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 the #1 performing native advertising platform helping brands accelerate customer engagement and acquisition. 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.
