Our Journey To 4.0

Every company has a story.
Not every company has four of them. We’re proud of every chapter of ours, and most excited by the newest.

    • 2014 to the future

      Crossover into something new: bringing our publisher expertise to Mobile and a consumer brand called U

      How many companies leave their legacy businesses behind to start from the beginning and reinvent themselves? We’re proud to say we’re the only one we know of. Our brilliant people are hard at work creating the future of connected digital experiences. If we don’t make money right away, that’s fine. In fact, it’s to be expected. We have the ability to fund our imaginations, and they will take us to places we haven’t even dreamed of yet.

  • Conduit 3.0
    • 2011-2013

      From one foundation to many:
      introducing new products

      We saw where the world was headed. So we joined the mobile revolution by launching our innovative Conduit Mobile. And that same DNA inspired us to create a whole new experience called U, which introduces your smartphone to your desktop and lets them play together like never before. After all, technology can’t remain doing the same thing for long – and neither can we.

  • Conduit 2.0
    • 2008-2010

      Helping publishers grow:
      our network expanded, along with our bank account

      We were the first to generate revenue by marrying search and engagement. Google had the vision to fuel our innovation, and Bing joined the party. Together, we created a global industry and a set of standards.

  • Conduit 1.0
    • 2005-2007

      The Community Toolbar: from a concept to making it big

      We began with just an idea. But what’s more powerful than that? We believed that publishers needed a better way to connect with their users. Our passion served as our bank account, and crazy hard work took the place of infrastructure. The result: the Community Toolbar.
