Our Mission

The mission of the MarTech Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the creativity, hard work and success of companies, technologies and products in the fields of Marketing, Sales and Advertising Technology.

Modern marketers require a broad understanding of the best, most effective ways to reach consumers in the moments that matter. It sounds simple enough, but every year brings new challenges that can derail plans and complicate marketing plans. Consider the current (albeit delayed) changes to online targeting. Or the increased regulations and standards surrounding consumer privacy and data collection. Or the constant need to deliver personalized brand experiences at scale, across an ever-growing mix of channels and devices. There are no shortage of disruptive forces influencing how we engage customers and prospects every day

We understand the challenges facing fast-growth technology companies as well as industry veterans. We know what motivates and excites the investors, partners and customers who support them, and we know you can’t work effectively with any of these groups without BREAKING THROUGH the competition to stand out in these crowded fields of technology.
