SessionM, Led by GameLogic and Quattro Vets, Unveils Mobile Ad Platform

Mar 7, 2012

Reprints If there’s a new angle to mobile advertising, Lars Albright has seen it. That’s why his latest company, Boston-based SessionM , is so interesting. Albright previously co-founded Quattro Wireless, the Boston-area ad-tech firm that Apple picked up for about $275 million in 2010 .
