Founders: brothers Julian and Giles Corbett, both big on games and technology.

Julian, based in Singapore, was running Take-Two Interactive (Grand Theft Auto) sales and distribution in APAC and was looking for a breakthrough solution to market their releases in stores, advertising that consumers would actually enjoy. He soon realized that this was applicable across industries: harnessing the language of games for marketing and insights in-store and providing moments of joy for shoppers became the mission.

Giles, based in London, had run one of Europe’s first mobile gaming company successes and was then developing a global “Over-the-top” (OTT) communication platform. He got two people from one of his former development teams in Europe to hack together a solution, which the brothers took into some key locations around Singapore. They were able to observe shoppers delight and knew they were on to something big.

Team

So the idea for Ksubaka was born, a means for brands and retail to connect, at scale, with consumers - right at the point of purchase thus bridging the online/offline disconnect.

London (Chiswick) serves as Ksubaka’s centre for platform and big data engineering while the office is Singapore manages our 8,000 strong network of displays across 130 cities in Asia, the gamified content creation and campaign analytics.

Leadership

We’ve built a leadership team that’s constructively discontent. Who care about our industry. And the people who are in it.

Over 15 years in entertainment and tech start-ups (RealD 3D, 2010 exit on NYSE). Most recently took Take-Two Interactive from bottom to number 1 publisher in Asia.
