About Intellimize

The company was founded in 2016 by an experienced ad tech marketer and two experienced machine learning leaders who had previously worked at Yahoo, Twitter, and BrightRoll.  Intellimize is headquartered in San Mateo, CA, and backed by leading early stage investors including Homebrew, Hone Capital, Precursor Ventures, and Pear Ventures.
