Today, Inc. released the Inc. 5000 of 2018, ranking the faster-growing private companies in the U.S. Climbing toward the top is publishing and software company AdRizer.
AdRizer, a 5-year-old analytics and revenue attribution platform for open-web publishers, ranked 15th and came in tops among software companies.
Boosting its rise was the company’s recent revenue report. The platform recorded a 12,500% year-over-year growth earning. Its core product, Cortex, uses AI technology to created an automated system that matches high-performing publisher content with a network of third-party media partners, amplifying reach.
The scale offered to ad buyers by premium audience publishers is increased through targeted media buys.
"It is AdRizer's mission to arm independent publishers of the open web with the solutions necessary to successfully compete in a world dominated by huge platform media companies like Google and Facebook," stated Ken Bond, cofounder-CEO, AdRizer.
AdRizer, which counts publishers like Scripps, USA Today, Topix and Dow Jones, among its clients, most notably made it to number 15 without the help of any venture-backed investment, rare for a young company.
Other companies listed alongside AdRizer include SwanLeap at No. 1, and Scientist.com, Velocity Global and Inova US, all in the top 20. A complete list can found at Inc.com.
