I caught up yesterday with Farhad Massoudi, the CEO of adRise. The company has focused the last several years building a connected TV content distribution and monetization platform. Essentially helping any video content creator get their content onto any connected TV or over the top (OTT) device with a native app. adRise then monetizes the content with video ads through their ad exchange and splits the revenue with content creators. In a fragmented connected TV and OTT environment with the likes of Roku, Google TV, and Samsung all competing for a slice of the pie, adRise enables content producers to hit them all with their turnkey solution. This has been a great business for adRise, and as they partnered with more and more content creators, a potentially bigger business fell on their lap and they jumped all over it.
