About Platform Lunar

Platform Lunar is an independent company builder, focusing on Marketing Technology. We develop and use technologies to build up online advertising companies out of Europe.

Our team has a remarkable track record in the digital marketing industry, spanning more than fifteen years. We have founded, invested in, and sold numerous successful companies in the fields of display advertising, social advertising, and search advertising—with over a thousand employees in total. You can find our Platform Lunar offices in the European cities of Vilnius and Hamburg.

Our name comes from the Lunar Society, which was originally a club of forward-thinking scientists. The Lunar Society was known for supporting and advancing visionary 18th-Century inventors. We, as Platform Lunar, similarly help forward-looking companies by providing the core marketing technologies to scale and grow their businesses.
