We’re thrilled to let you know that we’ve been shortlisted for the prestigious National Tech Awards for the category Startup Tech Company of the Year!

We’re competing for the title against nine other startups, including Adapttech, Flock and Siren. See the full 2020 shortlist here

The awards show, currently in its fourth year, is the most comprehensive celebration of UK technology in the year. Last year, the winner of Startup Tech Company of the Year was lead management platform, Databowl.

Datasine, which was founded in 2015, earned its position in the awards by pioneering an innovative AI platform that uses Content Atomisation to unearth hidden creative data from past campaigns and use it for powerful insights, predictions and augmented marketing. By analysing this previously-overlooked form of data, brands can supercharge conversions by up to 59% while building stronger connections with and personalising messaging for their audience.

The results will be announced on 7 May 2020 at the Awards Gala Dinner in London Marriott Hotel, Grosvenor Square. 

The whole team at Datasine wishes good luck to our competitors (but we can’t pretend we’ve not got our fingers crossed that we’ll be going home with the trophy!).

We’re absolutely thrilled to reveal that Datasine have embarked on a journey to become channel partners with tech colossus Google. 

Our ultimate goal is to introduce an integration to Google Display Network on our AI platform, Connect. This will allow clients to apply our predictive technology on their Google Display creatives using their Google accounts’ engagement data.

The journey is part of Google’s EMEA Marketing Innovation Programme (MIP), a six-month long incubation programme for tech companies Google believes have the potential to shape the future of marketing. 

“We’re very excited that Google sees opportunity in our technology and wants to support us in developing our platform,” said Jergan Callebaut, Lead Strategist at Datasine. “After developing our Facebook Ads integration, an integration with Google’s Display Network is the next logical step. Our current users are also excited to use this for their marketing efforts.”

What is the programme?

Google uses the MIP programme to support tech startups on a journey to accelerate by developing marketing and advertising products that help them reach new customers. 

It has two key objectives: To develop a working prototype of Google Ads API integration and successfully test it with customers, and to set up a scalable customer acquisition model. 

At the end of the programme, successful companies have the chance to join the tech-focused Google Partners programme, which will provide ongoing support.
