Audigent Makes the Inc. 5000 For the Second Consecutive Year

Data, Identity, and Curation leader is among top 10% of fastest growing private companies in America based on revenue growth

Inc. revealed today that Audigent, the leading data identity, curation and activation platform, ranks No. 507 on the 2023 Inc. 5000, its annual list of the fastest growing private companies in America. Audigent is the 45th fastest-growing company in the NY-NJ-PA area and the 69th in the software industry.

The prestigious ranking for a second consecutive year provides insights for the most successful private companies in America. Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, Patagonia, and many other household name brands gained their first national exposure as honorees on the Inc. 5000.

With 1,155% growth over the past three years, Audigent’s second year on the list places the company among the top 10% of the fastest-growing companies in America. The company continues to outpace the advertising technology industry as well, ranking in the top 10% for a second year within the sector as the 7th fastest-growing company in Ad Tech. Audigent is also the 38th fastest-growing company in New York State.

“Data Curation is undeniably a big part of the future of how data will be monetized and actioned across the programmatic ecosystem,” said Drew Stein, Audigent CEO and co-founder. “We’ve been pioneering new, more privacy-safe and future proof frameworks for activating data that are providing exciting alternatives to our brand and media agency partners and the industry as a whole as our sector continues to evolve. Our sustained growth is not just product-based – it is the result of our passionate, hard-working team’s efforts to build innovative technologies and solutions that move our industry forward.”

In a fiercely competitive arena, Audigent has showcased an extraordinary ability to not only navigate challenges but to thrive. Its ability to remain at the top of the Inc 5000 serves as a reflection of its momentum, products/services, strategies, and the impact curation has made on the industry.

As the largest creator and operator of curated marketplaces, Audigent’s pioneering approach to programmatic advertising activates data from the supply side by packaging inventory and data together to drive maximum addressability, performance and efficiency for media buyers. This process, called curation, drives Audigent’s award-winning suite of PMP products and private marketplace used by some of the largest brands and media agencies and provides publishers with critical monetization tools.

Audigent’s growth in the past year has also included partnerships with many of the ecosystem’s largest data providers, including Experian, IBM, Comscore, TransUnion, Equifax, and Epsilon, all of which have made their data assets available in Audigent’s SmartPMP™, ContextualPMP™ and CognitivePMP™ products.

The Inc. 5000 class of 2023 represents companies that have driven rapid revenue growth while navigating inflationary pressure, the rising costs of capital, and seemingly intractable hiring challenges. Among this year’s top 500 companies, the average median three-year revenue growth rate ticked up to an astonishing 2,238%. In all, this year’s Inc. 5000 companies have added 1,187,266 jobs to the economy over the past three years.
