19th March 2013. Zug, Switzerland. Digital Capital today announces that it has invested in excess of $5 million in co-owned subsidiary Dream Weddings Ltd. www.dreamweddings.eu

W. Todd Tribell, co-founder of Digital Capital who has also been appointed to Dream Weddings Ltd’s board of directors said, “Advertising within games and apps is a relatively new frontier which will evolve rapidly over the next few years.  Our technology allows advertisers to access brides-to-be in a unique and innovative way.  We are confident that it will be extremely effective due to the way we are connecting the consumer to goods and services without impairing their gameplay or using blunt, intrusive advertisements."
