Whoa, what a year!

2021 was huge for SwagUp, and while not without its challenges (hello, global operations and supply chain complications) we’re really proud of all we’ve accomplished. 

Some of our favorite highlights:

1. We’re going to need more space suits…

Our small but mighty crew of Swagstronauts grew from ~100 employees, to over 220, with team members in 27 states and 6 countries!

2. We partnered with the mayor of Miami to raise ~$50K in funding for youth tech programs in the Miami area.

We provided swag for the #HowCanIHelp campaign with all proceeds donated to coding and education programs at iTech Mega Magnet (@itechmegamagnet) and feeder pattern schools. Read more >

3. We made the INC. 5000!

In 2021, Inc.com named SwagUp the 23rd fastest growing, privately-held company in the USA. Read more >

4. EY Entrepreneur of the Year

Our Founder and CEO, Michael Martocci, was named New Jersey’s 2021 Entrepreneur of the Year ® by Ernst & Young. Read more >

5. We helped our clients create more than 2 million connections!

Last year, we partnered with 2048 new clients, and shipped 2,147,157 packs over 3 million miles!

While we’re pretty pleased with our progress, we acknowledge that 2021 definitely sent a few asteroids, including delivery delays, rising shipping costs, and product shortages, into our orbit. 

As we navigate these matters, we’re committed to optimizing what’s within our control, and working in the SwagUp Way:

as one team, with one mission—to help our customers connect with the people that matter most.

Thank you to all of our talented Swagstronauts and amazing customers for contributing to our success over the past year, and for continuing to invest in us in the year ahead.

Let’s take 2022 #tothemoon!
