The story of David Steinberg is nothing short of inspirational. He rose to the top of the Inc. 500 bringing InPhonic to Unicorn status with a valuation of over $1 billion.
Inphonic had to file for Chapter 11 during the financial crisis of 2007–2010. Taking what he learned during the rise/fall of Inphonic, David has now created his 2nd unicorn startup Zeta Interactive that’s challenging IBM, SalesForce, Oracle in the process.
2015 was a record-setting year for Zeta, which included: crossing $200 million in revenue, posting an all-time high in EBITDA, closing their largest acquisition of the CRM division of eBay Enterprise and raising $125 million, led by Blackstone Group’s GSO Partners.
Zeta uses big data, advanced analytics, and machine learning to power marketing programs for hundreds of Fortune 1000 and Middle Market brands. With over 1,000 employees worldwide, the company is headquartered in New York City, with Centers of Excellence in Silicon Valley, Boston, London, and Hyderabad, India, and 12 additional offices around the globe
