What is this all about?

This is not a dog and pony show… this is a Razzle Dazzle!

Razzle Dazzle began in 2009 as a way to bring the AppNexus family together and showcase what we were working on.

As we grew and the tradition continued, it quickly became a cornerstone of our culture, evolving into three connected identities aligned to our mission and values:

A Razzle Dazzle [proper noun]: An internal, company-wide event focused on learning, teaching and cross-functional collaboration.

To Razzle Dazzle [verb]: To bring a sense of showmanship to everything you do.

The Razzle Dazzle [proper noun]: AppNexus’ 300-person, state-of-the-art auditorium nestled in our New York City office. We produce regular events in our space aimed at learning and teaching with our employees, job candidates, clients, and community at large. From tech talks and hackathons to fireside chats, panel discussions and workshops, the Razzle Dazzle features some of the biggest names in technology and business. These programs deliver cutting edge content, both technical and non-technical, and help us tackle big issues facing our industry.

The Razzle Dazzle space also provides an additional platform for us to empower our customers and give back to the community, supporting organizations such as Girls Who Code, Women 2.0, Out in Tech, and Startup Institute.

AppNexus’ vision is to create a better Internet. And we believe that by empowering those around us with knowledge, we can make the world better too.

We hope you will join us in this shared journey and come see us in the Razzle Dazzle!
