Paneau Joins Y Combinator W20

Written by Ana Starcevich

We’re excited to share that Paneau is part of Y Combinator’s Winter 2020 cohort!

“Y Combinator has been an incredible experience! It has allowed us to supercharge our growth and make so many relationships with other founders.” says co-founder and CEO Nader Khalil. “We couldn’t be more excited about the future.”

In response to COVID-19, Demo Day has been changed to an online-only event and will happen one week ahead of schedule on March 16.

Paneau puts tablets inside Ubers and Lyfts and allows advertisers to display interactive content directly to riders. The platform utilizes rideshares to deliver hyperlocal digital out of home ads. Hyperlocal means advertisers can target passengers based on the real-time location of the rideshare. Companies are already using this technology to serve their ads to riders coming from SFO or those catching a ride near Moscone Center. Paneau is currently active in the Bay Area and plans to expand to other cities in 2020.
