Zapnito is pleased to announce that Mark Allin has joined the team as Strategic Advisor and Lead Investor in its final Angel round. Mark has worked in academic and professional media for over 25 years as an entrepreneur and in public companies. He previously held a number of senior positions at John Wiley, latterly as President and CEO.

Mark will be supporting the Zapnito Board on their growth and strategy work as they move from startup to scale-up business. Mark’s experience in both start up and established businesses together with a track record of evolving new digital businesses will be particularly valuable in the next phase of Zapnito’s growth. He also brings experience of growing digital B2B businesses and in developing new revenue streams for academic and professional communities .

"We are very excited about Mark's appointment. We have always operated Zapnito as a high-growth, funded business from day one vs. a VC backed startup. Mark brings a huge amount of experience in both small and very large businesses. Having a senior person work with us on the Board to help us scale is such a key asset at this time. We are pleased to have Mark also lead our final angel round of £560k" Charles Thiede, Zapnito Co-founder and CEO

“I am delighted to be associated with Zapnito and to offer any help I can in the next phase of growth. The future of digital media will be driven by the powerful integration of networks and high value content. Zapnito is at the leading edge of this. It is inspiring and an honour to be working with such a talented team.” Mark Allin, Strategic Advisor

Charles Thiede

CEO & Co-Founder, Zapnito

My background is in technology, professional services and digital media. I co-founded Zapnito due to a number of related observations from my time in these sectors: 1) the social web is creating a huge amount of noise 2) expertise that brands have built up over decades is being drowned out and hidden from those that need it 3) these brands are therefore losing their audience to often undeserving and unhelpful sources, and 4) people are finding it harder to access the expertise that they truly value. I therefore decided to create Zapnito, a white-label platform to help trusted brands reclaim their audiences via expert-driven knowledge networks.
