Wrapify Inc 5000

San Diego, CA, August 16, 2022 – Today, Inc. recognized Wrapify on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This is Wrapify’s third appearance on the list, having previously ranked on the Inc. 500 in 2019, the Inc. 5000 in 2020, and now ranking at #3,137 in 2022. They join companies like Facebook, Chobani, Under Armour, Microsoft, and Patagonia, who have all previously achieved this recognition many times over. 

“I’m extremely proud of what we achieved in 2019 and 2020, but this year feels different,” adds James Heller, Co-founder and CEO of Wrapify. “As the first in the category of ‘vehicle advertising’ to be recognized this many times, we feel validated in our position as industry innovators and leaders.” 

Like all of the companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000, Wrapify demonstrated resilience amid supply chain woes, labor shortages, and the ongoing impact of Covid-19. Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years. 

“The accomplishment of building one of the fastest-growing companies in the U.S., in light of recent economic roadblocks, cannot be overstated,” says Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. “Inc. is thrilled to honor the companies that have established themselves through innovation, hard work, and rising to the challenges of today.” 

By wrapping measurable out-of-home (OOH) advertisements onto rideshare and delivery driver vehicles, Wrapify places ad spend back into the gig economy while offering a powerful ad tech platform that skyrockets brands’ success. Trusted by Fortune 500s like Zoom, Amazon, and Petco, Wrapify provides high-recall OOH advertising via their ever-growing network of 500,000+ drivers throughout the United States.

Methodology 

Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021.

As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places. The top 500 companies on the Inc. 5000 are featured in Inc. magazine’s September issue. The entire Inc. 5000 can be found at http://www.inc.com/inc5000

Wrapify, the innovative and performance-driven out-of-home (OOH) advertising platform, announces Valerie Carboni as their first Vice President of Marketing. Valerie brings more than 12 years of experience in B2B marketing, most recently leading a global marketing team at TrustYou. Previously, Valerie worked at Cvent (CVT), leading the product marketing efforts for their Hospitality Cloud solutions.

In an effort to empower more brands with measurable OOH campaigns, Valerie will ensure that all marketers are fully aware of the benefits, best practices, and positive results of this form of advertising. Her experience running global marketing strategies, which required a clear return-on-investment, make her uniquely qualified to be a trusted resource for brands and agencies looking to do the same. 

“What excites me most about this role is the opportunity to bring ‘campaigns that work’ to marketers who are seeking real, attributable success,” explains Valerie. “Far too often, marketers come up against the challenge of spending money in the wrong places and missing the mark when it comes to ROI. Wrapify is their opportunity to change that.”

James Heller, Wrapify CEO and Founder, adds, “Many brand marketers, especially those focused on ABM or digital marketing, may not know the benefits of high-recall OOH. With Valerie’s knowledge and experience, we aim to help marketers understand the reach and measurability this medium offers.”

NEW YORK, October 5, 2020 – Adweek today ranked Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by out-of-home (OOH) and the gig economy, in its annual Adweek 100: Fastest Growing feature. Fastest Growing honors the 100 top agencies and, for the first time ever, 10 top solution providers — large and small, from all over the world — whose industry presence is on the rise. Accepting entries from every agency and solution provider category, this distinction is awarded to those organizations that have achieved exceptional growth over the past three years. This is the first year that solution providers have appeared on the list. 

“We are beyond grateful to be included in the Top 10 Fastest Growing Solution Providers by Percent Change in Revenue segment of the Adweek 100 this year. 2020 has been a rough year for the ad industry as a whole.

Complete results of Adweek 100: Fastest Growing, including company profiles, can be found here and in the October 5th issue of the award-winning Adweek magazine. Featured organizations include holding companies, independent agencies, both global and regional focused, as well as organizations providing industry services across the spectrum from mobile to lead-gen.

“2020 has been a challenging year, but these agencies and solution providers have shown how innovation breeds success,” says Jeffrey Litvack, Adweek’s chief executive officer. “Everyone in the advertising community can learn something from their examples.” 

“The only constant in advertising is change,” added Lisa Granatstein, Adweek’s editor, svp, programming. “The best way to see where the industry is headed is to see who’s leading the pack, and Adweek 100: Fastest Growing always has a few surprises.”

On Thursday, October 15, 2020, Adweek will celebrate these companies at the Adweek 100: Fastest Growing virtual event.

Boost brings attribution reporting, data visualization and multi-channel retargeting capabilities to transit outdoor advertising

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wrapify, the performance-driven ad tech platform for brands powered by OOH and the gig-economy, today announced a first-of-its-kind product for the transit media space with the launch of its Boost Platform, turning a moving out-of-home (OOH) ad placement into digital and physical retargeting with full attribution and measurement.

Historically, transit OOH and attribution has been difficult to measure. Boost encompasses all of the features that turn a moving OOH ad placement into digital and physical retargeting with full attribution and measurement. For the first time, offline-to-online advertising for transit OOH operators and fleet operators are able to access attribution and retargeting data in a dashboard online.

Preview of Wrapify’s Boost Platform

By leveraging Boost, brands can connect their fleet’s location data, create targeted audiences, extend the reach of their OOH ad placement and measure performance against custom conversion goals. Brands can also access attribution reporting from OOH exposure as well as retargeting reporting, OOH media measurement and data visualization.

“We are excited to enable our mobile billboard fleet with the powerful attribution and retargeting capabilities that Wrapify Boost provides,” said Jeff Griffing, CEO AllOver Media. “AllOver Media has been fortunate that over the last 18 years our mobile billboard customers have been very loyal based on their ROI. We’re now happy to pilot a program with Wrapify and their new tools that can help our customers enhance their media investments even further.”

Enabling branded vehicles with Wrapify’s Boost Platform can turbocharge existing branded fleet inventory of trucks, vans and corporate vehicles with multi-channel ‘Physical Retargeting’ and attribution.

“This powerful gravitas is unique to OOH, yet it’s no longer enough on its own. The industry must endeavor to prove itself with science,” says James Heller, CEO and Co-founder of Wrapify. “Luckily, the work we’ve done over the past five years on our own OOH platform created the opportunity to inform smarter attribution, retargeting and tracking for ROI for the rest of the industry. This is a game-changer for Wrapify and the transit OOH segment at large.”
