S2 | #2: Reimagining Data Privacy

Privacy is one of the biggest topics in technology today. As consumers, most of us are aware that companies know a lot about who we are, what we buy, where we go, the information we consume, and lots more - and lots of us don’t like it. But the reality is that this use of data today underpins how advertising works online - and by extension the whole internet economy.

In this episode, we speak with Joe Root, co-founder, and CEO of Permutive. His company is on a mission to rebuild data in advertising, starting with protecting user privacy. Permutive is dedicated to a privacy-first web with publishers at its core. They exist to help advertisers deliver relevant ads, without compromising user privacy and trust. To do that, they’ve had to build some cutting-edge technology and rethink the adtech stack from the ground up.

Enjoy this conversation with Joe Root and Entrepreneur First’s co-founder and CEO, Matt Clifford as he shares how he started his entrepreneurial journey straight out of university with no ad tech experience.
