What is Shocase?

Shocase is Marketing’s Professional Network. Built to feature, connect and promote marketing professionals from all disciplines, Shocase functions seamlessly as a social network, professional crowd-sourced marketing archive and personalized online portfolio. Most importantly, Shocase is the place marketers come to discover and be discovered by the people who can advance their business and careers.

What big problem does the company solve?

Shocase is the first social network designed specifically for professionals in the $2 trillion global marketing sector. Until now, there hasn’t been a dedicated vertical network for the world’s 100+ million marketers to display their work and be discovered by those who need their expertise.

What are the key features of the network?

Shocase is the first social network designed specifically for professionals in the marketing sector that helps members get noticed, stay informed and build business.

  • Shocase’s powerful interface enables people to display their best work and credit their team. By acknowledging their collaborators, Shocase members enhance their professional credibility and multiply their visibility within the network (e.g. the more Projects and Team Members they add on Shocase, the more pages on which will appear). This feature grows the network and creates “viral visibility” for members.
  • The Shocase News Feed keeps members up-to-speed on the latest developments in their network, industry trends, areas of interest, new project postings, job changes and updates on the colleagues they follow.
  • Members can pitch new business by easily sending samples of their work to potential clients directly from Shocase.

Where is Shocase located?

Shocase is based in San Francisco.

What industries does the company target?

How big is the market opportunity?

There are over 100 million marketing professionals across the globe that spend over $2 trillion dollars annually.

Who are some of the company’s customers?

How is the company financed?

Shocase is privately funded and has raised $19M to date.

Who are the company’s founders and key team members?

Ron Young, founder and CEO, has a proven business track record with more than 30 years of experience as an entrepreneur and marketing leader. He previously held prominent marketing roles at Levi’s, CVS and Electronic Arts, and was founder or CMO of three companies that achieved nine-figure exits. CTO Dave Burgess is formerly Chief Architect of Global Advertising Solutions at Yahoo! and leads Shocase’s Engineering Team.
