Wealthfront announced in June 2014 that it manages more than $1 billion in assets – less than two and a half years since launch. (As a comparison, the company says it took Charles Schwab six years to reach its first $1 billion in assets.) According to Wealthfront, there are over 90 million millennials in the United States with an aggregate net worth of more than $2 trillion, which is expected to grow to $7 trillion by 2018. CNBC reported that Wealthfront has become a “go-to financial investment firm” for this demographic, with employees from Google, Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter using the service. Additionally, Wealthfront was awarded a 2014 CNBC Disruptor 50.

THESIS

The global mobile market continues to grow at a rapid pace and Gartner predicts that global mobile ad spend will reach $41.9 billion by 2017. Location advertising alone is expected to reach 52% of ad spend in mobile by 2017, according to BIA Kelsey research. As xAd will expand to many other key global markets in the coming years, including Canada, Germany and China in 2014, the company is well-poised to address the growing demand from major global advertisers for highly effective, location-focused mobile ad solutions. xAd announced earlier this year that it more than doubled revenue in 2013, ending the year on a $65 million run rate while maintaining profitability. It was further disclosed that the company grew its national client base by more than 300% and increased staff by 75% in 2013.

ZocDoc was founded with a mission of improving access to healthcare. It is a free service that allows patients to find a nearby doctor or dentist who accepts their insurance, see their real-time availability, and instantly book an appointment via ZocDoc.com or ZocDoc’s free apps for iPhone or Android. By revealing the 'hidden supply' of appointments, the typical ZocDoc patient sees a doctor in under 24 hours. The company’s most recent product, ZocDoc Check-In, allows patients to fill out their paperwork online in advance of their appointment, and a Spanish-language version called ZocDoc en Español is also available.

In addition to ZocDoc’s geographic expansion plans, the company announces it has also broadened its reach by working with hospitals and health systems across 20 different states.
