Our Story

Andrew was frommetaMeta. Dan was fromgoogleGoogle. We met atpinterestPinterest, where we built Pinterest ads together. We realized that we could unify ideas from ads and search engineering to make all commercial media better.

We started Promoted to match every buyer with every seller across every app. We joinedycombinatorY Combinator in Winter 2021 and Y Combinator Continuity in Winter 2022.

Our Team

We are ads engineers from Meta and Google, and we’ve built this before together.
