Spade is an ad exchange that connects businesses that want to advertise with brick and mortars who are looking to monetize in real time.

Businesses who are a few doors down to each other aren't connecting. We aim to build a platform to connect these businesses and help them communicate and connect with each other to drive more hyperlocal initiatives and traffic.

Spade is an ad exchange that connects businesses that want to advertise with brick and mortars who are looking to monetize in real time. Businesses can use the platform to search for and partner with local, non-competing businesses who share the same consumer base.

The Spade Mobile app, the B2C aspect of the business, brings these partnerships to life. As partnerships are closed online, consumers can engage with the promos as they “hit the town”, enabling the messages as soon as they enter these locales.

Spade encourages small businesses to offer deals through its platform. In addition, the small business owners who are offering the deals benefit by expanding their customer base as well as foot traffic.
