Founder & Managing Partner, Genacast
From Day One, Gil Beyda has been engaged in technology and has been nothing but successful. He began with a BS in computer science from the California State University at Northridge, and before even completing his degree, he launched his first company in 1982, Mind Games, which designed games for the original Apple II. Combining his technology background with the entrepreneurial experience he had under his belt, Beyda went on to found a few more companies, including Real Media in 1995, the first online ad network and ad server company (acquired by 24/7, it’s now 24/7 Media), then TACODA, the first and largest behavioral targeting ad network, where he was also CTO. The company was acquired in 2007 by AOL, for $275 million. That’s when he got into investing and founded Genacast. He knows tech, and when it comes to adtech, he’s your guy.
