Justin Cooke to Launch New Disruptive Business at ad:tech

LONDON, September 9, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Cooke, who left Arcadia-owned Topshop last week, will present the case for why the marketing industry needs to embrace innovation culture to connect with consumers across a converged media landscape.

Innovate7 has received a 19.9% investment stake from a leading media group and VC funding.

"Disruptive innovation is my passion - I believe this is the most exciting time of our lives and the stage is set for brands and dreamers who are able to capitalise on this moment using progressive technology, experiences and above all emotional intelligence, the currency of tomorrow," said Cooke.

"I'm looking forward to sharing some of my ideas on what marketers CAN do to stand out in the increasingly complex consumer environment at ad:tech London."
