Bynder just Gavin Belson’d the DAM space
By now you’ve probably read about Bynder’s 22 mil Series A round — or maybe you haven’t, because unless you’re in the DAM space, this probably isn’t earth shattering stuff for you. The key takeaway is that this is GREAT news for the maturing Digital Asset Management (DAM) industry.
Validation in the Market
This is the first “big wave” financing event in the Cloud DAM space. Bynder has set the mark for company valuations, and they went BIG. Because of this, valuations increased across the entire industry overnight. For the HBO Silicon Valley fans out there, just as Gavin Belson acquired Endframe for 250 mil, valuing Pied Piper, Bynder’s raise will benefit the rest of the DAM industry.
DAM is Now a Thing
Because of this, we’re also optimistic the days of explaining that “damn” acronym are numbered. DAM is now a critical part of every enterprise marcom budget. And according to industry experts, it will be a 7.5 Billion Dollar market by 2024. This announcement is going to get a lot of eyeballs in the technology space, and if you’re not currently looking into a DAM for your business, chances are, you will be in the next year or so.
