The Empact100 List is determined by the Empact Academy, which consists of a collection of leading US entrepreneurs. Featuring CEOs and founders from well-respected companies like Zappos, Open Table, and, the Empact Academy selects honorees based on company revenue, innovativeness, growth, and other ranking factors.

According to Adscend Media CEO, Fehzan Ali, Adscend’s commitment to creating innovative content monetization technology and ROI-driven advertising solutions, along with dedication to their publishers and advertising partners, are the reasons why the company was honored in 2013 and 2014 by the Empact Academy.

“We actively communicate with our publishers and advertising partners to make sure that they have the support, information, and resources that they need to be successful. Through these conversations, and from our internal research, we were also able to create some innovative content monetization and advertising solutions. These solutions not only addressed the needs of our network, they also drew the attention of the Empact Academy as well,” stated Ali.

As mentioned above by Ali, the Adscend team is constantly working to help their network partners earn more. The Adscend tech team also continues to grow, allowing the team to enhance their suite of ad solutions, as well as create new monetization technology, quicker than ever before.

“Our continued success has afforded us the luxury of being able to bring in some top tech talent to our headquarters in Austin, TX. Under the guidance of our new CTO Michael Dunn, we are able to create, test, and deploy new content monetization technology and ad solutions at the speed of publisher and advertiser need,” stated Ali.

Adscend’s latest product is AdWall, an innovative offer wall technology that allows publishers to monetize their virtual goods, services, and perks. Fully mobile-responsive, AdWall technology allows Adscend publishers to deploy a comprehensive rewards-based system on their website or mobile app in minutes. AdWall’s sleek design, powerful feature set, and ability to deliver high-converting offers to users that match their needs, has helped AdWall have an immediate impact on the bottom line for many Adscend publishers.

“In less than a month, we have seen many of our publishers immediately increase their network revenues through AdWall,” stated Ali.
