Digital communications agency JIN has raised £3m in a funding round which took place in March, amidst the Covid-19 crisis. The consultancy, which was founded in 2012, intends to use the funding to expand its physical offices in London and Berlin, purchase updated digital tools focusing on insight, invest in marketing within the UK, and launch a new legislative and political monitoring tool. Over the next three years, the agency also wishes to build a presence in countries including Spain, Italy and the Netherlands.
The group, which was founded by Edouard Fillias, Alexandre Villeneuve and Romain Boudre, received the funding from CITA Investment, and stated that the Covid-19 crisis had little negative effect on digital communications. JIN says receiving the investment during the crisis only emphasized the notion that digital marketing investors are still hopeful coming out of the economic lockdown.
“It is clear to us that a digital and integrated approach to communication is key, especially during and after the current crisis," said Edouard Fillias, CEO & Co-Founder of JIN. "Our ambition at JIN is to help our clients build positive influence and to support a digital recovery, based on trust and transparency.”
