AdOnMo is taking a unique approach to unify online and outdoor advertising using cutting-edge technology. We are excited to join hands with the young and passionate AdOnMo team to digitalize India’s growing smart cities and support the growth of its digital economy.”

Founded in 2017 by Sandeep Bommireddi and Sravanth Gajula, AdOnMo wants to build the Google Ads of OOH advertising. It brings together the best of online and OOH advertising worlds. The startup envisions to empower brands, big or small, reach their target audience at scale, efficiently and effectively. With its cutting-edge hyperlocal intelligence technology, AdOnMo bridges the gap between the online and offline advertising channels.

Sandeep Bommireddi, Co-Founder of AdOnMo, said, “We are delighted to have Alibaba-backed BAce Capital for our pre-series investment. Its long-term view and portfolio of investments in early-stage startups will provide many synergistic opportunities as we expand our operations to other geographies within the rapidly growing media-tech industry.” 

Sravanth Gajula, Co-Founder of AdOnMo, said, “We wanted to take a radically different approach to the problems in the advertising industry. We have invested and would continue to invest heavily in technology advancements and make the Media-Tech space not just accountable, but constantly evolving and contextual. Over two years of our growth journey, we have filed seven patents. We expect further growth through more IP and patents in upcoming quarters.”

With India’s rapidly growing digital economy, AdOnMo is betting big on playing a crucial role in advancing smart city infrastructure.
