entrepreneur Giles MacKay (recently sold Hometracker to Zoopla). Its positioned to completely disrupt the global influencer marketing sphere by offering an entirely different model. Viewed as the "IMDB of Influencers" or the "Bloomberg of Bloggers", this company's platform offers a marketplace through which brands can search, filter and connect with influencers to partake in their campaigns. The technology connects with influencers and allows brands to track results. Importantly, they take no commission on the fee to the influencers, and brands are charged a nominal monthly fee to access the platform.
