What is Welect?
Welect is an ad-tech company that enables advertisers to display video ads on the Internet in a user-friendly and effective manner.
To achieve this, Welect develops and operates a technology for self-determined advertising consumption in digital media. Consumers can choose which ads they want to watch on different ad spaces. This self-determination enables cookie-free targeting, a very high advertising impact and ensures significantly more satisfied users.
Welect works with numerous high-reach publishers and delivers very large reach in many target groups. More and more advertisers rely on Welect for successful digital video campaigns.
How did Welect start?
Welect was founded in 2016 by Olaf Peters-Kim and Philipp Dommers. Their goal was to make digital advertising more pleasant for consumers and more successful for advertisers at the same time. And all of this while adhering to high data protection standards. Welect emerged as an independent company that works in partnership with all market participants and agency groups.
