What does Neura do? Neura provides solutions for mobile brands that are looking for higher customer engagement. And the platform provides actionable insights based on real-world behavior. Neura’s technology is personalized based on each user’s needs. And these personalized customer experiences drive engagement and monetization.

Neura’s technology is able to gather raw information about users anonymously using a software add-on that is installed on the mobile apps of its customers. From there, the company processes this information and turns it into behavioral insights.

“It has become increasingly clear that brands that understand the real-world behavior of their users will lead the next generation of the mobile economy,” added Neura CEO Amit Hammer in a statement. “This funding validates the importance of contextualizing digital experiences and will help us empower digital products with the intelligence to create meaningful, long-lasting customer relationships.”

Neura is based in the Bay Area of California and has offices in New York, London, and Israel. With this round of funding, Neura will be used for driving growth and scaling customer activity in the US and EU.  Plus the software platform conforms to the global privacy regulations including GDPR in Europe and the regulations in California.

“Neura continues to impress us with their impact to user engagement driven by their unique datasets. The combination of a strong team and an exceptionally constructed product with huge scaling potential across verticals represents one of the most exciting opportunities we have seen,” explained
