Marty Weintraub, CEO of Minnesota-based online marketing agency aimClear, was presented the 2011 Emerging Entrepreneur Award during the 19th Annual Joel Labovitz Entrepreneurial Success Awards, held Wednesday, April 20, in Duluth, Minnesota.
The Emerging Entrepreneur Award recognizes an individual with principal responsibility for the creation and operation of a business that has demonstrated growth in revenues and number of employees, profitability, and impact on the community or region.

Weintraub said, “aimClear is truly honored and completely thrilled to receive this award, culminating a fantastic four years and infusing additional pride and energy for the years to come.”
aimClear was founded in January 2007. In just over four years, the company has expanded from a one-man operation to a staff of 14. Weintraub credits the company’s growth to its unique thought leadership, including scientific studies of YouTube, Bing, and Google that revealed radical marketing insights, the results of which aimClear shared with the industry.
