List Rules If you're familiar with AdTech, rank the companies based on their likelihood of having an IPO

There are plenty of ad tech companies vying for business out there, but the hottest ones may not be the most well-known... yet. The market for new ad tech businesses may have simmered down considerably (at least in the public forum), but the companies on this list of pre-IPO ad tech startups prove that there's still a ton of money to be made. Though they aren't public yet, don't be surprised to see these companies making a big leap in the not-so-distant future. VCs are betting on them to be the next big thing, assuming they aren't already there.
