SeeSaw Networks Named to Wall Street Journal's Next Big Thing List

SeeSaw Chosen From Over 5,000 Companies With Potential to Make Waves in Digital Place-Based Media

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - March 14, 2011) - SeeSaw Networks, a leading San Francisco-based digital media company, has been named to The Wall Street Journal's The Next Big Thing list, which seeks to identify and rank the venture-backed companies across all industries that have the capital, executive experience, and investor know-how to succeed. SeeSaw was selected from a pool of more than 5,000 companies and ranked based on proprietary data from Dow Jones VentureSource and input from Dow Jones VentureWire's reporters and editors.

"Venture capitalists are always looking for companies with a new idea that will prove powerful enough to explode into the marketplace," said Alan Murray, deputy managing editor of The Wall Street Journal. "The Next Big Thing highlights companies that we believe are worth watching and have a chance to make waves in their industry."

The Next Big Thing is an annual ranking published by The Wall Street Journal. To be eligible for the ranking, a company must be based in the U.S., have raised an equity round of financing in the three years ended Nov. 30, 2010, and have a valuation of $1 billion or less. The ranking was calculated by applying a set of four financial criteria: the track records of success for both a company's founders and management; track records for the investors on its board; the amount of capital raised in the last three years; and the percentage change in a company's valuation in the last year. Dow Jones VentureWire reporters and editors also provided their perspective and expertise beyond the numbers.

"We are thrilled to be named to The Wall Street Journal's The Next Big Thing list," said Peter Bowen, CEO of SeeSaw Networks. "Our leadership position in the digital place-based media space has come from continued innovation in developing and delivering unique, targeted, effective campaigns for top advertisers, and it is great to be acknowledged by such a prestigious group."
