Following their graduation from the 2014 500 Startups class (the same program that has given shape to Sunrise, Makerbot, and TaskRabbit) DOZ now joins Start'inPost, the startup accelerator of Le Groupe La Poste.

As part of the first phase of the Start’inPost program which consists of a business pilot DOZ will work with the "Relationship Marketing" Division, a chance for the startup to grow its core service which gives marketing professionals the opportunity to develop targeted and effective campaigns.

For this initial test, 4 B2B and B2C offers of Le Groupe La Poste have been selected to work with DOZ: email and SMS prospecting campaign, e-mail routing, datamining and geo-marketing analysis. All of these parts are then combined on a single easy-to-use platform ( to empower more effective management.

At the end of the pilot project and if successful, DOZ will enter the second phase of the program that notably involves:

  • a longer-term business partnership with the objective to boost revenue growth;
  • custom mentoring over a period of nine months during which La Poste provides material, methodological, and commercial resources along with expert advice to accelerate and broaden the development of the project;
  • seed funding

Launched in 2013, DOZ has developed a platform to easily manage all phases of an international digital marketing campaign (Search / Social / Content) including the selection of service providers. Notably, DOZ puts a network of more than 5,500 marketing experts in more than a dozen countries around the world just a click away from its international clients.


Based in Lyon and San Francisco, DOZ has already provided marketing services to major French and international companies (including Total, Axa, Publicis, and Home Depot) and raised $1.5 million from Kima Ventures, 500 Startups, Nexus Ventures and Bpifrance.
