About Ypulse

Who We Are

Ypulse is the leading authority on Millennials: tweens, teens and young adults. We provide strategic insight to marketers via our tools, our data, our insights and our strategic services.

Staffed with a cross-functional team of marketers, researchers, and technologists, we're guided by our vibrant communities as well as our Youth Advisory Board, a group of fresh young minds who keep us in the know about the latest trends in youth attitudes and culture.

What We Do

Ypulse offers content, data and insight as well as syndicated research products via premium subscription plans available at ypulse.com. We also offer customized, strategic services that provide a tailored approach to paving the path to success among Millennials for your brand, product or campaign.

How We Do It

Ypulse's intelligence is derived from our direct relationships with 2 million Millennials across our two communities: SurveyU a traditional online research panel as well as Thumb, a mobile social Q&A network. Thumb's innovative, peer-to-peer social media network is where millions of people under the age of 30 go on their iOS and Android devices to ask and answer each others' questions.

To date, more than 3 billion opinions have been shared across our platforms, enabling brands to ask questions as well as access a real-time stream of authentic Millennial opinion and sentiment.

Our History

Based in New York, Ypulse is the combination of three companies, all passionate about the opinions of young people.

Ypulse kicked things off in 2004, guiding companies on how to successfully communicate and market to youth. SurveyU began in 2007, dedicated to help companies understand young consumers via its online research community. SurveyU and Ypulse merged in 2009. Thumb burst onto the scene in 2010 with a mobile app that was rapidly embraced by youth worldwide as a place to ask and answer each others' questions. Thumb joined the team in 2013.

Fueled by our investors: Blue Run Ventures, SoftBank Capital, Draper Fisher Jurvetson, Upstage Ventures, GC Innovation, WGI Group and Eniac Ventures, our dynamic company has grown 518% over the past five years and has grand ambitions to provide Millennial-centric knowledge and capabilities for our growing client base.
