June 24, 2015 - FierceOnlineVideo today announced its annual “Fierce 15” list of the top privately held online video/OTT companies of 2015. The winners this year reflect a broad cross-section of the hottest online startups that are innovating in live streaming, compression, digital advertising and more.
FierceOnlineVideo, an internationally recognized email newsletter and online publication covering the online video industry, evaluated numerous privately-held companies, either U.S.-based or doing significant business in the U.S., on the basis of their technology, products and services; their business plans and vision; and most of all on their potential for changing the OTT industry. The Fierce 15 companies were evaluated and selected by FierceOnlineVideo’s team of editors--Samantha Bookman, Mike Dano, and Nicole Blanchard.
“FierceOnlineVideo editors meet and speak with hundreds of online video companies every year, including a wide range of startups. Whenever we speak to new companies, we’re always thinking about whether they have the potential to be Fierce 15 winners,” said Samantha Bookman, Editor of FierceOnlineVideo. “These are the companies that are shaping and improving the industry. The online video industry is one of the most disruptive and innovative elements of the IP ecosystem today, and it’s an honor--and very exciting--to chronicle the companies that are at the forefront of online video, which is still in its early stages of growth.”
This is the first “Fierce 15” feature published by FierceOnlineVideo, making the 2015 selectees the inaugural class of this annual event. The awards celebrate the spirit of being "fierce"--championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition.
