Brainient Raises $1.8 Million To Scale Video Ad Performance Platform

We’ve been watching online video advertising startup Brainient for a little while, given that the online video market looked poised for a lot of growth. Just how much growth was revealed at CES last week when YouTube stood up and predicted that 75 percent of all future channels will be born on the Internet and it had logged a trillion hits in 2011. That’s a lot of potential advertising inventory and someone out there is going to have to come up with some answers to make this work. To that end Brainient has brought round a few people to the same idea, given that today it lands $1.8 million in funding from a number of strategic investors.
