Play is Us.

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

Our backgrounds in games, advertising and technology led us to focus on the opportunity to get shoppers to engage in stores at mass scale – at first, we thought, as a much better way for brands to advertise.  As we worked with retailers, we came to realise just how much physical retail matters – to communities and high-streets, whose social focus is so often built around these stores and the bars and restaurants that set up near them; to consumers, even millennial and digital consumers, who still make up 80% of their purchasing decisions in real world stores; and as a direct result of this, interestingly also, to the online leaders such as Alibaba and Amazon.

 

What started off as a means to better advertise in store soon expanded to become a set of products and services to help physical retailers revitalise through an adoption of in-store digital interfaces.

Team

London (Chiswick) serves as Ksubaka’s centre for platform and big data engineering while the office in 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, and the public who use it.
