The San Diego Business Journal has ranked Underground Elephant among our region’s 100 Fastest-Growing Private Companies for the sixth consecutive year. From 2012-2014, Underground Elephant grew its revenue by 128%, while nearly doubling its workforce over the same period. With growth reaching $55 million in 2014, we are projecting double-digit growth in 2015.
Commenting on the achievement, Jason Kulpa, Founder and CEO of Underground Elephant, said, “We are honored that the San Diego Business Journal recognized us. For seven years we’ve focused on developing technology that radically disrupts the real-time programmatic advertising landscape. As a result, we are among the best in the business, constantly improving performance and efficiency of large enterprises across their customer life cycles.”
Our technology-driven, growth-focused strategy is also driving local high-tech job creation. With 100 full-time employees at our headquarters in Downtown San Diego, UE has nearly doubled its workforce in just two years, 80% of which are Millennials. As a self-funded company, our rapid growth over the last 24 months is a testament to our home-grown methods, leadership and desire to reinvigorate the San Diego tech scene. In the coming months, we will relocate to a historic office space in Downtown San Diego’s East Village. The company’s award-winning new office at 808 J St is poised to be one of the region’s most creative office designs.
Central to UE’s consistent success is the Internet technology and software development division, ue.co, which powers our customer acquisition products and insurance-focused brands, Allstate Lead Marketplace and ZipQuote, both of which launched within the last two years. Adding to its brand portfolio, ue.co built the Call Bidding Marketplace (CBM) in early 2015, an innovative, cross-industry tech solution to help large enterprises improve their customer acquisition efforts and strengthen connectivity between sales teams and prospective customers.
When asked about what to expect from Underground Elephant this time next year, Kulpa responded, “We will continue to grow our self-funded company with innovative technology and strong Fortune-100 partnerships, capturing market share from publicly-traded competitors and pushing San Diego to the forefront of the Ad Tech industry.”
