Adavow is a MadTech startup solving one of the biggest issues in online advertising — how to reduce the number of ‘wasted’ ads generated by retargeting to consumers who have already converted.
Adavow’s next-gen Open DMP (ODMP) significantly reduces the number of ads served to consumers who have already purchased a product or have purchased a similar product from a competitor — without sharing personalised information or detailed customer records.
The Adavow RTV™ API is both platform and content agnostic, which means it makes no difference whether it’s a display ad, targeted website content, or a voiceover for a video that’s delivered via the web, on a mobile, or using some future technology like an in-store iBeacon.

Ordr.Kitchen. The way high-end restaurants source food is antiquated and inefficient. Orders are typically made at the end of service by the chef who leaves a message on an answer machine. There is no price transparency, no paper trail and no order acknowledgement. Ordr.Kitchen is an e-commerce platform that connects high-end restaurants to high quality, local suppliers. Since few chefs have time to scour the country for the finest organic goat or the most tender trombetta courgettes Ordr.Kitchen does this for them. It is a competitive market place with real-time pricing transparency, chefs can find the best product at the best price. And even with multiple suppliers all billing is on one simple invoice.

Vee-pay will offer parents peace of mind knowing card details are not shared on various websites, only the parent saves their card details with Vee-pay’s payment gateway. It will provide a safe and convenient payment method that gives parents as much or as little control as they like whilst helping teenagers develop a sense of virtual money.

Public Sphere Online
PSO is an online platform which matches people for video discussions only if they have opposing views on a particular issue that affects society. It encourages people to get out of their comfort zones and challenge their beliefs one-to-one with a stranger who holds a contrasting opinion.
2016 highlighted issues such as echo chambers, filter bubbles and fake news, all exacerbated by social media and online search platforms. But in the words of the late Jo Cox MP, “we are far more united and have far more in common with each other than things that divide us.”
Different narratives lead to alternative conclusions; that does not mean those narratives aren’t legitimate in some way. PSO will encourage debate, discussion, agreement, disagreement and much more, but most importantly it will initiate dialogue where it wouldn’t have otherwise existed and encourage the consideration of different perspectives at a grass roots level.

Our platform provides full automation of the referral process so that law firm employees can immediately share new job vacancies with their social networks, and our algorithm and vetting process determines a candidate’s suitability. An account manager also supports each firm throughout the recruitment process to make it as seamless as possible.

Thrift is improving the end-to-end process of donating and buying second-hand clothes. Our aim is to become the ASOS of second-hand fashion by supercharging the charity retail sector.
For donors, Thrift is more convenient, more rewarding, and more transparent. With the ThriftBox service, you order a box, fill it up and a free courier collects. Once your item sells, you get 25% back as credit on the Thrift store.
For shoppers, the only current option for buying second-hand clothes is to shop on a person-to-person marketplace with a poor experience, poor service, and the risk of poor quality. Thrift provides a quality-assured, risk-free place to shop second-hand.
In the US, ThredUP is on track to sell 10m second-hand items this year. 50% of their customers have never shopped second-hand before: proof that when you remove the stranger on the other side of the marketplace, you significantly expand the size of the addressable market.
We will allow companies in emerging and frontier markets to use their local currencies to
pay foreign suppliers.
