Our journey over the last three years in North America has been a fast moving race to the top. Our vision and potential as a company is finally being realized. North America is the epicenter of all things SoLoMo and we are proud to be one of the leading US teams at such a juncture.
InMobi started business in the US in 2013 with five people and a dream to grow massively in the US. Over the past 2 years, more than 100 smart and passionate people have joined us and shaped our journey. We now have offices in San Francisco, NYC and Chicago. Our US headquarters in San Francisco is the second largest office for InMobi.
Our first profoundly successful year in North America materialized in 2014.
Not only did the US market become our #1 grossing market for InMobi, but externally also we garnered so much positive attention in the mainstream press here. The year was also exciting because the North America business grew 6X between Q1 to Q4 2014. Also, 20 percent of the one billion users touched by our network come from North America.
In other significant updates, we just moved to bigger, better offices in Chicago, New York City and in San Francisco. Our teams here have grown and we now have all key teams represented locally - product, engineering, marketing, finance, sales, HR and data sciences. We are also aggressively hiring (apply here!) for several key positions in North America including senior leadership roles.
The ability to “Live Your Potential at InMobi”, has launched InMobi, onto a global arena where it competes with Google, Facebook and Twitter for top honours in the market for data-driven mobile advertising. We are playing to win in such an interesting, competitive space but also because the rules of this business haven’t been written yet. This means there exists no playbook to consult, no cookie-cutter model to use and definitely no rules to follow. Rather, the team has every opportunity to create them all.
Today, the world's largest brands, agencies, developers and publishers depend on us to deliver compelling value propositions to their target consumers. The world’s most powerful monthly mobile advertising platform, InMobi has a reach of over one billion unique mobile devices on its network. InMobi is the only mobile-first advertising platform to reach this landmark milestone.
We plan to continue to make an impact in a big way in the US market, so stay tuned for some exciting updates in North America in 2015.
