The Signpost Mission
Signpost is a leading online advertising startup that connects local businesses with new customers. We’re creating a simple solution to help small merchants manage their advertising through a single convenient platform and drive new customers to their front door. At the same time, we’re making it easier for publishers to source ads and daily deals from local merchants.
Currently, we power monetization campaigns for over 1,200 local publishers including mobile apps, directory services, and daily deals sites. We believe we’re creating an efficient advertising tool that will significantly change the $20B local advertising industry.
Signpost is funded by Google Ventures, Spark Capital (Foursquare, Twitter, Tumblr) and a group of accomplished angel investors including Jason Calacanis (Mahalo, Launch Conference), Jack Herrick (eHow) and Thomas Lehrman (Gerson Lehrman).
