"We are thrilled to have been named to the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing companies for the fourth consecutive year," said Yashi Co-Founder, Jay Gould. "As brands continue shifting their ad spend towards digital video, the demand for highly targeted, customizable advertising increases. Our focus on hyper-local geotargeting and transparency meets that demand and has been a major catalyst for our growth."
The average company on the list achieved a mind-boggling three-year growth of 490%. The Inc. 5000's aggregate revenue is $205 billion, generating 647,000 jobs over the past three years.

President and Editor-In-Chief Eric Schurenberg. "You have to remember that the average company on the Inc. 5000 grew nearly six-fold since 2012. Business owners don't achieve that kind of success by accident."
