San Francisco, CA - May 22, 2018 – InMobi, the world’s largest independent mobile advertising platform, today announced it was named on the 2018 CNBC Disruptor 50 List, the sixth annual list of the most ambitious and innovative companies representing breakthrough ideas from all over the world.

InMobi ranked at number 41 and was selected amongst a pool of more than 980 forward-thinking and ambitious private companies whose innovations are changing the world. With the company’s latest acquisition of AerServ in early 2018, its global scale and reach across the U.S., China and APAC, InMobi has experienced rapid growth and has continued its investment and commitment to creating new and innovative products, with a mission to deliver next-generation technology to disrupt the mobile advertising and marketing industry. The disruption that InMobi brought to mobile advertising will soon move into the world of television where InMobi’s mobile expertise can be applied to premium TV content.

The CNBC Disruptor 50 is an annual list of private companies that are shaking up the landscape and threatening the status quo in their respective industries. The CNBC Disruptor 50 was selected by CNBC and editorial staff using a proprietary blend of quantitative and qualitative information submitted by the 981 nominated companies. Disruptor 50 data partners PitchBook and IBISWorld provided additional quantitative input. CNBC’s Disruptor 50 Advisory Council, a group of 52 leading thinkers in the field of innovation and entrepreneurship, weighted the quantitative criteria and provided additional analysis of qualitative information.

“We’re honored to be featured on CNBC’s Disruptor 50 List as this further validates InMobi’s mission to disrupt the industry through innovation,” said Naveen Tewari, Founder & CEO at InMobi. “InMobi is revolutionizing the adtech and martech industry through our initiatives in artificial intelligence and machine learning, which sit at the company’s core. Innovation and transparency isn’t something that can be done once - it constantly evolves over time through advances in technology and we embed this into the heart of everything we do.”

“It’s great to see InMobi achieve such a great accolade. The mobile adtech and martech industry continues to see significant disruption and as one of the top players across the globe, InMobi is well positioned to lead that charge. InMobi has come out on top in a crowded industry which has seen a lot of consolidation over the last couple of years,” said Justin Wilson, SoftBank's Board Member for InMobi. “The team has demonstrated true innovation since day one, and is part of a small and elite group of companies who are actively working to disrupt the industry.
