The London, UK-based startup helps creatives such as models and photographers access job opportunities. Contact will use the seed capital to develop product features and for expanding the platform to different creative verticals.
“Partnering with Rhino Ventures marks a significant step toward our vision of empowering creatives to drive their own distribution and monetisation,” said Reuben Selby, founder and CEO, Contact.

For creatives, Contact gives booking, scheduling, payment and communication tools that remove the need to go through an agent or manager.
Founded in 2020 by Selby, Contact previously raised £1.4 million in a round led by Founders Fund.
Joining this funding round were Founders Fund and Riverside Ventures, alongside Creator Ventures’ Sasha Kaletsky and Cameo co-founders Steven Galanis and Martin Blencowe.
