New York, NY, October 1, 2019 – Personalized Video (PV) company Idomoo recently concluded a successful funding round, raising $18 million from investors led by venture capital funds Target Global and Disruptive. “Personalized video is the future of customer engagement,” said Tal Barnoach, General Partner of Disruptive VC. “Idomoo makes it easy for brands to deploy their own personalized video campaigns and enjoy superior engagement, conversion and retention rates.”
“Idomoo is in great position for significant growth in the years ahead,” added Shmuel Chafets, General Partner at Target Global. “Their platform’s performance has been battle-tested with massive scale campaigns for the most demanding clients, proving that the technology behind this company is best-in-class. I have complete confidence in the company’s visionary management team.”
Idomoo offers a full suite of composing, rendering and distribution tools designed specifically for data-driven video, allowing its users to rapidly generate cinematic-quality PVs, at scale and on a self-service basis, for their campaigns. Through its cloud-based Personalized Video as a Service (PVaaS™) platform, brands and agencies can simply create accounts and quickly develop and launch end-to-end PV campaigns.
The new investment round will be used to increase the capabilities of Idomoo’s self-service platform, in addition to advancing the company’s capabilities in areas such as business development, marketing and customer success.
Idomoo’s Personalized Video services are used to drive engagement and business results in virtually all B2C verticals, including Gaming, Travel & Hospitality and Financial Services. This continued expansion is also reflected in the volumes of videos rendered, as campaigns with volumes in the tens of millions are becoming more commonplace.
Some recent examples of campaigns powered by Idomoo include:
- Epic’s Fortnite Season 8 Recap videos were distributed to millions of engaged gamers, turning them into brand ambassadors.
- adidas’s personalized Boston Marathon clips incorporated actual personal footage of each runner by syncing data from geo-tracking chips, distributed within hours of the race, yielding impressive view and share rates.
- Google’s #SmallThanks campaign, featured on the search giant’s homepage during Small Business Week, allowed SMBs to express appreciation for their customers by aggregating details from actual review content.
- Orangetheory Fitness’s BPM campaign, which celebrated individual customer workout accomplishments in clips set to original music from celebrated EDM artist Gazzo, yielding over 45,000 classes booked and a NYFA advertising award.
Idomoo CEO and Co-founder Yaron Kalish sees the new investment round, the company’s third since founding in 2008, as pivotal to its continued growth. “We are very pleased with the outcome of our latest funding round. This overwhelming support from Target Global, Disruptive and our earlier stakeholders will enable us to continue developing our platform, explore new use cases and build stronger ties with our customers,” he said.
