Adblade was launched in January 2008,[1] by Dr. Ash Nashed and he continues on as current CEO. [3] The company is headquartered in Somerville, New Jersey[4] with an additional offices in New York City.[5] as well as Buffalo, NY.[6]

Business Model[edit]

Adblade has advertising arrangements chiefly with highly trafficked content providers,[1][7] websites in its network have included Nasdaq, Hearst, The Washington Times, ABC News and Chicago Sun Times.

Adblade predominantly serves the United States and has both online and mobile traffic.[8] Advertisements can be created and uploaded by clients and may be targeted geographically, by behavioral interests or demographics. The system allows for monetizing websites and blogs, though websites must meet certain requirements.[9]


In December 2013, one of Adblade's executives appeared on Bloomberg TV to discuss how native advertising must be clearly defined for the end user.[10]
