It’s certainly great to be recognized for being a leader in your field, and we at Smaato are proud and humbled to once again be selected by AlwaysOn as an AlwaysOn Global 250 Private Companies winner. It’s the fifth straight year that we’ve been recognized by AlwaysOn for being at the center of mobile advertising and monetization.
This prestigious award from AlwaysOn signifies leadership among our peers, as well as game-changing approaches and technologies likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in what’s known as the "Global Silicon Valley". Smaato was selected by an AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on five key criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value and media buzz.
Smaato and the AlwaysOn Global 250 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn's 13th Annual Innovation Summit at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, CA on July 8-9, 2015. Launched in the summer of 2003, the Silicon Valley Innovation Summit is the premier annual gathering of the brightest minds and top entrepreneurs, investors, and corporate players in the Global Silicon Valley. This two-day executive gathering highlights the significant economic, political and commercial trends affecting the global technology industries. Innovation Summit's goal is to identify the most promising entrepreneurial opportunities and investments in the global tech industry.
What’s more, Smaato’s CEO Ragnar Kruse will be delivering a Keynote Address at the Silicon Valley Innovation Summit on July 8th, as well as participating in a debate with Aaron Bell, CEO of AdRoll, and Alex Fedosseev, CEO of 1World Online, about where the biggest growth opportunity lies right now – in AdTech or MarketingTech.
The AlwaysOn Global 250 winners were selected from among thousands of domestic and international technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. We’re once again happy and proud to be recognized for our achievements.
