LeadBolt, a global discovery and monetization platform for mobile app developers and advertisers, was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Technology Company of the Year – Australia category in the first annual Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards today.
The Asia-Pacific Stevie Awards are the first business awards program to recognize achievement in business in all 22 nations of the Asia-Pacific region. They are the newest of the Stevie Awards programs, which are widely considered to be the world's premier business awards, conferring recognition for achievement in the workplace in programs such as The International Business Awards for more than a decade.
Nicknamed the Stevies for the Greek word for “crowned,” the awards will be presented to winners at a gala banquet at the Lotte Hotel in Seoul, South Korea on 30 May.
More than 300 nominations from organizations across the Asia-Pacific region were considered this year in 18 categories including Customer Service Leader of the Year, Exporter of the Year, Fastest-Growing Company of the Year, and Woman of the Year, among others. LeadBolt won “Technology Company of the Year – Australia”.
Launched in 2010, LeadBolt specializes in mobile app discovery, monetization and user acquisition, helping app developers and mobile marketers thrive in the free app economy. LeadBolt was honored for their technology advancements achieved this year, in particular introducing to the market two new mobile ad formats – Audio Ads with a gyroscopic shake feature, and Floating Ads that offer a game-like immersive interaction for mobile consumers. LeadBolt is the only platform where mobile developers can monetize their apps through every stage of app usage, creating the most user engagement potential within the app.
