Postr raises $3 million from NZVIF
Jan. 17 (BusinessDesk) – Postr Media, an ad-tech company which has contracts with Skinny Mobile and Optus in Australia, has raised $3 million from investors including the New Zealand Venture Investment Fund in its first significant raising.
The company builds branded white-label apps, where users hire out their Android lock screens for advertising in return for mobile data or airtime from major mobile carriers. In 2016, it created Skinny’s first white-label app, Skinny Collect, and developed an app for pre-paid Optus customers. There have been more than 60,000 downloads of Postr’s Skinny Collect app and its own direct-to-consumer app, the company says.
