As Evorra moves into its next chapter of growth with initial client interest across the US, Asia, and Europe, it will use the new capital to ensure its innovative user-friendly SaaS data marketplace meets the workflow requirements of sophisticated agencies and brands. Evorra has the vision to democratize addressable audiences at scale for non-technical marketing professionals, without letting go of privacy. A privacy-first data architecture allows users to license, build, and enable bespoke audiences across the most popular media channels, easily and globally.
As the ad and marketing tech landscape continues to rapidly grow to thousands of tools, marketers are left with expensive and difficult-to-use products. Evorra puts an end to that. Evorra fills the 200 billion USD market demand for privacy-compliant data at scale. It is also built, based on more than 150 co-creation, prototyping, and iterative workshops with advertising, marketing, and media professionals globally. Evorra solves real data pain points in teams so anyone in a brand or agency can become a data-driven marketer easily.
“We are always excited to partner with companies who are taking a big problem and looking to solve it simply,” said Marshall Everson, VP, of Investments and Strategy, York IE. “This can only happen when there is the depth of experience in the team trying to solve the problem, and they are not afraid to look at things differently. We saw this immediately with Evorra’s founding team. The advertising industry urgently needs an easier way for advertisers to take back control of their data marketing decisions without the cost and complexity of legacy or some of the new solutions coming to market. Evorra is that solution.”
