Liquid Grids Announces Series A Funding and Appoints New Chairman

Liquid Grids®, a Precision Marketing Platform marketing for the Healthcare Industry, has recently completed a Series A investment round led by Miramar Digital Ventures (MDV). The company has also appointed Daniel M. Bradbury, former CEO of Amylin Pharmaceuticals, as new Chairman of the Board and added Sherman Atkinson as a Director.

Through its proprietary analytics engine Liquid Grids has aggregated and analyzed over 1 Billion healthcare conversations by over 125 million unique healthcare consumers. The company identifies disease-specific personas, which are scaled to deliver highly targeted, multi-channel advertising campaigns. “Closing this round of investment is fueling a rapid scaling of the opportunity we have cornered in the market and to extend our reach across the industry,” says Malcolm Bohm, CEO of Liquid Grids.

“Traditional Direct to Consumer advertising is inefficient and delivers irrelevant information to most people who receive it,” said Daniel M. Bradbury, the newly appointed Chairman of the Board for Liquid Grids. “Liquid Grids is the only company leveraging the power of the social networks to turn DTC on its head and deliver real value to the healthcare industry’s marketing spend.”

“Digital advertising within the health care space is growing exponentially, and Liquid Grids is leading the industry with its powerful analytics and targeted buyer personas and inbound strategies," said Sherman Atkinson, Managing Director of Miramar Digital Ventures. “We are very excited to have added Liquid Grids to the Miramar Digital Ventures portfolio.”
