Our vision

Dataseat was created by ad-tech veterans who wanted to solve some of the biggest challenges in the industry: giving app developers and agencies the tools to leverage programmatic in the privacy-first world, with complete control and transparency into campaigns and financials.

Mobile privacy experts

Dataseat’s co-founder David Philippson was among the first to predict the deprecation of IDFA and build a future-proof mobile DSP relying on contextual signals for targeting. Dataseat became the pioneer in relying on privacy first targeting and attribution for mobile UA and the longest standing expert in Apple SKAd Network. 

Acquisition by Verve Group

In 2022 Dataseat was acquired by MGI and became part of the Verve Group adtech ecosystem, enabling cross-business and cross-tech collaborations across MGI-owned SSPs, DSPs, data and gaming businesses for driving better client outcomes.


Dataseat closed seed funding in December 2019, raising $3.7m from Play Ventures, Backed.vc and SAATCHiNVEST.
