Lobster is a platform which enables brands, agencies and the media to licence photo & video directly from social media users across 9 platforms around the world.
Using pioneering AI technology, it trawls through all of the main social networks (Instagram, Flickr, Facebook, Vk, YouTube, Vimeo), along with several of the largest cloud storage providers (Dropbox, Google Photos, Verizon Cloud). Billions of affordable images and videos in an instant - live, unusual and so much more authentic than stock.
Following glowing reviews from the tech press, Lobster was picked up by several top London agencies. It’s also hugely popular with journalists and SMBs. Users either purchase on a one-off basis, starting at £1 or create a monthly subscription.
We’re looking to raise £1M to scale the sales and marketing operation in Europe, whilst also meeting the growing demand in the US. We previously raised £500k in Wayra UK, along with two angel rounds in London, after a successful launch on stage at TechCrunch Disrupt 2014.
The team consists of three founders (MBA, Design, Tech) with an HQ in London and a lean tech operation in Moscow. We’re ready to change the visual content space forever. more
