Affective Logic’s software helps large companies conceptualise, plan, design, produce, deliver and monitor campaigns across multiple suppliers and markets. Its product, Affect, is a unique system that uses innovations in ‘semantics’ to improve people’s relationships with technology.

It operates in the fast-growth marketing technology sector – an industry that is expected to grow in value by 43%, from $22.6bn in 2015 to $32.3bn in 2018.
The lead investor
The lead investor in this round was Dr Thorsten Roser, who has a background in innovation and technology, and a passion for fostering business growth.
The key indicator for me, before I invested in the company, was to see that there was an outstanding, rapid take-up of the product.
