LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Airpush (www.airpush.com) has been named a silver winner in Best in Biz Awards in two categories – Fastest Growing Company of the Year and Most Innovative Company of the Year. Today’s announcement continues Airpush’s impressive streak of prestigious national award wins after placing #1 in the 2013 Tech 200 list in September.
The Best in Biz Awards is the only independent business awards program judged by members of the press and industry analysts. The third annual awards program was the most competitive in its history, with the highest number of awards submissions and the most distinguished judging panel yet assembled. More than 500 entries were received this year, from a wide array of public and private companies of all sizes and industries.
Airpush is a global organization with headquarters in Los Angeles. Founded with the goal of reinventing the mobile advertising market, Airpush has been on a mission since its inception to create innovative ways for advertisers and developers to maximize their performance and profits. More than 120,000 apps and the world’s best advertisers rely on Airpush to deliver the industry's highest performance, driven by exceptional ad formats and targeting technology.
Airpush’s exceptional growth has been powered by its full service mobile advertising offering and growing clientele of leading brands and app developers. The company recently launched AirDSP, a breakthrough self-serve portal that enables advertisers to run campaigns across all major mobile RTB exchanges and SSPs from a single interface, using the most advanced optimization and audience targeting tools in the industry. Airpush has partnered with Inneractive, MobClix, MoPub, OpenX, Smaato and other mobile RTB supply sources around the world in order to provide AirDSP clients with nearly limitless scale for RTB campaigns. Another recent win for the rapidly growing company was its acquisition of Hubbl, a New York-based leader in mobile native advertising and personalization. The combined company will employ Hubbl’s technology and Airpush’s industry leading scale to create the world’s first comprehensive native advertising platform for mobile.
“We couldn’t be happier about being recognized by Best in Biz in these two major categories,” said Asher Delug, CEO, Airpush. “These awards are more validations of the progress that our company has made over the past three years. They also come at the beginning of one of the busiest product release schedules that we have ever had, making us extremely confident that our growth will continue.”
“The winning entries this year show a high degree of innovation combined with a keen focus on business and consumer services,” said Jack M. Germain, ECT News Network, who returned to the Best in Biz Awards judging panel for the third time. “Often products seek a novel way to repurpose an already successful idea. This year’s competition proves that products which bring new approaches to solving vendor and consumer needs can build a better business environment. This certainly raises the bar for next year’s contestants.”
