Neeva was founded by Sridhar Ramaswamy (ex-SVP of Ads at Google) and Vivek Raghunathan (ex-VP of Monetization at YouTube). They met in the early days of search ads at Google, and came up with the idea for Neeva over hikes and coffee.

In the news

“Neeva is a search engine that looks for information on the web as well as personal files like emails and other documents. It will not show any advertisements and it will not collect or profit from user data.”

“We wanted to go back to a simpler canvas for our product. We said we want a product that serves our customers. To us that meant that we would never show ads, and we would never ever monetize by other means.”

“Perhaps in the ultimate rebellion against his former employer, Sridhar Ramaswamy, once head of Google’s $115b advertising arm, has founded a new search engine that neither shows ads nor profits from user data.”
