AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 23, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- New Knowledge, an authentic internet company, today announced a rebrand, and is now named Yonder. The rebrand reflects the company's expanded mission: to humanize the world's information and deliver on the promise of a more authentic internet.
Yonder helps customers understand what's real, what's authentic, and what matters online, so customers have the confidence to act. Authentic engagement requires a deep familiarity with the content, culture, and motivations of social internet factions. The Yonder platform is the first to map the faction internet, finding, describing, and measuring the impact of factions on conversations that matter to customers.
"The internet has given us the luxury of making values-based decisions. Consequently, we are all under new pressure to be clear about what those values are. This is especially true for brands," said Jonathon Morgan, CEO and Founder of Yonder. "Yonder ensures that your brand's values connect authentically with customers, which is exactly why we are excited to roll out our own new brand today. Yonder stands for our collective sense of wonder and discovery, and the opportunity for a more authentic internet that we see just over the horizon."
In an online environment where only 1% of the audience can shape the conversation, brands have struggled to engage authentically with customers. Many large organizations waste millions to address perceived problems created by a few bad actors, while missing the majority of customers who demand more authentic interactions with the brands they support. This problem has impacted virtually every major company in every major industry, while solutions have lagged behind. Yonder addresses this core problem by helping brands ignore bad actors and focus on opportunities to engage with real audiences in genuine, relevant conversations.
In July, Yonder announced $3M in funding from BuildGroup and Lux Capital. The investment follows the company's $11M Series A round last year, led by GGV Capital. Yonder is hiring for ambitious talent in data science, customer success, marketing, sales, and engineering.
