Kristina Prokop on the Eyeota Story

by Dominic Seah on

How did Eyeota become the global leader in audience data today? Kristina Prokop, Co-Founder and EVP Global Platforms, shares the Eyeota story in the Project A Ventures' blog:

How did you get the idea of founding Eyeota?

There is a lot of digital clutter and it can be challenging for brands to reach their consumers online. Our audience data helps advertisers to understand their target audiences in a new way – as real human beings – so they can serve them with relevant ads. Consumers are more likely to respond to an ad that meets their needs. No one is going to care about a holiday offer to Hawaii if you have just returned from one.

Where did you meet as a founders team? What’s your founder’s story?

I met my other co-founders Kevin Tan and Trent Lloyd while we were working at online advertising platform Adify, which was purchased by media conglomerate Cox.

While working at Cox after the acquisition, we saw a surge in programmatic advertising and audience-based targeting around the world. But there was a massive lack in the market for high quality audience data with scale and reach. A lot of companies were based in the United States, and merely applied the same data collection strategies to markets outside the US without understanding the needs of each market.

Eyeota was born in 2010. Chris Sandberg joined us as CTO in 2011 to provide his vision for Eyeota's innovative programming, tools and infrastructure. Today, we are the global leader for local audience data, operating in Asia-Pacific, Australia, Europe and the Americas.

International Women's Day: Close, But Not Quite Enough

by Dominic Seah on

Kristina Prokop, Co-Founder of Eyeota, writes in IDG Connect about why we need to celebrate International Women's Day - and what more can be done to cement our status as women working in the tech industry. 

International Women’s Day marks its 26th birthday this year, and there is indeed much to celebrate.

Last year we saw some brilliant strides forward in terms of gender equality: from Shared Parental Leave – allowing parents to take a year off however they like, splitting 37 weeks of statutory parental pay between them – through to the release of Suffragette, which had a female director, producer, screenwriter and largely female crew. Not to mention the boost of female MPs in the 2015 election, jumping from 22% women in the previous election to 29%.

But we’ve still got some way to go.
