Mavish is a viral content website which crafts viral campaigns for companies and distributes them to a community of around 3.5 million monthly users.[2] Mavish.com was founded in 2013 by Tomas Dueñas Uribe (who is also the cofounder of Carros.com.co). Mavish is headquartered in Bogotá.[3]

Mavish was ranked as the number two startup in Colombia after two months of being online.[4] Mavish won the Innpulsa - MassChallenge startup competition in Boston [5] and will[when?] represent Colombia at the Boston MassChallenge, the world's largest startup accelerator and competition.[6]

Homepage content[edit]

The Mavish homepage consists of curated articles that are becoming viral all over the web. These posts are usually either a video, image, or link. These posts attempt to distill the web's virality and present it to the audience in a snapshot.

Mavish Viral Campaigns[edit]

Companies can connect to a young and socially active audience through native advertising campaigns within Mavish. The pricing depends on the targeted reach and includes the crafting of the viral articles themselves. A similar model is successfully used by Buzzfeed where their campaigns begin at 100K USD and on track to net them 60 Million during 2013.[7]

Mavish Startup Program[edit]

Mavish is currently offering its Viral Campaigns as part of their startup acceleration process. Tech startups from all around the world apply to become part of the Mavish Startup Program and get access to Mavish Viral Campaigns and mentorship.[8]
