AdRocket

Seed Round in 2009

Unlike 'cookies' which have a very short life, our email approach creates much longer lasting, richer individual profiles without using personally-identifiable data. Our model is to share in the ad revenue. AdRocket is not an email marketer or sender. Rather the company inserts relevant cost-per-click text ads into publishers' opt-in email communications. Over 30% of email users have images turned off, meaning many publishers' ads are never seen. AdRocket also solves this problem as text ads are automatically displayed in every email opened. AdRocket is backed by top-tier seed investors.

Since Microsoft, the world has moved online, has moved to mobile, and the things that are now integral to business and culture have shifted. Today, if you created a pie chart of the utilities that are essential to business and society it would consist of mobile apps, videos, ads, articles, and online presentations.

They are time consuming, they are costly to create, and there exists to no unified, integrated way of managing and storing them. What Famous intends to do is revolutionize creation, storage, and management of these new Internet utilities. Together with our platform, called Famous Studio, we will offer powerful creation tools for Instant Apps, Instant Ads, Instant Videos, Instant Articles, and Instant Presentations that reduce creation time from months to minutes.
