ThumbAd delivers better mobile Click-Through Rates by Contextual Relevancy and Real-Time Targeting, enabled by a solid partnership with cXense, a Red Herring Global Winner (2012). “Real time audience insight, targeting, and measurement play a key role in times where Mobile Ad Networks are squeezed by ad exchanges and programmatic buying systems” according to co-founder & CEO Tor Olav Haugen. “The way we add value to both publishers and advertisers is truly different and to the point, delivering a mix between display- and targeted ads”.

ThumbAd is currently in the market with a private offering Series A to support international expansion and growth, highlighting emerging markets. Technically and commercially the business is easily scalable, and has been proven as a preferred partner by both publishers and agencies in the Norwegian market.
