About Me

Hi, I’m Eric.

For nearly two decades, my work has been in the world of marketing and advertising technology. As an entrepreneur, the company I co-founded was acquired by a publicly traded firm for $180 million.

Adexchanger said, “if you work in ad tech, you’ve probably crossed paths with Eric Franchi.” I’ve been called a “high-profile figure” in the industry by the Wall Street Journal and highlighted as being among a “cadre of high-profile NYC-based angels and advisors” by Gartner.

These days I’m mostly focused on investing, advising and consulting.

Each weekend I send a newsletter on media and marketing called The IO. It’s a collection of what I’ve been reading. You can sign up here.

You can also find me on Twitter, where Business Insider called me one of the “best people to follow in advertising”.

I am married and live with my family in New Jersey.
