Yieldmo is a mobile advertising technology company based in New York, New York.[1] Mike Yavonditte, Teddy Jawde, Todd Coleman and Rick Eaton founded Yieldmo in 2012. Yavonditte is the company's CEO.[2]

History[edit]

Michael Yavonditte, Teddy Jawde, Todd Coleman, and Rick Eaton founded Yieldmo in 2012. The company invents custom advertising units and optimizes them based on reader interaction.[1] The founding team also built Quigo Technologies, a contextual ad network, which was acquired by AOL in 2007 for $363 million.[3]

Yieldmo announced its Series C funding led by Time Warner Investments in October 2014. Additional investors included Google Ventures, Union Square Ventures and Genacast Ventures.[1] The funding round brought the company's total funding to $22.1 million.[4] In December 2014, Bloomberg listed Yieldmo in their Machine Intelligence Landscape report.[5] In January 2015, AdExchanger listed Yieldmo's Hyperscroller as one of the most innovative mobile ad formats of 2014.[6] Also in 2015, Yieldmo became the first mobile network to run comScore's Media Metrix for its mobile ad network rankings.[7] Yieldmo delivered ad impressions to 105 million smartphones, an audience that only four other media properties, including Yahoo!, Google, Amazon and Facebook, have been able to generate.[8]
