In October 2022, ArabyAds, the AdTech company in the MENA acquired indaHash on the heels of ArabyAds’ recent $30 Million Pre Series B funding round led by AfricInvest, which the company had said would be spent on global expansions and acquisitions. With the acquisition, ArabyAds was looking at expanding its global foothold and growth. Starting in Poland in a few years it grew up to have a profitable global business with teams based in London, Jakarta, Warsaw, Johannesburg, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, and Dubai.
Barbara Soltysinska, CEO and Co-Founder of indaHash said the acquisition of indaHash by ArabyAds would bring a lot of value and help the firm achieve its global vision.
“We have come together at a very opportune time. AdTech has never seen better days and bringing industry experience, expertise, and seasoned leadership together with geographical diversity and a superior platform for influencer marketing in the digital world at a time like this is an ingenious feat destined to bring unprecedented success! Our vision is aligned, and working together as a team will lead to significant value creation through sustainable innovation,” said Soltysinska.
