Landmrk receives £225,000 loan from the Greater London Investment Fund

Southwark based technology platform business, Landmrk, has received a £225,000 loan from the Greater London Investment Fund via The FSE Group.

The funding will enable 15 new jobs to be created within the company over the next three years whilst maintaining investment into further developing the existing platform, which is essential for the company as it adjusts to the “new normal” stage of operating in a COVID-19 impacted world.

Founded in 2017 by Seth Jackson as a spin out from his digital advertising agency, Strange Thoughts Ltd, Landmrk enables brands to run promotional campaigns by building smartphone web applications to engage their audiences.

The platform builds the campaign by placing digital content experiences at physical locations on a map in the real world. These promotions engage a brand’s followers, enticing them to find and unlock the experience by travelling to the location.

During COVID-19 times, the Landmrk platform has been modified to allow followers to unlock digital experiences in their own homes, keeping travel to a minimum.

Seth Jackson, Founder and CEO of Landmrk, commented: “With the loan received from GLIF via The FSE Group, we will be able to continue researching options and developing the app’s software to offer the best experience for both brands and followers in these challenging times. Over the next three years, the finance will help us expand our team by hiring 15 new employees to support the development and achieve our growth plans.”

Maggie Rodriguez-Piza, CEO at Funding London, adds: “Seth and the team have demonstrated resilience and determination to adapt their business to succeed in the recent extremely challenging conditions. We are delighted that the GLIF loan will enable Landmrk’s team expansion and fuel their growth strategy.  As we emerge from travel restrictions, Landmrk is well poised to go from strength to strength”
