About Venatus

Venatus is a global provider of advertising solutions to the gaming and entertainment sector, offering a range of products and services to both advertisers and publishers looking to boost their advertising performance.


From colleagues to founders

Matt Cannon & Rob Gay first built a working relationship while working in AdTech in 2008.


A gap for gaming

From their experience, a notable gap was seen to provide solutions for the gaming industry. And, after a few notes written on napkins in the pub, Venatus was founded in 2010. 


Starting to take flight

After a few successful first years, the decision was made to expand globally, opening regional offices in the US and Australia.


Gaming goes mainstream

In 2018/19 the rise of freemium gaming brought a boom to the industry. Games like Fortnite now reaching mass markets and cross devices created a huge opportunity to explain the power of gaming media to the wider advertising industry.


An electrifying investment

Livingbridge, one of the UK’s leading mid-market private equity investors, announces its investment in Venatus. The investment supported Venatus in establishing itself as the largest global gaming ad specialist – facilitating its ambitious growth plans in the US, taking the business to new geographies, and heavily investing in its proprietary technology.


To infinity and beyond...

Now, Venatus employs over 120 people, providing solutions and signing deals with the biggest publishers in the world, such as EA, Rovio & FUTBIN. The global sales team enjoy having direct relationships with leading brands and advertisers from agencies such as Publicis, Omnicom and more, running over 900 directly sold campaigns each year for the likes of LEGO, PlayStation and Disney.
