Market Research Innovator inVibe Joins Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies in America for 4th Year in a Row, and Merges with THREAD

Tue Aug 16 2022

Costa Mesa, CA (August 16, 2022) – inVibe has had a busy year; for the fourth year in a row, joining the ranks of the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private companies and merging with the decentralized clinical trial platform, THREAD. Earning the rank of #3,519 on the annual list, inVibe continues to revolutionize healthcare-focused market research.

“Digital innovation has helped companies deeply understand the needs of customers, and in no industry is that more important than healthcare,” insists Fabio Gratton, inVibe Co-founder, CEO, and Chief Experience Officer at THREAD. “We built inVibe with the goal of removing all the barriers between discovering the needs and expectations of patients and professionals and the life science companies that serve them. Ranking on the Inc. 5000 list validates our success, and merging with THREAD paves the way for even greater public health benefit.”

Through a mix of human expertise and technology, inVIbe has created a new paradigm for market research. By seamlessly integrating voice-based data collection from smartphones, linguistic and machine learning analytics, and dynamic reporting techniques, inVibe provides invaluable end user insights across the entire drug development and distribution life cycle. And by providing these capabilities to clinicians managing decentralized clinical trials, the industry is further empowered to create cutting-edge therapeutics for increasingly diverse populations.

At the heart of the inVibe market research revolution is their ability to tap into the depth and emotional resonance of the human voice. Conventional market research surveys and even observational studies collect a limited amount of data, which is often biased. inVibe instead collects megabytes of voice data and then fed into the industry’s most advanced analytical platform. The multidimensional voice input is the source of unique insights that drive actionable recommendations for optimizing clinical trials and downstream communications.

“Apple, Google, and Amazon are valued at over a trillion dollars thanks to their unprecedented ability to understand the consumer experience,” adds Fabio. “inVibe has adapted many of these same tools for healthcare market research. If Alexa can drive billions in eCommerce, then there’s no reason inVibe can’t offer similar innovation and power to better understand consumers for pharma. We’re honored to be ranked for the fourth year on the Inc. 5000, and feel our merger with THREAD adds a new dimension to our proven impact on public health.”
