In 1997, Where2GetIt was founded by Manish Patel--a visionary with a dream of bringing a local impact to a globalizing world. Starting as a store locator company with a few near and dear clients, we began to develop our technologies, strengthen our strategies, and push the limits on becoming our better selves.By 2004, Where2GetIt HQ was re-situated in its current home: Southern California. The greater Silicon Beach hub has allowed us to implement more expansive technologies for our customers and breed the most innovative, creative and diverse team of local marketers. To this day, we continue to hire some of the most inventive professionals that the digital marketing industry has to offer. We are proud to say that we are a 100% employee-owned organization.
In recent years, we have made landmark strides in connecting consumers with the brands they love. Because of our technology and experience in the game of Local, we have developed partnerships with some of the biggest players in the industry and even expanded to help international brands market at the local level. We expanded our locator solution in 2013 by acquiring Xionetic Technologies, which allowed us to hit the 1B transaction mark. Since 2014, we have been riding a new wave of local and helping some of the top brand marketers in the game with our technology--Brandify.
The past 18 years have been a coming of age story for Where2GetIt. What started as a simple idea by one person has become an international practice of hyper-local brand marketing. We are empowered by our clients and community to become the most transformative organization we can be, and now it's time to take the next step in this journey.
