Joshua Reid, founder of Inphlu, ran a successful social media marketing agency for years. Every client was different, but he noticed they all had one thing in common:
If the employees of a client would buy into the social media strategy and publish content from their own accounts, the organization would 10x its results.
Through consulting, coaching, and workshops, Josh’s agency implemented employee advocacy programs at enterprise organizations across the country with tremendous success. To increase efficiency and scale to this process, Josh and his team added technology into the mix and Inphlu was born.
Every feature, every workflow, and every pixel of Inphlu is the result from working in the trenches of employee advocacy and bringing those insights to scale.
Josh began his High School academic studies by winning a scholarship to the prestigious private high school Bishop Maginn in Albany, New York, and attended college on an Academic Scholarship, receiving his B.S. in Electrical Engineering from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI). He then continued his education at Indiana University – Purdue University Indianapolis for his M.S. in Electrical Engineering.
Josh, who is creative and inventive, has used these talents along with his strong technical background into starting a new company named Inphlu. Inphlu, an Ohio MBE Certified enterprise software that helps businesses amplify their message and drive recruitment, by sharing corporate-approved content through the social media channels of their employees.
Under Josh’s entrepreneurial leadership, Inphlu has grown through the Pandemic and expanded its capabilities. Due to Inphlu’s success and bright future, Inphlu has successfully raised over $2.1M in venture capital investments from Jumpstart Inc., The Presidents’ Council, TriKohr Capital, and many other prominent VC’s, Angels, and Enterprise Companies.
These collective organizations’ support, along with additional investments and awards, continues to allow the platform to expand and grow.
