More than ever, our world, our industry and our businesses need change. For brands and agencies, innovation is no longer an opportunity, it’s a responsibility - and marketeers especially play a big part in helping organisations transition to this new world.

At MAD//Fest this year, we have created a place for marketing leaders to get inspired, connected and equipped to lead change. 

You can book your slot to flirt with the future and meet the startups here (and be in with a chance of winning a pair of fresh new airpods for every startup you date…)

At, we’re passionate about helping brands and agencies stay ahead of the innovation curve. We track and monitor over 12 million startups globally. When it comes to change, we’re seeing that startups are continuing to pioneer the future. They’re inventing new ways for brands to connect with consumers and they’re delivering results in a far more effective, efficient and sustainable way than traditional solutions.” says Jeremy Basset, CEO at

We’ve also created a free Lookbook of the hottest startups who are bringing fresh solutions to the Marketing, Advertising and Creative industries. 

Innovators like: Earthly, helping brands to create a sustainability story worth sharing. Or

Instapanel, who recruit video panellists to tell human stories your brand can see, hear, and feel and Takeaway Reality who create fun gamified experiences on any platform (Including the Apple Vision Pro) and in VR and AR. 

Check out the others in the Lookbook, and wow your team as you bring fresh innovation to the table.
