The new program is another sign of what the new company CMGI is putting
together — a combined Adsmart, Flycast Communications, and Engage Technologies — will be able to
accomplish in partnership with other CMGI companies. Although it’s an
AdForce initiative, and it will use AdForce’s ad delivery methods, Jump
Start will provide web advertisers and publishers access to the Flycast
Network and Adsmart’s network.
“AdForce is committed to encouraging the success and rapid growth of
emerging Internet companies that share our passion for shaping the
industry,” says Chuck Berger, chief executive officer of AdForce.
“Jump Start is a program tailored to the needs of a specific customer —
the Internet start-up. Everyone started from somewhere in this business,
and the industry has seen small Web sites with little or no name
recognition become household names in spans of a few years.”
