Captify: Awards, features & world firsts!

Captify have won the South East Regional BVCA Management Team award in the ‘Venture or Growth Company Team’ category and are looking forward to the national finals in December.

This comes on the back of a great month for the company as they were named as one of the few EU companies featured on the Business Insiders List of hottest global pre IPO ad tech companies who they consider as ‘game changers’ in the industry.

Captify have also recently collaborated with Havas Media and Emirates on the world’s first dynamic video campaign which has received very positive reactions in the media, in particular a piece by The Drum which can be found here.

Sam Packer, video partnerships director at Captify said: 
“By enabling advertisers to inform their video creative with valuable insight derived from Search Intelligence, we can now unleash an even deeper level of targeting and personalisation, simply not achievable before. Like Havas, we aim to push the boundaries, and this campaign does that. Dynamic video powered by search opens up so many creative opportunities”.
