SheerID Ranks Among the Top Tier in Inc. Magazine’s List of the Pacific Region’s Fastest-Growing Private Companies for Second Year in a Row

Portland, OR – February 27, 2024 Inc. Magazine today revealed that SheerID was included in its fifth annual Inc. 5000 Regionals: Pacific list for the second consecutive year, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies based in Alaska, Hawaii, California, Oregon, and Washington. Born of the annual Inc. 5000 franchise, this regional list represents a unique look at the most successful private companies within the Pacific region economy generating sustainable growth and jobs.

Founded in 2011, SheerID works with more than 300 B2C brands in retail, telecommunications, media, internet services, software, and travel, and has the ability to digitally verify billions of consumers around the world. Brands like Amazon, Spotify, Target and T-mobile use SheerID to instantly verify eligible consumers for personalized, gated offer programs to tight-knit communities like students, teachers and healthcare workers. Because these programs reward consumers for the communities they strongly identify with, marketers see higher engagement, conversion rates and lifetime value. According to a recent research study by Forrester Consulting, SheerID customers received a 337% return on investment.

Last week, SheerID launched two new capabilities – Marketing Hub and DataConnectors – to make it even easier to acquire and retain customers within these communities. With these latest enhancements, SheerID is the first to provide brands a single solution to acquire identity-based audiences, verify eligibility to an exclusive offer, and instantly stream opt-in customer data throughout their martech stack for personalized communication.

“This award is a testament to our team’s hard work and dedication, for which I’m extremely proud,” stated Jake Weatherly, CEO of SheerID. “We have a huge opportunity in front of us as brands look for authentic, privacy-friendly approaches to build relationships with customers. Our solutions enable marketers to tap into the best practices of B2C communication – opted-in, exclusive, and instantly personalized across channels.”

“The honorees in our Inc. 5000 network are the Who’s Who of private companies. They’re energizing regional economies as they engineer the future of their industries. Learn who they are and what they do — they’ll be impacting things for a while,” said Eric Hagerman, Special Projects Editor at Inc. Media.
