ATLANTA, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Comic book fans everywhere will gain free access to top quality digital comic books everyday through the ground-breaking Farrago Comics App -- a free publishing platform that delivers comics and graphic novels from top creators and publishers; and revenue-generating advertising. Farrago's business muscle was flexed by its recent win of Shared Vision Marketing's Agency Appeal pitch event, created to empower B2C start-ups through strategic marketing and advertising support during the early stages of growing a business.
"We are so excited to win the inaugural Agency Appeal and gain Shared Vision as a valuable marketing ally," said Martin Fleischmann, CEO and Co-founder of Farrago Comics. "This partnership will amplify our efforts to make great comics and graphic novels free and easy to find, and eliminate barriers to a medium that everyone can enjoy."
The winners of one year's worth of marketing and advertising support valued at up to $120,000, Farrago Comics was one of six startups that made it to the finals. The others included AlphaBride, HUX, Reveal Estate, The Pontoon Brewing Company, and gottaGolf.
"There were amazingly talented competitors in the mix," said Doug Jackson, co-founder of Shared Vision and creator of Agency Appeal. "Farrago Comics, by far, stood out because of their innovative business model, capable and seasoned leadership and the sheer grow-ability of the company, among other things."
In its first year, Agency Appeal is the only pitch event in Atlanta that offers high-value marketing and advertising support as a prize for B2C start-ups. In addition to Shared Vision, representatives from The Coca-Cola Company, Crespac, Inc., Mondi Industrial Bags and Davis, Matthews & Quigley, P.C. served as judges throughout the screening process and during the live pitch event.
