About Helixa

Helixa is a forward-thinking audience intelligence and insights platform. We help media companies, brands, and their agencies connect in a more meaningful way with the audiences that matter most to them and identify new opportunities and pathways to growth.


We use public social data and, using our advanced AI engine, transform it to provide research insights into Audiences and Customer Segments, their Demographics, Psychographics, Interests, and Affinities. We look at groups of people, or cohorts, from every angle and dimension to deliver insight into both their hearts (behavior, interests, beliefs) and minds (stated intentions). Our clients use these insights to engage with their audiences in a more meaningful way and they inform every aspect of the marketer process, from ideation to execution.
