Email a Friend Friend's email: * Send Online advertising platform Azullo has closed its third institutional funding round by linking up with Enterprise Ventures. Viewing: Azullo helps with ‘banner blindness’ – people ignoring online adverts Date: 21 October 2013 Article: News Investment firm Enterprise Ventures has backed Lancaster-based Azullo through Lancashire's Rosebud Fund, which it manages. The six-figure funding injection has been made so that Azullo can continue to develop the market for its Respond advertising platform, which helps with the effectiveness of ad campaigns. The contribution from Enterprise Ventures is the third time that Azullo has taken on equity support. In September 2011, The North West Fund for Digital & Creative joined angel investor Joel Rosenblatt as the company's first backers. An undisclosed Series B transaction in March 2012 saw the Digital & Creative fund and Joel Rosenblatt joined by John Lyon and Chris Frost. Founded by Guy Cookson and Andrew Dobson in 2009, Azullo's Respond service has been taken up by publishers including the New Statesman. Paul Taberner, investment director at Enterprise Ventures, comments, 'Major online publishers are looking for ways to increase their advertising revenue whilst recognising that the readers are becoming more discerning in the way they view online content. 'Respond helps them do this and offers a better advertising solution for all concerned – for publishers, advertisers and for consumers who are tired of having their browsing interrupted by intrusive adverts. ' The Rosebud fund, which is backing Azullo, is a finance package supporting Lancashire businesses and is managed by Enterprise Ventures on behalf of Lancashire County Developments, which is the county council's economic development company.
