OUR STORY

As one might expect, the origin of Pranos began with advertising.   David Valverde and Nate "Alizé" Allison, both new to Silicon Valley, met on the legendary Sand Hill Road at Rosewood in July of 2018.  David and Alizé bonded quickly in their new ecosystem becoming friends, and eventually Alize joined David & William Stanislaus at their Y-Combinator backed start-up that was focused on selling geo-targeted ads on ride share vehicles.  

Corporations and big brands loved the advertising platform and the company was featured on Tech Crunch and in several international media outlets.  But the start-up was unable to meet the media industry's desire to have a national outdoor advertising platform with only a hundred cars in San Francisco equipped with new display technology.  So, after the start-up ran out of runway, the question became:

"How do we scale an outdoor publishing platform globally in the most cost effective way?"  

The answer was a shift from a B2B advertising model to a B2C model built on consumer preferences and mutual benefit.  Big corporations, artist, and entertainers all want effective communication tools to better reach their target audiences outdoors.  However, to be effective you must be able to disseminate information across large networks fast.  Participants are a vital ingredient to building a strong network, and individuals must be incentivized to ensure continued participation within the network's platform. 

The problem is no solid network exists to publish content outdoors.  So we built one....


THE BUSINESS MODEL

Our founders learned a valuable lesson from their first technology start-up.

All the drivers wanted to buy the system so why pay them to show ads when they can purchase the system and partner with us so we all make more money!  


So, as opposed to paying drivers to display ads run on expensive leased equipment, Pranos developed a less expensive, higher quality display system that consumers could purchase and allowed them to play ANYTHING on it and keep the profit.  

Letting consumers own their HoloGlass and HoloWalls system gives the power to the people.  Our display systems are easily installed by consumers on any windows surface.  Owners can operate their system off-line in private mode enjoying all profits from the platform or users can publish content from The GRID, and get paid directly from Pranos for marketing and advertising across you network.  The GRID allows for screen networking capabilities to increase the reach of your campaign, and for drivers to get compensated for to sending and receiving programmatic ads and curated content.  

Once consumers have purchased the system, Pranos provides independent contracting opportunities on The GRID, converting an expensive paid driver workforce into independent owners and entrepreneurs.  In short: 

The key to scaling in B2B advertising is by going B2C first and then building up customer relationships into partnership marketing job opportunities...

OPP and The GRID

Pranos is the creator of the digital Outdoor Publishing Platform ("OPP"), which is designed to be dynamic, uncensored, mobile.  Our strategy is to construct a new medium for information flow that allows for monetization, freedom of expression, transparency in ad spend, and ultimately, transportation subsidies, as we get closer to the autonomous vehicle age.  Advertising and content distribution on OPP's will subsidize operating costs for transportation and offset retail occupancy costs for tenants.  As scale enough productivity can be gained from content distribution on OPP's to permit free transportation alternatives.  We've often been told that:

"Pranos is the key to profitability in the ride share industry"


The OPP is controlled by the Pranos app.  On the app users have access to money making opportunities on The GRID, which:

  • enables features that allow you to send and receive ads with HoloGlass and HoloWall units and 
  • permits screen sharing capabilities within you social or business networks to increase views 

Stream content with high-definition Bluetooth sound directly from your mobile phone seamlessly, receive live news feeds, exclusive content, and relevant offers from sponsors,, and earn hundreds of dollars in passive income per month while driving on The GRID.

ISN'T SOMEONE ALREADY DOING THIS?

The short answer is, No.  Outdoor signage hasn't evolved since the advent of billboards. Pranos has pioneered the creation of the 1st fully integrated Outdoor Publishing Platform.  Other outdoor publishing alternatives existing, such as bus shelters, taxi toppers, and billboards, but you can hardly describe these options as competition to Pranos display systems.  

Pranos HoloGlass and HoloWalls dominate outdoor signs, taxi toppers, and billboards because these alternatives are:

  • poorly targeted.
    • constrained by limited inventory (only 450K billboards in the US)
    • Difficult to prove metrics and ROI to advertisers with static outdoor advertising

    HoloGlass and HoloWalls are:

    • hyper-targeted
    • unlimited with inventory worldwide
    • able to provide attribution data and detailed metrics to prove effectiveness


    ADVANTAGES OF OUR TECHNOLOGY OVER DIGITAL MEDIA

    As of today Pranos considers any medium that distributes content in the OOH as a potential competitor. This includes billboards, taxi toppers , bus shelters and your missing cat sign on a nearby tree. Even though we are the first to create these devices for glass we are also the first to allow for an everyday person to own a high exposure publishing system for the out of home. This allows for a complete new market in content distribution and ubiquitous scale like never seen before. This will lead to consumers not only earning on the GRID but also to broadcast whatever content they'd like - whether it's their instagram story or their personal ideologies. That is the reason we are also considering social media platforms like Facebook, Tik Tok , Snapchat etc as competitors. These platforms are a place where people can express and communicate and we are allowing for people do bring that to the OOH to reach and even larger audience.


      MARKET OPPORTUNITY

      There are over 1.4 billion private cars and millions of busses in circulation in the U.S. alone with and roads take up about 60% of the city's real estate.  Utilizing our technology to augment motor vehicles gives immediate scale opportunities within the city center achieving maximum visibility for your displays.  In addition, there's over 70 billion sq. ft. of commercial real estate in the US that's rip for expanding our OPP as well.     


      MARKET SEGMENTATION:

      PRANOS has three (3) primary customer segments as follows:

      1. Consumers that drive our hardware sales and content distribution capabilities
