Breaking News! Joining the ranks of Netflix, Shopify and SpaceX, Vampr was today added to Fast Company’s Most Innovative Company list 🚀

By Vampr

What a hell of a month 🥺

Last week we were nominated for a Music Week award for the second year running, and today we learned that Vampr has been added to Fast Company’s prestigious list of the world’s Most Innovative Companies for 2022.

Being a musician is bloody hard. The industry is notorious for its gatekeepers.

And yet every day Vampr is making it easier for millions of musicians to carve out their own path and make a living from their music.

To date, over 7 million professional relationships have been brokered on Vampr, with users making an average of 2 new connections per session (comparable to Facebook). Try to imagine the impossibility of making that many connections and collabs in the days of planes, trains and automobiles – or as we say B.V. (before Vampr 😉)

In the past year we’ve nearly doubled the size of our user-base; watched as the number of messages being sent each month has grown 200%; and launched multiple revenue streams generating a Run Rate currently sitting close to half a million dollars.

And we’re just getting started…

“We’re totally thrilled and humbled to receive recognition from the likes of Fast Company and Music Week,” says Josh Simons, co-founder of Vampr. “We’re proud that our work so far is getting the recognition it deserves, and we’re committed to further radical innovation in the future.”

Fast Company honors businesses that are making the biggest impact on their industries and culture as a whole—ultimately thriving in today’s ever-changing world. Vampr is now proud to sit among those companies bringing in the future today with some of the most inspiring accomplishments of the 21st century.

Having raised $2.6M previously, Vampr is actively raising $2M in a private round as we simultaneously celebrate raising over $650K through a Reg CF campaign on Wefunder which is due to close in three weeks time on March 31.
