Denver, CO. Startup Grew Employee Base by 200%, Achieved 650% Financial Growth and Added Dallas Morning News, Jackson Financial, and Others as Clients
Choozle, a programmatic ad buying solution that connects marketers with big data insights and real-time bidding across display, social, mobile and video, today announced the company grew its employee base by 200% in 2015, staffing 16 new hires in total. Additionally, the Denver, Colorado-based startup reported financial gains with 650% growth in 2015.
“We have an innovative platform and are focused on a highly scalable industry sector, but our progress to date would not have been possible without our amazing team,” said Choozle CEO and Co-founder, Andrew Fischer. “I am most proud that we have grown our Choozle family threefold in less than a year.” Fischer also noted his company is expected to hire 16 new team members in 2016.
Despite operating in the highly competitive advertising technology sector, Choozle increased its revenue sevenfold between 2014 and 2015 and added more than 100 new accounts each month. The company closed its Series A funding round of $4.6 million in March 2015, adding to $2.16 million in angel and seed investments raised between 2012 and 2014.
“In addition to the continued rapid expansion of the programmatic media sector, we are most excited about the continued democratization of the ad technology space,” said Jeffrey Finch, co-founder, and Chief Product Officer. “Choozle is part of a movement to put powerful and innovative tools in the hands of any and all marketers by making them simple to use. Brands and agencies are responding enthusiastically to this, especially as our platform drives and captures more value for their clients.”
Among the many notable clients, Choozle retained for 2015 are Dallas Morning News, YouConnex, Jackson, and more. The company also invested heavily in ongoing product development in 2015 with the introduction of its HTML5 AdBuilder, release of auto-optimization tools, and advanced viewability and safety filters. Fischer shared that Choozle, named one of this year’s 50 Colorado startups to watch, will be paying close attention in 2016 to providing additional tools that merge programmatic ad buying with CRM marketing, native and social advertising and attribution across mobile, social, video and display.
