isocket - Casey Saran
The first and largest programmatic direct platform in the world, isocket automates the long and manual process of buying and selling premium display ads directly. Casey Saran is the Director of Product at isocket. Casey began his career in ad tech on the publisher side, working in ad ops at Weather Underground. From there, he went on to the other side of the table, at Google, and helped publishers monetize more effectively as an AdSense product specialist. isocket (https://www.isocket.com/) is also our pizza sponsor for November!

PaperG - Asees Singh
PaperG's ad technology drastically changes the game of advertising by creating a dynamic digital display ad in under a minute only using a business's name and location pulling together all the available information about a business from across the Web and gathers things like the logo, photos, and positive reviews and incorporates everything into a digital display ad. Our next iteration of the technology, internally dubbed v3, allows for smoother and greater design capability.
Woopie - Martha Rotter
Woopie (http://woop.ie), and it stands for "Write Only Once, Publish It Everywhere." Woopie allows publishers, editors, advertisers and anyone with a message to share to design and create their content once and then publish it in a variety of formats to ensure it reaches their entire audience on every device from laptop to Kindle to smart phone to tablet to e-reader and beyond.
