OverviewSuggest Edit

Jelli is applying the core principals of web advertising, including targeting, ad exchanges and programmatic buying, to reinvent monetization of audio content. Audio services reach 6 billion people around the globe, and support a $40 billion advertising market.

We seek to make buying audio ads as easy as buying Facebook or Google advertising. Our mission is to become the core fabric to power all audio advertising, via the first programmatic audio exchange that unifies linear broadcast and streaming inventory. Jelli has grown revenue rapidly over the last two years, expanding to reach over 245 million people monthly, more than any digital ad network, ad exchange or even the largest web platforms such as Google, Facebook, Twitter or Pandora. Jelli works with hundreds of the largest advertising brands, and runs billions of radio ads a year.
