I don’t remember the last time I clicked on a banner, pre-roll or mid-roll ad. I hate it as a consumer.”
To handle this, Mazzaro and his co-founders Nitzan Mayer-Wolf and Andrea Iriondo have created what Mazzaro described as a way to “turn any video into a discovery experience.” They’re presenting the product right this moment at Disrupt Berlin as a part of our Startup Battlefield.
