Samba TV To Open Nevada Office


Leading provider of real-time TV analytics to expand from San Francisco base with a facility in Incline Village, Nevada

San Francisco, April 28th – Samba TV, the leading provider of real-time audience driven advertising and media analytics, today announced that it is opening an office in Incline Village, Nevada.

The office opening will help the company expand operations as it looks to accommodate rapid growth.  The Nevada office will employ up to 30 new staff members who will help the company expand its capabilities in real-time TV analytics. At the same time, Samba TV is moving its datacenter to a state of the art facility at Supernap in Las Vegas to take advantage of the favorable business climate in Nevada and desirable, natural disaster-free geography.

Founded in 2008 by Ashwin Navin and David Harrison, Samba TV will still maintain its current San Francisco office, located at 301 Brannan Street.

The announcement was made in conjunction with The Economic Development Authority of Western Nevada (EDAWN), which helped facilitate the move.

Ashwin Navin, President and CEO of Samba TV remarked, “With an attractive cost of living, world-class infrastructure and easy access to all the key markets across the country, Northern Nevada gives us an ideal place for key employees to be based and to attract new hires. We look forward to being a part of the business community in a State that provides a great platform for growth companies.”

“Samba TV’s expansion to Incline Village, Nevada is exciting and a confirmation that this is a great place for business and is among the rising trend of technology companies that are moving to the region”, said Mike Kazmierski, President and CEO of EDAWN. “Nevada provides an opportunity for companies like Samba to grow their business and where their employees enjoy a quality of life that is truly unique.”
