Kargo is the leading mobile advertising platform. The company weaves award-winning custom content and technology into its portfolio of premium publishers’ mobile and tablet properties, offering advertisers integrated brand experiences. Over 150 companies--among them Meredith, CBS, Spin Media, Warner Brothers and Guggenheim--have selected Kargo to build, host and maintain their mobile sites and apps.

Kargo is unique in that it runs on contextually-relevant properties. Because many of Kargo’s publisher partnerships are exclusive, the company is able to deliver native advertising experiences above and beyond standard ad units. Kargo’s unrivaled product suite includes exclusive site skins, rich media activations, mobile video and social media integrations. As a result, Kargo empowers brands to surpass the traditional mobile experience and improve engagement and interaction for users who actively consume mobile content.

From the company’s partnership with Moat, offering best-in-class brand measurement to advertisers, to its partnership with Grapeshot for contextual targeting, to its partnership with leading DMP Lotame for audience targeting, Kargo’s 3rd-party integrations provide the most advanced targeting and analytics tools on the market.

Kargo is the 2013 Red Herring Top 100 Tech Winner and has won OnMobile Top 100 for three consecutive years. In addition, the company received the the 2010 Mobi and DPAC awards for Best Mobile Website, the 2010 DPAC award for Best iPhone Application and the 2011 OMMA award for Best Mobile Marketing Campaign.

Kargo’s revenue and headcount have doubled year over year since 2003. With offices in Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston, Kargo is privately held and organically grown in New York.

$6.00 CPM
Stellar mobile properties and some great rich media executions. They don't do UA, which is nice since they only have entertainment-focused sites. If I had to fault them for anything, it's that they don't really have apps, only mobile sites.
