Tweets/Quotes by Solange Baki:

“We are a global team of brilliant product managers, designers, engineers, data scientists, and many more with the mission to create life-changing moments by building relationships.” 

“You can’t allocate all your media or paid acquisition spend into one or two channels. It doesn’t give you all the flexibility that you need to reallocate budgets, in case something goes wrong.”

“Adding third-party networks onto your paid acquisition portfolio gives you a lot of flexibility.” 

“Fraud is one of the main challenges that we experience. It’s important to have an anti-fraud solution.”
