    💡 About Albus

    The first thing you need to know about Albus is that this business has absolutely nothing to do with Professor Dumbledore of Hogwarts fame.* 

    The second thing you should know is that Albus is a “working title” for an exciting new start-up that has been incubated and spun-out of Founders Factory - The Hottest Early Stage / Accelerator Investors in Europe
    Based in London, UK we are looking for talented, hungry and passionate people to join the founding team on our quest to build the World’s #1 Influencer Marketing Platform for Brands and Enterprises.

    We’re working on a paid pilot with L’Oreal and, as one of our corporate partners, the possibilities for commercial partnerships are huge. As well as L’Oreal, we have close relationships with other globally recognisable organisations who have been involved in the initial validation, all of whom have asked to use the service once it has been built.  

    *That said, working here might just be more magical than anything J.K.Rowling could conjure up!

    ✨ Our vision

    Online advertising is in crisis. The advent of ad-blockers, global privacy concerns and increasing regulation are resulting in brands shifting budgets away from traditional advertising strategies.

    +30% devices now using ad-blockers
    84% millennials don’t trust branded advertising
    But 58% do trust ads if it includes an influencer they like
    Influencer advertising delivers 11 X ROI vs display ads

    Brands are spending big (influencer fees projected to be over $6.5bn in 2019), but they’re struggling to deliver impactful campaigns, efficiently at scale. How much should they be paying for an influencer? Have they got their money’s worth? What are the benchmarks of success? Who is accountable?

    At Albus we are building a suite of tools that help brands bring the end-to-end process of managing influencer marketing in-house. We’re using cutting-edge tech and superior UX to bring unparalleled workflow efficiencies and real-time data insights that enables CMOs and marketing / PR teams to plan and execute impactful and cost-effective campaigns that build awareness, drive engagement and generate sales far more effectively than traditional forms of advertising.
