Mr. Mritunjay Kumar is the co-founder and CEO of a digital marketing start-up ‘InsightzClub’, one of Asia’s fastest growing start-ups. Before setting it up in 2017, he held leadership roles at many leading international consumer insights agencies like Nielsen, Kantar, Millward Brown and TNS for 16 years. Managing large multi-cultural teams and working closely with regional & global-level CEO’s was a tremendous learning experience. More importantly, he saw that the consumers insights industry and marketing in general suffered from old-fashioned practices, manual processes, and lack of data.
“The consumer insights industry has collecting data face to face to generate marketing insights. Due to manual processes and high dependence on human beings, the process is very slow. Users may need to wait weeks and months to access these insights. So, data isn’t being used most of the time. We have observed that 70% marketing decisions aren’t supported by any data and marketing spending isn’t as effective as it should. Hence, InsightzClub was founded,” Mr. Mritunjay explains.
InsightzClub was founded to disrupt a multibillion-dollar traditional consumer insights industry.The company does this by applying the power of technology, especially artificial intelligence, to drastically improve the marketing process. By minimising manual processes and assigning major responsibilities to state-of-the-art technological solutions, the company provides highly personalized insights for each and every stage of the marketing and brand journey, for many clients in diverse sectors.

I want to solve significant business problems and create significant difference for brands,” Mr. Mritunjay concludes, by sharing his aspirations.
