We Grow Businesses Through Partnerships Around the World


Our Story

Our CEO, Ian Weingarten, led Corporate Development & Partnerships at Yahoo after spending a career in private equity. His ~100 person team was responsible for thousands of partnerships globally across Search, Content, Ad Tech, OEMs and Telecoms. Search distribution was a $2 billion business at Yahoo, and we had large software partners that were generating $75-100+ million annually in revenue distributing browsers and search.

PlayaNext was born out of our expertise and relationships. We secured global marketing rights with several global product and distribution companies to distribute their browsers and search through software companies, content sites and other channels. Our company is one of a few globally who have such rights, and we offer attractive economics and flexible terms to our partners. We also work with software companies to distribute their products through complementary channels.
