Our London Demonstration of ECHO Was A Big Success

Lightvert demonstrated  its ECHO technology to a packed house of 80 people on March 8th at the office of Allies and Morrison architects, and the Table Cafe.  Investors and guests met the Lightvert team, as well as our partners at Kinetic Worldwide for one on one questions and answers.

Thank you all for joining us!

Lightvert Launches on Crowdcube!

We're pleased to announce that we have now publicly launched our equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube at 9am this morning, Monday February 13th.

Even more inspiring is that within such a short period of time we have raised 20% of our £670,000 target.

As one of the founders and inventors of Lightvert’s ECHO technology, I’d like to personally thank you if you have already invested in the business, it is a rare and special opportunity to introduce a wholly new medium to the world, and the media and press are taking note, including one of the leading outdoor advertising publications the DailyDOOH.

Lightvert can also reveal they have secured a partnership agreement with an industry leading Out-of-Home media specialist, to market and sell ECHO across their network of agencies and client base. More details will follow when formally announced next week.

We have received strong support from across the media industry and in particular, an endorsement from Simon Dicketts, executive creative director of M&C Saatchi.

If you’ve not yet had time, please take a look at the Lightvert Crowdcube campaign.

Thank you for your support!

Lightvert Sign UK Sales Partnership With Kinetic Worldwide

In case you missed the coverage in The Drum, we’re happy to announce to that Lightvert has secured an exclusivity agreement with Out-of-Home media specialist, Kinetic, as part of their newly formed KineticX division - part of WPP group.

The deal provides us with access to a broad client base across Kinetic’s networks including Group M (leading global media investment management operation & parent company to WPP media agencies), Independent Agencies and Kinetic’s direct clients. This UK agreement, running for 18 months, will focus on guiding our route to market, creating sales collateral and implementing our ECHO technology into media planning proposals, thus validating the value of the medium and ultimately generating revenues.

We at Kinetic believe that Lightvert and their ECHO product has the potential to be transformative within the DOOH market. The first phase will disrupt, opening up a new innovative advertising medium to the market, which will then scale to become a new channel in itself. Lightvert has already begun to wow clients and we look forward to working with them in the coming months to bring this innovation to market.
— Rosh Singh, Director of Digital Innovation & Head of Kinetic Active
