The Zappos Family of Companies, a subsidiary of Amazon.com, is a leader in online apparel and footwear sales by striving to provide shoppers the best possible service and selection. We carry millions of products from over 1000 footwear and apparel brands. Established in 1999, we are currently located in Las Vegas, NV, Shepherdsville, KY, and with a brand-spanking new extension software development shop, we're back in our "hometown," San Francisco, CA. There are approximately 2,500 Zapponians, but continual growth makes that number ever-increasing.
We've been asked by a lot of people how we've grown so quickly, and the answer is actually really simple...we've aligned the entire organization around one mission: to provide the best customer service possible. Internally, we call this our WOW philosophy.
And, we believe that it's our unique, "fun and a little weird" culture that drives the WOW. In January 2011, Zappos earned #6 on the 2010 Fortune: 100 Best Companies to Work For List, and our sales exceed 1 billion dollars a year. We think we might be on to something here...
In 2009, the founders of Grasshopper saw the need for a modern Software-as-a-Service offering to meet the needs of businesses that need to manage subscriptions and bill customers. The market seemed to be filled with clunky, off-the-shelf systems and enterprise solutions that charged huge set up and transaction fees. So, they decided to build an intelligent billing application system themselves, and Chargify was born.
Developed by a team with more than twenty years of combined experience, Chargify is a reliable web-based service (Ruby on Rails framework, simple API, self-service business model) operated within a solid corporate structure (experienced staff and solid financials). We know the unique demands a business can face when it comes to billing and that's why we're committed to providing a truly outstanding recurring billing application engineered for the long-haul.
The team was joined by Lance Walley in 2009, co-founder and former CEO of Engine Yard, a well-known company in the Ruby on Rails hosting market.

SendGrid has developed a cloud based service that solves this challenge by delivering emails on behalf of companies. We've already helped over 8,000 companies and delivered over 2 Billion emails.

Our mission is to empower people to change the way the global economy works. We see a world in which very-very small businesses have much-much more sway in shaping the economy, local living economies are thriving everywhere, and people value authorship and provenance as much as price and convenience. We are bringing heart to commerce and making the world more fair, more sustainable, and more fun.
CLEAR is different. CLEAR is super fast, take-it-with-you internet. It’s 4G, four times faster than 3G and just as mobile. It’s a vast network built for robust data, totally unlike other “internet networks” that were designed for nothing more than voice. It’s the world’s largest spectrum. And for the spectrum novice, that means internet that is faster, cheaper and completely unlimited. No data caps. No overage charges. It’s a company that is focused on fixing everything that’s broken and complicated about getting, keeping and paying for a fast, mobile internet connection.

We created manpacks to give men (and the people who love them) more time to build empires, climb mountains, slay dragons... to achieve the goals they aspire to. We believe...
Men have better things to do than shop for the basics.
The people who love them have better things to do, too.
To the extent that we outsource the mundane, we liberate ourselves.

SwarmBuilder.com is focused on aggregating important sales influencers AND delivering "incentivized" Word-of-Mouth Marketing (WOMM) services. We work with Brands, Retailers and Member Organizations to build audiences of sales influencers and convert them into active armies of engaged Brand Advocates resulting in millions of WOMM-inspired interactions each year.
We focus on three types of sales influencers: 1) Retail Sales Professionals; 2) Pros and other VIPs; 3) vocal web collaborators. For each group, we have developed a tailored site (3point5.com and ProMotive.com). All three sites run on our powerful, proprietary platform, which enables the execution of efficient and effective WOMM initiatives while minimizing administrative costs and user abuse.
Today the SwarmBuilder team works with almost 200 Brands that operate in a wide range of consumer product industries. We develop and deliver millions of training sessions to almost 20,000 retail locations annually. We also seed and gather feedback from our hundreds-of-thousands of Brand Advocates. We are WOMM believers. We are web-savvy, service-oriented professionals. And we are consumer product junkies. Want to learn more? Take a demo, give us a call, or drop us an email.
