Our Story

Brought together by their passions for science and entrepreneurial aspirations, StackAdapt founders Ildar Shar, Vitaly Percherskiy, and Yang Han founded one of the most disruptive advertising platforms in 2013. Under their leadership and vision, StackAdapt is more than an advertising platform, it's a hub of innovation, imagination and creativity.  As one of the fastest growing tech startups in Toronto, StackAdapt doubled in size in the last year and continues to expand.

Our Mission

StackAdapt is a self-serve omnichannel advertising platform that helps brands accelerate customer acquisition through real-time native, display and video advertising. Our company's purpose is to fearlessly invent the future. We think that we are in a unique position, given our work in machine learning and data science, to understand the complexity of human behaviour. We believe our research will help us master the art of problem-solving, invent technology that helps solve some of the world's greatest challenges, and advance human existence by transcending our inherent limitations.

Our Investors

StackAdapt has been one of the best native ad platforms we have used to date. A+ client service accompanied by an easy to use reporting dashboard that has helped us stay up to date with what our media dollars are actually accomplishing.

Ash Sanh
Digital Media Specialist
I have personally tested multiple Native DSP solutions and none have been able to compete with StackAdapt's suite of tools, tech and performance.

Todd Meadow
Associate Manager
What I like the best is the support I receive from StackAdapt. It may be self-serve, but I know that I still have experts looking in on my campaigns and catching things I may have missed, or tips on optimization.
