Inc. Revenue Survey: MediaMath Topped $310M In 2013, DataXu $118M

SHARE:

inc5000-2014Startups built on programmatic technologies are among  the fastest-growing companies in the United States, as reported Monday in Inc. Magazine’s annual 500/5000 revenue survey.

Among the notable entries in this year’s list: Demand-side platform MediaMath’s revenue in 2013 reached $310.8 million, representing 490% growth over three years. Its competitor DataXu also made significant revenue strides for the second year running, growing from $87 million in 2012 to $118.4 million in 2013. (However DataXu’s three-year growth rate has slowed considerably from an almost absurd 21,337% last year to 823% in the current report.)

A few other entries jumped out: Independent trading desk Accordant Media raked in $27.1 million (a 1,663% growth rate), and Integral Ad Science, despite having been around for a while, achieved noteworthy growth of 3,232% to $23.4 million.
