Blockthrough is excited to be named a winner of the 2021 Deloitte Companies-to-Watch award. This award spotlights emerging companies that exhibit strong growth and show potential to be a future candidate for the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 award.
“Being acknowledged as a “Company-to-Watch” by Deloitte is a tremendous honor for us,” said Marty Krátký-Katz, Co-founder and CEO of Blockthrough. “Our team works tirelessly to provide web publishers with innovative solutions to monetize their ad-sensitive audience with a better, lighter ad experience. This ultimately helps keep the internet free to use. We’re incredibly proud of our team for this achievement.”
Companies-to-Watch winners are new companies headquartered in Canada, demonstrating superior technology, effective management experience, and common traits of Deloitte Technology Fast 50 award winners. To be eligible, candidates must also devote a significant portion of their operating revenues to creating proprietary technology or intellectual property.
Blockthrough created a proprietary filtering technology to serve a lighter ad experience compliant with the Acceptable Ads Standard to opted-in adblock users. Blockthrough’s technology team is led by Matt Kendall, co-creator of Prebid.js—the world’s most widely used header bidding wrapper. As a technology-focused company, Blockthrough continues to invest heavily in R&D to drive better results for our client publishers.
“With great pride, we wish to congratulate this year’s Companies-to-Watch winners,” stated Anders McKenzie, partner and national leader for the Technology Fast 50 program at Deloitte Canada. “Their growth trajectory and ability to thrive through uncertainty, particularly during these turbulent times, have set these organizations apart and established them as an emerging cohort of tech leaders in Canada.”
