Welcome to GoLoot
This is an exciting moment!
My name is Lucas, CEO & Founder at GoLoot, a Montreal based mobile advertising startup. In 2020, through this horrible pandemic, we raised a sizable SEED Round to pursue our ambitious vision: go beyond mobile advertising impressions to create meaningful interactions between brands and users.
What does that mean, exactly? Back in 2017, I left my house on a chilly night to play for the first time “Pokemon Go”. One of the world’s most viral mobile games, reaching over 1 billion downloads in less than a year. An app that consumed our lives and the attention of every media for months, before quietly fading out, like any trend in this hectic world. This particular moment made me realize how democratized mobile games had become, and once I was struck with this realization, I couldn’t help but notice every pedestrian, every passenger on the bus or on the subway, billions of them everyday, a phone in hand, slouched over their favorite mobile experiences. And through these colorful and vibrant experiences hid an unexpected adversary, a clear and distinct interruption of these digital works of art, a moment when the playful smile of these users escaped to give way to disinterest, even disgust; mobile ads. Advertising in every format; videos, banners, pop ups, natives, rewarded, flashy, loud, buzzing, intrusive, in-your-face. You can’t escape them, like loud bugs, so you learn to live with them. It’s something the modern consumer is expected to endure throughout his mobile experiences, and we, at GoLoot, asked a crucial question: why?
That’s why we founded GoLoot, to create mobile advertising that matters. To create a valuable experience for brands, an opportunity for them to connect with users in meaningful ways. Our product was built by users, for users; choice, synergy, experience, convenience and value are at the helm of our advertising journey. A revolution in advertising is long overdue, and not a revolution driven by optimism; a simple revolution, anchored in necessity.
GoLoot is set, after years of ideation and over a year of development, to introduce its first product to market by Q1 2021. An exciting time for GoLoot and its partners, but a greater excitement for our team, growing as we speak, that invested nights and days in the continuous (and, trust me, it’s only the beginning) success of our venture.
Without further ado, please welcome our core team!
