Exaget is a mobile-first company that launched its first service at the end of 2012 in Finland. The company’s mission is to intelligently mobilise the applications and services used by consumers and businesses today and create new mobile services that will be needed in the future. Exaget’s first solution is a technology that delivers customised and targeted audio advertisements and other content to listeners based on their profiles.
Truly international and multicultural, Exaget was founded by an international team with global ambitions. The company now has operations in both Helsinki and London and is looking to expand further soon.
Strength in Diversity
As a team, we respect diversity in all its aspects. We derive our strength from the consensus amongst differences in opinion, culture, language, gender, religion or any other dimension.
We constantly challenge the status quo. There is no limit to innovation, and we search for innovation to deliver quality products on time.
We are driven by the success of our customers. Our success will be measured by how successful our customers and partners are.
Shankar, who started his career as an engineer, has worked in various director-level marketing and business development positions at Nokia, Rabbitsoft, Lovedale Corporation and others. While driving the adoption of mobile services in a senior role at Nokia in Finland, Shankar started to listen to radio stations from abroad on his mobile. He realised many of the advertisements he heard were completely irrelevant to him, thus wasting both his time and the advertiser’s money. It was this discovery that gave him the idea to create a technology that would monetise targeted mobile audio advertising — ultimately leading to the development of Exaget.
