Privacy-First Data Marketplace, Evorra, Now Open To Investment On The FPC Platform
We have another great deal on the platform this week. Clean rooms are, as you know dear reader, a hot area of ad tech. But clean rooms for the most part are an expensive tech layer that often requires expensive custom work.
Our latest syndicate deal company, Evorra (https://evorra.com/), is looking to productise the “clean room”, addressing how the $200 billion plus data market moves into the privacy-first era.
Evorra aggregates. It joins data using strict privacy controls. It segments. And then it pushes into walled-garden environments, avoiding any nasty privacy disasters on the open web.
Evorra enables publishers to monetise their data; buyers get to scale their data-driven marketing across multiple channels.
Think Exelate (a $200 million plus dollar exit) - but in this case wholly focused on privacy.
This is an exciting real world application of clean room technology. You can find more details on the deal here: https://investors.firstpartycapital.com/#/contain/opportunities/manage/individual/01da3705-3649-4259-abbe-8b9b59a15679/details. Get investing.

FirstPartyCapital Investor, Joe Zawadski, Steps Down As MediaMath CEO
Joe Zawadski announced this week he was stepping down as CEO of MediaMath. Joe has had a massive influence on the birth and growth of programmatic marketing, having led MediaMath since 2007.
Joe is an active angel investor in our space and has backed some of the most successful companies in the space.
The FirstPartyCapital team have worked with Joe over the past decade, and we would like to salute the great man for his achievements. We are pretty sure this is the beginning of another epic chapter, as he is a GP at investment firm, Aperiam Ventures.
Important side note: Joe is also an investor at FirstPartyCapital. You too can join Joe and over 150 peers by investing in the FPC fund. We will be closing access at the end of this quarter - and remember that the threshold is now $25K to join.
