M-Brain was founded 1999 by its long time CEO Marjukka Nyberg as a working team focused on media measurement and analysis.
Digitalization, the growth of internet and the explosion of social media demanded a more effective way of collecting media data than manual reading. M-Brain developed its first generation search engine in 2000-01 to meet this challenge. Using the newly designed cross-language search engine the company started to offer its clients web-based media monitoring
2006 M-Brain attracted its first outside investor, when Veraventure acquired a minority stake in the company
2007 M-Brain took a quantum leap in its technology development, hiring an experienced researcher, Kimmo Valtonen, from one of the leading machine learning and semantic search research groups in the world. He took the lead in M-Brain’s R&D, building an agile leading-edge team of world-class applied machine learning researchers and top-skilled developers
