What is Samy Road?

As Patricia Ratia herself explained to us a few months ago, «SamyRoad is a content platform where the user can discover content of their passions (fashion, music, art…) in an organized way. We ensure that this content is of quality because the creators have been previously validated. They are a community of bloggers, designers, artists, photographers, athletes, etc. They expose their content and we give them access so that they can work with different national and international brands and from different sectors of activity, starring branded content campaigns.

SamyRoad carried out a powerful international expansion plan in 2017, thanks to which the company managed to triple its turnover and achieved a positive EBITDA (gross operating result). In just 5 years, this Spanish company, founded by three young people passionate about influencer marketing, has reached 26 markets, and currently has offices in Madrid, New York, Lisbon and Mexico. SamyRoad has carried out 270 campaigns for 75 brands and has worked with a total of 2,500 influencers from all over the world.
