Leap Event Technology is by Inc. Business Media selected for the Inc. Power Partner Awards, honoring B2B organizations around the world that have a proven track record of supporting entrepreneurs and helping startups grow. The list recognizes companies in business products and services, experiential, marketing and advertising, health and wellness, financial services, legal services, logistics and productivity, as well as other business areas.
Power Partners have been selected partly based on feedback from existing customers and partners. Leap was recognized as a Power Partner in the experiential category and received high marks from customers for playing an important role in helping leadership navigate the dynamic world of startups. These B2B partners support entrepreneurs in various facets of the business, including hiring, compliance, infrastructure development, cloud migration, fundraising, etc., allowing founders to focus on their core missions.
“Trusted B2B partners provide guidance and expertise that founders rely on at various steps in their organization’s journey. Partners with a proven ability to deliver quality support are at the heart of entrepreneurship and help bring big ideas to life,” said Scott Omelianuk, editor-in-chief of Inc. Business Media.
“We are flattered to be recognized by Power Partners and included in this year’s list of winners.” says Michael Marty, president of Leap. “Live entertainment is a dynamic and ever-changing industry, with many innovative new creators entering the field every year, and we are passionate about helping startup entrepreneurs with not only our leading technologies and services, but also with creative and flexible investments and financial models that support new ideas. And those creators are excited to join our other established customers, whose roster includes the world’s most iconic brands, who are also doing innovative and forward-thinking things with us. It makes our ‘family’ of employees and customers a very dynamic place to work every day.”
Leap’s differentiator, in addition to their flexible financial models, is that they offer a complete solution of products and services that enable customers one-stop shopping. Most industry providers specialize in a single product – such as ticketing – but Leap offers not only specialized ticketing for different market segments, but also fully integrated mobile apps and experiential marketing tools and services that support the entire event experience and enable vast data collection capabilities to make. for customers. This simplicity is especially attractive to enterprising groups that have a lot to juggle when launching a new event.
Last year, Leap partnered with Running Subway, producers of RiseNY and Art of the Brick, to help launch their properties in New York and Boston, respectively. These innovative producers needed cutting-edge technology and a partner willing to share in the risk-reward of building and delivering immersive, educational experiences for audiences. Leap stepped in with a comprehensive solution that went far beyond that of a traditional technology provider.
Recently, Leap celebrated their 10th anniversary in partnership with ReedPop’s New York Comic Con, a relationship built on countless innovations over the years, allowing NYCC to lead the Comic Con space in fan experience, safety and growth. “Having a mix of large, established customers and smaller, newer ones – both groups looking to help with innovation – fosters a highly creative and productive environment in which we can all work,” Marty continued. “Over the past year, we also began investing in additional proactive services to help all of our clients grow their businesses, including the acquisition of Fan Interactive (now Leap Marketing & Analytics), the leading digital marketing services company in the field of live entertainment. This team and their skills in leveraging the vast amount of data we have been able to capture over the years will allow us to be an even better partner to customers and share in the collective success we help generate.”
