The Big Idea

Krux was founded with the conviction that real-time consumer data, responsibly collected and managed, will one day oxygenate not just advertising, but also content, commerce, collaboration, teaching, healing, inventing, building, negotiating, and learning. 

The Internet's first wave centered on the flow of bits, bytes, keywords, texts, email, and digital content of all kinds.  The next wave is about knowledge and discovery, energized by intelligent, always-on services that make sense of the flood of data flowing across IP-enabled devices. 

Krux is building a pervasive power grid for the internet that intelligently, safely connects consumer web data on a just-in-time basis to events, places, and devices where it can drive more productive, valuable experiences for users.

History

Krux was founded in early 2010, focused on building data fabric for the consumer web. The company spent its first six months in stealth development, building out its cloud-scale backend for the collection, management, and analysis of consumer web data. The company’s public launch was in August 2010, with the release of its comprehensive Audience Data Control platform. Krux has gained significant market traction, with dozens of companies adopting its solutions in the US, EU, and Asia.

Krux is privately held, and its initial funding was completed in May 2010, led by Mike Galgon, founder of aQuantive, and Howard Charney, founder of 3COM and Grand Junction, currently SVP, Cisco. Krux completed its second round of funding in August 2011, led by Accel Partners and IDG Ventures, along with continued participation and support of earlier investors.
