Swedish Search Ad Agency Keybroker Funded For Western Europe Drive

Stockholm search marketing agency Keybroker has received five million euros (£3.76 million) funding from Sweden’s Investor Growth Capital (IGC) to expand in to the UK, France and Germany. Keybroker places sponsored links on search sites for clients including Nike, Opodo and some Scandinavian firms. The firm only really has a presence in Scandinavia but reckons it grew 500 percent last year. It fancies the UK search ad market alone will be worth 1.5 billion euros this year and will also use the funds to step up development on its CampaignControl dashboard. IGC’s investments include digital terrestrial pay-TV manager Airplus TV but it’s predominantly pharmaceutical-focused. Release.
