Ramp finalist interview

  1. 1.
  2. 2. How do you feel about being named a finalist in the 2010 Tech Awards? <br />Given our third consecutive year of nomination by MITX, we consider the MITX Tech Awards to be ongoing validation of what is important to our industry segment and our ability to innovate and shape the future of this segment. It is also an honor to be part of the select group of companies that are recognized by MITX.<br />
  3. 3. If you could describe your innovation in one succinct sentence, how would you describe yourself?<br />RAMP MetaQ is a unique 'hyper-targeting' engine for contextual advertising and content recommendations.<br />
  4. 4. How was your company founded, and what inspired its creation?<br /> <br />RAMP was founded on the premise that tremendous inefficiencies exist in web publishing, given the rapidly advancing scale of web publishing and importantly, the absence of semantic capabilities of the web. RAMP Content Optimization technologies and solutions are designed to address these limitations through making content publishing intelligent to users' search and browsing behavior for large and dynamic online publishing environments.<br />
  5. 5. What makes your company different from other companies in your market space?<br />Our ability to offer scale and precision is unique - our technology can deliver to the requirements of extremely large publishers using automated solutions. As a result of automation and the flexibility of our solutions, we do so without disrupting publishers’ existing workflows or operations, by offering our solutions in a SaaS (Software as a Service) environment with easy integration capabilities.<br />
  6. 6. What has been your company's greatest accomplishment in the past year?<br />We have had compounded growth, doubling in revenue. We continue to enjoy a high renewal rate that speaks to our value proposition and overall customer satisfaction. We have also added major names to our customers. Over the past year, we also closed a major funding round led by Peacock Ventures, the investment arm of NBCU, who are also one of our major customers.<br />

  8. 8. What is your greatest asset?<br />In addition to the unique talents of our team, we spun out of BBN with 19 patents in speech-to-text and natural language processing that were the result of 10 years and $100M in research. This is a tremendous barrier to entry for anyone looking to replicate what we do and to the level that we do.<br />
