Modash raises $2M in Change Ventures-led seed round to power 1M partnerships per year & build the infrastructure of the creator economy.

Modash is the creator partnerships platform of choice for brands who want to find and partner with creators, at scale. Marketers across DTC, eCommerce, consumer apps at companies like Bolt, Perch, Wolt, & use Modash because it lists every influencer on earth with aggregated performance and audience data. If they’re on this planet, you’ll find them in Modash.

Co-founded by Canadian expat Avery Schrader (CEO) and high school dropout Hendry Sadrak (CTO), Modash has already become a verb in the influencer marketing teams of companies that put performance above all.

This seed funding will help Modash grow to power more than a million partnerships per year. An important step toward our mission of helping every creator earn a living.

Avery Schrader (Modash's founding CEO) explains: “Creators build and support subcultures. They allow free thought in ways that aren’t possible for traditional, monolithic media organizations. The more novel ideas are shared by individuals, the more effectively we learn, make decisions, and avoid evil as a society. Independent creators' ability to thrive is the antidote to centralized ideas.  [...]  The power of the internet is shifting from platforms to people. Modash is accelerating that change."

The round was led by Change Ventures and was joined by pre-seed investors, as well as notable angel investors Tomas Slimas (Ex-Shopify Marketing Director), Kristjan Vilosius (CEO of Katana MRP), and Akim Arhipov (Founding CEO of Basis-ID).

“We think of Modash as the linchpin between brands, creators, and soon broader society. Sure, the first goal is to help brands find and partner with creators, but this is a complex flywheel that we have yet to see anyone approach the way Modash is. I think a lot of people with a blasé attitude to the creator space will be truly wowed by this team in the next year,”  said Rait Ojasaar, Partner at Change Ventures.
