In February 2015, Frog Capital led a $16m Series C funding round into Skimlinks, a content monetisation service which enables organisations to automatically turn product links and references into trackable affiliate links.
Founded in 2007, Skimlinks has counted big publishing brands such as Hearst, Condé Nast and Gawker Media among its clients.
Iyad Omari, a partner at Frog Capital, highlighted Skimlinks’ “incredibly efficient technology and deep commerce insight” as key reasons behind the decision to back the business.
