I am working with an interesting company that is on a mission to revolutionize TV advertising. They work with some of your favorite disruptor brands—like Calm, Fiverr, OneWheel and Chime—to grow their business through linear and streaming TV. This company combines a sophisticated media buying platform with proprietary analytics to turn TV advertising into an automated, digital-like experience.
