Ogury Announces $21 Million Series C for Behavior-Based Mobile Ads

Next, we have a report that Ogury has raised $21 million in Series C funding. Ogury partners with mobile apps (Android only) to build anonymous individual-level behavioral profiles with “every app or website the user uses or visits the entire day on their mobile device.” Somehow I doubt the consent language is worded quite so directly. Ogury then targets recommendation-style ads based on the profiles. The $21 million was actually raised last year but just announced, and it’s not news until someone learns about it, right?

We’ll see if public concerns about privacy can overcome industry pressure. Anybody taking bets?
