Works for


Cristina de la Peña created Synapbox to avoid expenses in sponsorship campaigns that may affect them in a negative way. Synapbox allows companies to know if the company's strategy will serve well for the audience they want to sponsor.

Before, the companies used mainly small group studies to get the opinion of a few people in the group and to have an idea of the potential of a campaign. Because just a part of the population did the study, the campaign's results could be different from what was analyzed. Another problem that Cristina de la Peña noticed is that people could not be completely honest about their opinions.

Synapbox solved these two problems again with technology. The Cristina de la Peña's company collects, measures, and analyzes people reactions in real time while they are viewing the material that the company wants to launch. It only needs people to have to use a system that is in front of a camera. People will watch propaganda in a natural environment.
