Stephan Goss, CEO & Founder of Zeeto, is the featured call-out honoree for the Forbes’ “30 Under 30” Marketing & Advertising category.
SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Zeeto, a leading marketing data discovery company, announces its CEO & Founder, Stephan Goss, is among Forbes’ list of “30 Under 30” honorees. The list, which was announced on November 14, features 600 innovators, entrepreneurs, and leaders across 20 categories. Each category includes 30 honorees, of whom one was highlighted as a category call-out. Goss was chosen as the call-out for the Marketing & Advertising category.
All of the honorees on the Forbes class of 2018 30 Under 30 list were vetted by a panel of blue-ribbon judges in their respective fields. Forbes received more than 15,000 online submissions for the list, and just four out of every 100 nominees made the cut.
Goss founded Zeeto in 2010 when he was just 22 years-old. With zero outside funding, Goss grew Zeeto from a three-person business into an award-winning marketing technology company with more than 80 employees. In Zeeto’s first four years of existence, Goss was responsible for doubling its revenue annually and most recently broke the $40M mark. Zeeto has had a growth rate of 98 percent over the last three years.
While leading Zeeto, Goss also spun off several businesses, including Samples.com and Get It Free, two of the most popular free samples and savings sites on the web today. Together, they have generated over $115 million in revenue.
“I am honored to have earned a spot on the Forbes list. It is an acknowledgment of our technology, hard work, passion, and fast growth. But my team and I are just getting started. We have launched a new form of advertising in which publishers and advertisers can uncover data virtually anywhere simply by asking questions. For publishers, Zeeto technology is a free monetization tool–an alternative to Google and Facebook that allows them to diversify their revenue streams and better compete in today’s challenging digital landscape,” said Goss.
Goss came to the United States from Switzerland to attend the University of Albany, where he graduated in 2010. He is among the 19 percent of 30 under 30 list members who are immigrants, originating from more than 50 different countries.
“For the past seven years, the Forbes 30 Under 30 list has emerged as the way that the world discovers the next generation of entrepreneurs and game-changers,” said Randall Lane, Editor of Forbes Magazine and creator of the Forbes Under 30 franchise. “This is the ultimate club: the people that will reinvent every field over the next century.”
Goss is proud to be part of such an exclusive network of game changers and leaders and the call-out winner for the Marketing & Advertising category. He and the Zeeto team extend a warm congratulations to all of the Forbes 30 Under 30 honorees.
