What is Simulmedia?
Simulmedia, Inc., is a New York based marketing technology company founded in 2008. Through its market-leading VAMOS platform, Simulmedia is the only company that can provide advertisers the reach and resonance of linear television combined with the targeting and performance of digital media. Using VAMOS’s intelligent audience optimization engine, Simulmedia plans and activates TV campaigns to reach the most profitable audience segments, including those built upon an advertiser’s CRM file, or DMP. VAMOS is powered by a single source massively scaled data-set that blends viewing behavior with actual purchase data, thus making possible the direct attribution of sales to TV ad exposure. Unique to Simulmedia, this capability can be extended to other business outcomes such as app downloads, website visits, or TV tune-in.
Based in the beautiful Flatiron area of New York City, we’re a start-up founded by serial entrepreneur Dave Morgan and funded by investors Union Square Ventures, Avalon Ventures, Valiant Capital, and Time Warner.
