Leadbolt.com founder and CEO Dale Carr has taken out the PM's 51st Australian Exporter of the Year award in Melbourne in the 'information and communication technology' category, following his 'Entrepreneur of the Year' win last week.

Carr founded LeadBolt in Bondi Junction in 2010 and has since added an office in LA in 2012, with the company now employing around 65 staff. 

He describes his company as the third most-used mobile advertising solution by app developers on the Android system and said it delivers 5 billion advertising impressions a month in over 100 countries on over 40,000 apps, including everything from Candy Crush to Talking Tom. The service creates wealth for app developers through monetisation of apps globally.

PM Abbott, congratulating Dale Carr on the award, said "You guys have done an incredible job. Keep it up!”

“It’s so exciting to be recognised for the work LeadBolt and our team does," Carr said following the announcement.

"We're developing new ways to engage app users including floating ads, audio ads, in app alerts and lots more. My aim is to provide a digital ad network platform for apps."

The Australian export Award judges called LeadBolt a "true global digital 21st century economy business with outstanding results."

In addition to the PM's Australian Exporter of the Year award and being named EY Australia’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Dale has also recently received the 2013 NSW Premier’s Export Award and The Australian Business Award for E-Business and, internationally, Media Summit’s Mobile Mafia Award for “Best Publishing Platform” in New York and the Mobile Excellence Award for "Best Mobile Ad Network" in Los Angeles.

“We are proving that a little company from Australia can make a huge difference to the world mobile ad economy and compete amongst the best of the best” Carr said.

“We are passionate about developing solutions to enable the industry to grow and meet the insatiable demand consumers have for free content. With over 102 billion free apps expected to be downloaded this year, growing to almost 300 billion by 2016, the market is growing at an incredible pace and competition is fierce.”

LeadBolt is privately held and headquartered in Sydney and Los Angeles. Check out the official website here.
