LOS ANGELES, Aug. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Inc. magazine announced that Ember Technologies, Inc. (Ember®), global temperature control brand and maker of the world’s first temperature control smart mug, debuted on the annual Inc. 5000 list. The list is one of the most prestigious rankings of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies and represents the American economy’s most dynamic segment—independent small businesses.
«Being recognized as one of America’s fastest-growing companies, especially in 2021, is a true honor,» said Clay Alexander, Founder and Group CEO of Ember. «It is a testament to the extraordinary strength of our team and an accomplishment that will inspire us as we continue to push the boundaries of temperature technology and expand the brand into groundbreaking new categories.»
The list ranking comes on the heels of a massive year for Ember, whose namesake temperature control products – the Ember Mug2 and Ember Travel Mug2 – experienced triple-digit year-over-year sales growth. As the world adapted to a new routine, Ember quickly became a work-from-home staple, contributing to a 2x year-over-year increase in e-commerce sales. Ember’s retail expansion into big-box retailers, including Costco and over 1,700 Target stores, also aided the Company’s rapid growth.
Ember has also raised more than $80 million in funding, which will help fuel research and development in new verticals and further scale the brand internationally. To date, the Company has over 100 fully granted utility patents surrounding temperature control, data, and connectivity, with plans to apply it to the expanding product portfolio, including healthcare and infant feeding. Ember’s patented technology coupled with the brand’s design and product development capabilities will continue to fuel its rapid growth for many years to come.
Notable Ember investors include some of today’s most prominent musicians and athletes such as Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Demi Lovato, Kevin Durant, Aaron Rodgers, The Chainsmokers, Tiësto, Kaskade, Tyler, the Creator, Ndamukong Suh, and more.
