NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - May 03, 2016) -
Innovid, the world's leading video marketing platform for advertisers to create, deliver and measure video experiences on any device, today announced that the company has been named a Stevie® Award winner in the "Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year" category in The 14th Annual American Business Awards. Other notable companies recognized for technical innovation include Qualcomm, DocuSign, and PayPal.
More than 3,400 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories, including Startup of the Year, Executive of the Year, Best New Product or Service of the Year, and App of the Year, among others. Innovid was selected in the "Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year" category for companies with up to 2,500 employees.
Innovid has served as a visionary pioneer in the digital video space since 2007. The company was awarded a U.S. patent for its interactive video technology, an invention that involves "inserting interactive objects into video content." Since then, Innovid has partnered with several forward-thinking companies to further push the boundaries of digital video innovation including Roku, Snapchat, and Facebook, among others. Last month, Innovid launched a beta version of its advanced social video solution, enabling advertisers to reach and engage consumers on Facebook and Instagram via data-driven, immersive video content.
"We are thrilled to be recognized for technical innovation by the American Business Awards, and to be honored alongside other prestigious tech companies including DocuSign and Qualcomm (to name a few)," said Zvika Netter, co-founder and CEO at Innovid. "Our mission is to provide marketers with a seamless way to reach and engage audiences on every device while delivering advanced analytics to measure ROI, and this award is a testament to our team's hard work -- across R&D, creative, sales, marketing, and business development."
