As it reaches a key moment in its development, leading MENA region online content marketplace has launched an offer of shares in the business targeting individuals rather than corporations.

meantv 25Nov2019The platform was established to accelerate the billion-dollar MENA B2B market in premium TV content, by helping buyers and sellers find each other, bridge language barriers and create what the company says is trust and transparency. Major international vendors, such as Discovery and Viacom Comedy Central, are amongst the 40 or so clients showcasing their content on and according to its business plan, the company is aiming for that number to grow to over 1,000 over the coming five years, as more and more businesses seek to leverage cost-effective market access.

“We are now at a crucial stage in our growth” explained founder and CEO Nick Grande. “We want to make ‘checking in’ an essential part of the day for every content professional in the region – even if it’s just to respond to a message from another member. To achieve this, we need to invest in our platform and recruit to strengthen our marketplace operations.”

The business is seeking to raise in excess of $350,000 and is expecting the share issue to be strongly subscribed, following its expression of interest campaign conducted in October 2019 which the company said revealed investor interest of well over $500,000. Shares are available through the global equity crowdfunding platform, with bids as low as $500 accepted. Over 630 content buyers have so far registered with the platform, representing close to half the market.

Rather than targeting venture capital investors with its initial raise, is focusing instead on the TV industry itself. “We want to our users to benefit directly from our growth. As shareholders, they will evangelise the platform and drive network effects much faster than conventional marketing,” Grande added.
