About Us

See who is behind one of the fastest-growing adtech startups, and discover what made Beatgrid a pioneer in the cross-media measurement industry.

How it started

The story of Beatgrid begins when Leon van Zantvoort and Daniel Tjondronegoro, two highly experienced tech entrepreneurs were watching the Olympic Games, and in between events, they realized how they were being bombarded with irrelevant and annoying TV ads that didn’t match their profiles as a public audience. This made them realize there was a better way for brands to optimize their advertising efforts, to accurately reach their campaign goals and consumers.

After +4/5 years of product R&D, they developed a new passive ACR-based app in 2019, Media Rewards, also known as the “Shazam of ads”, has served the purpose of ending the advertising industry’s “adwaste” by better funneling advertisement money back into the intended audience and helping global brands improve their advertising ROI and better allocate their media budget.

Thanks to our ACR technology software, global brands and advertisers are able to understand if their cross-media advertising campaigns have been seen, heard, and understood.
