NEW YORK, August 14, 2019 – Inc. magazine today announced that Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig-economy, was ranked in the top 500 as No. 309 on its annual Inc. 500 list, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent small businesses.
By combining its powerful performance-driven out-of-home (OOH) and omnichannel ad tech platform with the gig economy, Wrapify empowers Fortune 500 brands like AT&T, Coca-Cola, and Salesforce to reach tailored audiences in an omnichannel environment where traditional media cannot via wrapped vehicles.
Via its Attribution Suite and Physical Retargeting, Wrapify bridges the gap between online and offline advertising all while serving brands with measurable, actionable analytics to help target and scale ad campaigns. Recently, Alaska Airlines partnered with Wrapify for specific flight and city promotion efforts and increased online conversion rates by 20% as a result.
Inc. 5000 also honored Wrapify as #28 in Top Advertising & Marketing Companies and #8 in Top Companies in San Diego.
“It’s an incredibly exciting accomplishment for Wrapify to have earned a spot amongst the top 500 companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 list for innovation and growth in OOH advertising, attribution and media measurement,” said James Heller, CEO of Wrapify. “Measuring OOH advertising in 2019 is no longer an impossible task. Our platform makes OOH more transparent and easier to measure, and our first-of-its-kind technology is officially recognized for its strength in showing attribution and helping some of the world’s top brands reach their goals. We are honored to receive this valuable recognition and believe it is a great sign of the proven and future successes of moving OOH advertising efforts. We look forward to continue contributing to the growth of place-based and OOH advertising in an omnichannel world.”
Not only have the companies on the 2019 Inc. 5000 been very competitive within their markets, but the list as a whole shows staggering growth compared with prior lists. The 2019 Inc. 5000 achieved an astounding three-year average growth of 454 percent, and a median rate of 157 percent. The Inc. 5000’s aggregate revenue was $237.7 billion in 2018, accounting for 1,216,308 jobs over the past three years.
“The companies on this year’s Inc. 5000 have followed so many different paths to success,” says Inc. editor in chief James Ledbetter. “There’s no single course you can follow or investment you can take that will guarantee this kind of spectacular growth. But what they have in common is persistence and seizing opportunities.”
The annual Inc. 5000 event honoring the companies on the list will be held October 10 to 12, 2019, at the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort and Spa in Phoenix, Arizona. As always, speakers include some of the greatest innovators and business leaders of our generation.
