Auctus Capital Partners Secures Debt Financing for Storygize for Expansion of Programmatic Advertising Platform

CHICAGO / Santa BarbaraCalif.—— Auctus Capital Partners is pleased to announce its role as exclusive advisor to Storygize, supporting the rapidly expanding programmatic advertising platform in securing debt financing to expand its sales organization and refinance an existing asset-based loan. Funding was provided by Decathlon Capital and State Financial, and the transaction was led by Auctus’ Managing Director Keenan McCollom.  

Storygize is an ad-buying platform specializing in native display, contextual targeting, and dynamic content optimization. Founded in 2015 with roots in native content marketing principles and distribution strategies, Storygize’s innovative ad personalization and proprietary ad-buying technology have been proven effective for large brand advertisers and agencies. Clients that engage Storygize leverage the company’s technology platform and creative studio services to deliver more efficient and effective digital ad campaigns across mobile, desktop, and TV screens. Competing buy-side platforms do not offer the same programmatic technology capabilities, dynamic content optimization tools, and creative expertise.

“The team at Auctus worked diligently to understand the technical and creative aspects of our business and followed through on securing financing terms to support our growth,” said David Osman, Founder and CEO of Storygize. “This transaction represents a key step in bringing our proprietary ad-buying technology and strong creative and design capabilities to the advertising market.”  

Auctus Capital Partners worked closely with Storygize, helping identify strategic relationships and structuring debt financing for the digital advertising platform. The transaction brought in new growth capital and successfully refinanced an existing asset-based loan. The transaction enables the client to expand their sales organization and maintain strong working capital for future product development that meets growing demand in the sector.   

“We are excited to have Storygize as our client, and it was a pleasure working with the leadership through this transaction,” said McCollom. “The company has demonstrated growth that has outpaced the industry average, and this transaction supports its strong market position and enables new growth for clients seeking better programmatic ad performance.”
