“We create custom, interactive content for targeted super-fans of music, movies, sports, events, and brands. Think of it as entertainment, elevated. “-Zinepak
Brittany Hodak and Kim Kaupe co-founded New York City-based Zinepak through a noteworthy collaboration of media and entertainment experience. The pair bonded over their adoration of marketing and branding, but felt there was a need in the marketplace for engaging pop-culture content that connected top brands and entertainers with their fans in a more memorable way. In effect, Zinepak promotes clients by offering exclusive content and innovative apps that add a variety of bonus elements to a brand's core offerings. Since the company’s founding in 2011, ZinePak quickly evolved from an idea into a multi-million dollar company. They have produced album packages for such big-name artists as Johnny Cash and Katy Perry. They’ve also worked with American Idol and the Academy of Country Music (ACM) to release compilation CDs and an app that debuted with the 2014 ACM Awards. In 2013, the company reeled in $3 million in sales and projects growth this year.
There is no surprise that Hodak and Kaupe have respectively garnered high praise and admiration from the entertainment industry. These accolades include "Inc's 35 Under 35 Coolest Entrepreneurs", "Forbes Music 30 Under 30","Gold Stevie Award Winner for Young Female Entrepreneur of the Year", along with notable speaking engagements for Fox Business news and Inc’s GrowCo Conference with other entrepreneurs like Mark Cuban, Julia Hartz, and Jason Fried.
Fidens own founder, Brian Leidell, took a moment to express: “When I first worked with Zinepak, it was enlivening to observe the dynamic fusion of innovation, creativity, and pure passion for what they do. They are not only a great success story, but a solid recommendation for entertainment clientele looking to promote their core offerings. ”
