Dympol gives consumers entertainment discounts on behalf of brands who underwrite the expense in exchange for taking the credit, and telling their story to a receptive audience. Our mission is to disrupt the $54 billion "branded entertainment" market by converting billions of existing digital entertainment transactions into unique and personal advertising opportunities. Our patent-pending "transactional-sponsorship" approach represents a new kind of ad inventory that can be applied to virtually any type of transaction, and is a viable successor to 'direct response' search advertising. Dympol is Adwords for entertainment sponsorships. Currently available via Dympol's proof-of-concept website (http://www.dympol.com) and AmazonMP3 Discount Toolbar (https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/49129/); Dympol's imminent APIs will enable the company to scale by integrating the service across a network of web and mobile e-commerce and content-discovery channels. Although our initial roll-out ties in to the music space, subsequent verticals include apps, games, virtual goods, audio/e-books, and event tickets.
Our company has raised one round of seed financing, closed initial deals with customers and partners, and is on track to close a second round of financing soon. Now, we are looking for two key internet software engineers to help us move from prototype to our first commercial integrations.
