More than half of 2021 has already flown by (crazy, isn’t it?), and nothing is more exciting than a mid-year review! Looking back on the first half of 2021, the Grasp team is delighted to share some of our highlights with you.
Let’s talk numbers
Grasp was founded at the end of 2020. When 2021 started, we were almost looking at 0 for most metrics. After 6 months of hard work, we now have…
- 12 platforms integrated, across social, programmatic and search
- 250 active advertisers in direct or through agencies
- 380 users from different parts of the world
- 500 guidelines created by our clients
- 2000 alerts sent
- $105M media spend protected
- Countless mistakes prevented
It took sweat and lots of sleepless nights, but we find it incredibly meaningful and rewarding. Knowing and seeing with our own eyes that our solution helps our clients maximize their business margin and identify immediate improvement opportunities everyday, motivates us constantly. And… this is only the beginning.
We joined the HEC Paris Incubator Program
Grasp was selected among 14 start ups out of hundreds of applicants to join the Spring Batch of the HEC Incubator Program (click here for more details). Through the incubator program, the Grasp team was able to connect with successful fellow entrepreneurs and prominent business figures across different industries.
We wanted to thank all the people we spoke with through the incubator program in the last months, for your advice, ideas and contributions. Each one of you has helped shape a bit of Grasp, and we couldn’t have achieved the numbers above without you.
The team is growing
The Grasp team is no longer just the 4 founders.
Oliver Hamon has joined the Grasp team as a Full Stack Engineer, and altogether the Grasp team had an offsite in the lovely French countryside. Coming up in August, we are welcoming the 6th member of our team. Stay tuned for an HR update in the coming weeks!
With Q3 started, the Grasp team is already packed with pilots and innovations tasks. We look forward to what we can achieve in the 2nd half of 2021, and to more exciting news by end of the year.
