Brainlabs provides a single solution marketing model bringing together technology, biddable agency services and consultancy. Notable clients include leading brands such as Formula1 and TUI.

Founded in 2012, the company has grown organically from one to 240 people in just seven years. It has also been placed 1st in Deloitte’s Tech Track Fast 50, 5th in the Financial Times fastest growing companies in Europe, 5th in the Sunday Times Best Small Companies to Work For, and Master of Marketing Agency of the Year two years in a row.

CEO, Daniel Gilbert, left Google to set up Brainlabs in his parents’ attic, having seen an opportunity to disrupt the marketing industry with an innovative, scientific approach. Since the original Livingbridge investment, Brainlabs has acquired Distilled, a leading SEO agency, and Hanapin, a US-based search marketing agency.
