(NASDAQ: FUEL), a leading provider of artificial intelligence (AI) advertising solutions for digital marketers, today announced that the company’s Co-Founder and President, Richard Frankel, will receive an award from the media and communications chapter of the Young Jewish Professionals (YJP) for Entrepreneur of the Year.
• Founded in 2008, the YJP provides business network, mentoring, and social opportunities for young Jewish business leaders and influencers in the New York area.
