Not much, until now.
Last year was a great year for us at SpotRight. We grew revenue 6x and grew our client base with several F1000 brands and partners. We continued to participate in the rapid convergence of offline and online data, the value of which has been validated in recent transactions like LiveRamp (acquired by Acxiom for $310M) and Datalogix (acquired by Oracle for a rumored $1.2B).
The SpotRight team has worked relentlessly in this data convergence specifically bridging the worlds of social data with offline data and we’re starting to pick up momentum. We’ve grown our graph database, affectionately called GraphMassive, to 300 million scored consumer profiles, 35 billion relationships (connections to both brands and people) which has created one of the industry’s largest social graph databases connected to individual level consumers. We are now working with industry leading brands in CPG, Automotive, Telecom and Consumer Electronics and are partnered with the largest marketing data companies and agencies in the world.
We continued to build on this momentum in December, taking steps to enter the next season of growth by bringing on additional resources and raising additional capital. We recruited two industry leaders to join us who both come from one of the world’s leading publicly traded marketing data companies – Little Rock, AR based Acxiom Corporation. Todd Greer, who led the Data Services division for Acxiom, has taken over as CEO and Brady Gadberry, who managed data driven products for Acxiom, now runs all things Product for SpotRight. We’re excited about this next season of growth and are quickly building onto our world class team by investing in sales & marketing, account management and product development.
My role has shifted to SVP Corporate Development where I will focus my time on raising capital, strategic partnerships and any acquisitions we’ll make over the next year or so. Oh, and we opened an office in downtown Little Rock, AR where we’re finding great people with decades of experience working with consumer data, both offline and online. So, we’re having fun introducing the South to the Boulder vibe and vice versa.
