“We are proud to have IN Venture and Continental join us and are excited about their and MizMaa’s investment in our company, intended to drive greater momentum and growth for our business,” said Ofer Tziperman, CEO of Anagog. “Especially during this global, challenging period, we continue to revolutionize the way companies understand their customers and deliver hyper-personalized experiences based on physical world behavior. The new investment will play a significant role in enhancing our capabilities and future technology offerings. It will help us address the increasing demand for better personalization capabilities and position Anagog as the leader in ‘edge-AI.’ With our investors’ support, we will change the way companies reach, connect with and create meaningful relationships with consumers around the world, providing them with seamless customer experiences and bulletproof privacy.”

“MizMaa is excited to continue supporting the strong team at Anagog,” said Isaac Applbaum, Managing Partner at MizMaa Ventures. “Given the global privacy regulation tsunami, we believe that no business will be able to compete without adopting a privacy-by-design solution, and Anagog is standing ready to provide such a deep-tech solution.”
The Series C investment will help Anagog bolster its global sales and delivery capabilities as well as leverage the funds to support the core R&D team – including several new product innovations that will be revealed in the coming months. As the industry currently grapples with unclear changes ahead, these additions will serve as the missing link needed to provide accurate views of real-time and real-world customer insight as they emerge out of the current crisis. At the same time, this will offer richer, contextual services that create a unique and enhanced user experience. It will be pivotal in further setting Anagog apart from competition and serving as a catalyst to disrupt the way companies reach and connect with their core audiences, now and in the future.
Anagog is reinventing real-world personalization. As a global pioneer of edge-AI, Anagog utilizes its JedAI suite of products to enable mobile phones to understand users’ real-world behaviors (micro-segments) and real-time context (micro-moments). Our patented privacy-by-design approach allows the phone to pull hyper-personalized and contextualized offerings from the marketer’s cloud without disclosing the user’s personal data. Accordingly, companies can craft the most personal customer experience for each individual customer and significantly increase engagement.
