The OnMedia 100 represents the top emerging companies that are creating new business opportunities in the world of media, advertising, marketing, branding, and public relations. The winning companies are staring down the entrenched, legacy institutions that have long dominated Madison Avenue and creating new ways of reaching their sophisticated and increasingly mobile audience.

Today’s digital media, advertising, and marketing startups are shifting to take advantage of the trend toward both socialization and personalization. Consumers are demanding a new type of advertising—one that brings the products and services they want to them. Legacy remnant advertising solutions and other broadly focused delivery mechanisms are giving way to extremely sophisticated solutions based on aggregating consumers’ desires and turning them into meaningful, actionable messages.

Each year, the AlwaysOn editorial team, along with investment and industry experts across the globe scour the entrepreneurial community to identify the top 100 private digital media companies that are creating high-growth businesses that offer huge upside potential for investors. The OnMedia 100 companies are leaders amongst their peers and developing radical new approaches and technologies that are likely to push outside the bounds of existing markets. Companies are selected based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

The Eighth Annual OnMedia 100 Competition Has Begun!
To help identify this year’s hottest digital media startups, we’d like your help. We’re looking for the top emerging private companies that are creating new business opportunities in world of media, advertising, marketing, branding, and public relations. To nominate a company to the OnMedia 100, please fill in the qualification form. After successful submission, companies will be notified if they meet our criteria for the next step in the process, the CEO interview.

We look forward to sifting through the nominees to find the most disruptive entrepreneurs who are shaking up online media world and creating opportunity and revenue. Let the competition begin!
