“It really highlights the contribution we have been able to bring to our customers and the industry to date,” said Launchmetrics CEO Michael Jais, in a statement.

LaunchMetrics is the product of a merger between two startups -  influencer marketing firm Paris' Augere and tech-based fashion outfit New York Fashion GPS. The two companies raised $35m and $4m in venture capital respectively before coming together to form Launch Metrics in 2016.

The company is based in New York but hopes to power its expansion into uncharted territories, including Asia, Europe, and the Middle East.
