Aptitude Media, CPA Advertising Network, Makes Inc. 5000


Ranks 1105 on 2018 List, #18 in Austin

Aptitude Media, a digital advertising network specializing in
cost-per-action lead generation and customer acquisition, has made their
first appearance on Inc. 5000's prestigious list of fastest-growing
private companies in the U.S. The company is now ranked at 1105.
Locally, it cracked the top 20 in Austin, landing at number 18.

Founded in early 2014 by longtime friends Tom Ugarte and Chris von
Wiesenberger, the years of hard work, long hours, and fantastic clients
seem to have paid off: Aptitude Media reported 2017 revenue of $6.2
million with just 6 employees, a growth rate of 447%.

"The employees of Aptitude Media all played a vital role in making this
possible," said von Wiesenberger. "We're a very small team, so I can say
with certainty we would not be here without each and every one of them."

Aptitude Media had its modest beginnings in von Wiesenberger's mom's
basement in Summerland, CA. After a brief stint in Los Angeles, they
settled in Austin and began their rapid ascent.

"We are so thrilled that our commitment to providing value for our
clients has earned us such humbling recognition," Ugarte added.
