Video Advertising Technology Company Ranks 314, Up From Spot 732 in 2015, with 1226% Three-Year Revenue Growth
Boston, MA — Pixability, the video advertising technology company, was named to Inc. Magazine’s Inc. 5000 for the second consecutive year. This year, Pixability’s rapid growth earned the company a spot in the top ten percent of the list, within the prestigious Inc. 500. Inc.’s list is the definitive ranking of America’s fastest-growing private companies, and celebrates the nation’s top entrepreneurs and independent businesses. Pixability’s 1226% three-year revenue growth claimed spot 314 — up from spot 732 in 2015 — in the most competitive crop in Inc. 5000’s 35-year history. Pixability’s second consecutive ranking is a testament to its sustained, rapid growth in the US and internationally, and its burgeoning role within the video ad tech ecosystem. As advertisers increasingly shift media budgets online, video is projected to be the fastest growing category of U.S. digital ad spend from 2016 to 2020, expected to rise by 44.7% this year to $9.9 billion.
“The Inc. 500 honor is a career bucket list item,” said Bettina Hein, Founder and CEO of Pixability. “It’s an exciting recognition of the sophistication of Pixability’s video advertising technology, the dedication of our team, and the support of our global brand and agency partners. We are thrilled to be in such great company for the second year running.”
The 2016 Inc. 5000 was unveiled online today at Inc.com. The average company on this year’s Inc. 5000 list achieved a three-year growth of 433%. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue is $200 billion, and the companies on the list collectively generated 640,000 jobs over the past three years, or about 8% of all jobs created in the entire economy during that period. Companies such as Microsoft, Pandora, LinkedIn, Yelp, and Zillow gained their first national exposure as honorees of the Inc. 5000.
“The Inc. 5000 list stands out where it really counts,” says Inc. President and Editor-In- Chief Eric Schurenberg. “It honors real achievement by a founder or a team of them. No one makes the Inc. 5000 without building something great — usually from scratch. That’s one of the hardest things to do in business, as every company founder knows. But without it, free enterprise fails.”
Pixability was also named the fastest-growing private company in Massachusetts by the Boston Business Journal this year. Pixability’s data-driven approach makes video ad campaign management simple and effective, and unlocks the potential of unified, KPI-driven video advertising across YouTube, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Pixability delivers precise audience and placement targeting, ensures viewability and brand safety, and provides clear, actionable campaign measurement.
