Watch out, Silicon Valley. New York City is bursting at the seams with highly valuated technology companies that are beyond burgeoning—they’re firmly grounded in the city’s landscape and laying the foundation of a new Silicon Valley by the Hudson.
Israel’s dynamic tech startup scene is no secret. The country has been called the “start-up nation” for years and, today, only the U.S. and China have more companies listed on the NASDAQ than Israel’s 90 – worth a total of $40 billion. Innovation continues and a new crop of Israeli tech startups are on their way up, transforming healthcare, entertainment, finance, media and a myriad of other industries. The hot startups below have secured funding from investors, and are perhaps, on their way to successful exits or IPOs. Here are 25 Israeli tech startups to watch this year:
Mobile advertising platform StartApp now boasts 250 million monthly active users as well as 100,000 integrated apps.
Do You Have the Emotional Intelligence Employers Seek? a few key factors that go into developing and displaying your emotional intelligence in a job search setting.
Almost all startups start with an innovative product or new approach to the market; that’s part of the nature of having a startup. Very few and usually the least successful ones go with the “me too” approach.
One of the most common problems facing app developers is monetization. StartApp addresses this problem directly, offering clients a host of products to solve their mobile monetization woes.
StartApp hits 1.5B downloads, 70K installs, and 200M daily impressions. Key to being able to generate that level of developer interest is having a strong relationship with thousands and thousands of advertisers and having interesting and creative ad units.
The startup has just announced its one-billionth download, securing the company as a major industry player in mobile advertising and distribution.
StartApp has revealed the brand new 3D AppWall, which gives in-app ads new spunk -- and promises a visually-appealing ad strategy that users won't be able to ignore
In less than two years, Startapp has garnered over 800 million downloads and 25,000 app embeds. StartApp provides a mobile search engine plugin that integrates with any Android application.
As more and more developers look for ways to profit from the mobile boom, StartApp is one company helping along the way, latching onto the opportunity to innovate with new technologies.
StartApp itself came from literally nowhere to being what it calls “the largest independent search distribution network in the Western world.”
With the advent of StartApp, developers can monetize their apps with minimal disruption to the user experience; With over 500 million downloads and 15,000 app embeds to date, StartApp has become a hit among developers.
During the last eight months, the number of apps working with StartApp has trebled to reach 15,000 applications.
This is one startup that stands to seriously aid entrepreneurs and developers as they attempt to make a living off of their mobile creations.
This unique model is a hit among developers because it doesn't alter the app experience – keeping it free of ads.
StartApp was chosen to be indluded in this list due to the fast growth both in the number of developers using their solutions and in the number of StartApp's downloaded.
Instead of forcing developers to charge a fee or add ads, StartApp generates revenue by using search
With StartApp’s ingenious and explosively growing mobile search engine, developers may have finally found a solid monetization solution.
The most successful business models in the virtual world are the ones managing to make a very small income from hundreds of millions of users.
StartApp's product, offering an alternative mobile search, is downloaded about 1.25 millions times a day
Some developers have said that they have generated 10 times more revenue than they were before implementing StartApp.
With the sheer volume of downloads and rapidly expanding customer base (StartApp now integrates with 3,500 Android apps), the solution seems to be working.
According to StartApp's latest numbers, the company seems to be onto something
“1 million downloads proves monetising from search bolt-on works on Android, says StartApp’s Itay Rokni”.
“StartApp is a new monetization and distribution platform for Android applications designed to address the challenges the platform has created in terms of revenue generation for developers”
“StartApp thinks there's a better way to help developers get some cash, while at the same time bringing a better end-user experience.”
StartApp featured on AppBoy: “Startapp Brings Google's Web Monetization Model to Android Apps” “Startapp is now launching a new and interesting solution for Android developers to monetize their apps. In one word? Search. Hey, it worked for Google, didn't it?”
StartApp featured on PocketGamer: “StartApp looks to monetise Android apps with bundled search bookmark” ”with StartApp-generated revenue coming in anywhere between $10,000 and $50,000 should a developer be lucky enough to top the rather lofty figure of 1 million downloads.”
Since its founding at the end of 2010, mobile ad platform StartApp has experienced skyrocketing growth. Known for producing innovatively designed mobile ads that integrate well with apps’ existing functionality, while helping developers monetize their apps, the company’s SDK has been integrated into 150,000 apps and reaches 350 million monthly active users. With mobile increasingly heating up, alongside StartApp’s strong market position and continuing growth, 2015 may be a seminal year for the company.
