History

Founded by a team from Stanford University, NeoReach is a venture-backed startup based out of Silicon Valley. In 2013, the company was invited into The Alchemist Accelerator, a business incubator ran by one of founder Jesse Leimgruber's professors at Stanford University. The company launched a closed beta in December 2013. Shortly thereafter, NeoReach raised outside investment from Silicon Valley angel investors.



In early 2014, the team expanded their agency partnerships and quickly penetrated the mainstream market. It was during this time when NeoReach was invited by Splunk founder, Michael Baum, to join Founder.org. NeoReach was among 10 startups that won a $100k grant from the program. After getting to know the company better, Founder.org led the company's seed round. This sparked interest from notable entrepreneurs and investors such as Expedia co-founder, Greg Slyngstad, Matt Mochary, among others.In August 2014, former oDesk CEO, Gary Swart, joined NeoReach as an advisor. Upon joining, Swart wrote that NeoReach has a "Smart, resourceful team and interesting approach to a massive market opportunity."In September 2014, NeoReach had over 10,000 bloggers and social media influencers using the platform.
