Bottlespark connects advertisers and influencers, with a focus on live video.
For advertisers, managing influencers can be a difficult task. The largest influencers can be very expensive but using large groups of smaller influencers is difficult to manage for both compliance and the legal/accounting logistics. Bottlespark provides a solution that allows companies to access the audiences of large amounts of live streamers without having to do the difficult work around managing that kind of product.

Their bidding system allows for advertisers to obtain maximum reach for their budget and their display ad system cannot be blocked by ad blockers, a growing issue for digital advertising. Bottlespark also has add-on services they can offer, like market research and contests they can run for advertisers.

What's Innovative About Their Solution?

Bottlespark is operating in an emerging industry that doesn’t have the tooling in place to deal with its growth around advertisers. The types of technology they are using are well-tested in other adjacent industries and needs to be applied here.
