Our Story

StackAdapt is a profitable venture-backed startup disrupting the online advertising industry. We were founded in June, 2013 by Ildar Shar, Vitaly Pecherskiy and Yang Han with the common goal of helping brands reach relevant audiences and drive more meaningful interactions with their branded content.

Today, StackAdapt is the world's largest demand-side native advertising platform. With nearly 50,000 publisher sites in our distribution portfolio and hundreds of advertising campaigns running every day, we provide brands with a single access point for the global supply of native advertising.

We believe that the future of advertising lies in building meaningful relationships between brands and consumers through content, and we're excited to help build that future.

Bleeding Edge

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.
