Mobile advertising startup Adelphic Mobile raises $10 million Series A from Google Ventures and Matrix Partners. By Angie Chang (Co-Founder & Editor-in-Chief, Women 2.0)
The funding will be used to accelerate product development and scale the Boston-based mobile advertising startup. Adelphic Mobile's product targets ads in real-time by analyzing signals to identify customers, including age, gender, time and place - not just their device and network.
CEO Jennifer Lum states, "Our goal is to change the vast 'dark supply' of anonymous mobile impressions into rich, audience-specific inventory for brands and media owners."
We look forward to watching mobile entrepreneurs like Jennifer Lum (along with Aquto CEO and founder Susie Kim Riley of Aquto, Smaato co-founder Petra Vorsteher and Drawbridge CEO and founder Kamakshi Sivaramakrishnan) change the ratio at male-dominated mobile tech conferences.
