Who we are

ZipfWorks is an e-commerce incubator. We see radical changes in how people shop, driven by rapid evolution in hardware and software which is upending the way we research, form brand affinities, and make purchases. At ZipfWorks, we build, scale, and operate forward-thinking digital ecosystems that help shoppers, brands, and influencers connect and thrive in this dynamic new economy.

Zipf's Law

Zipf's Law states that there is a mathematical consistency to the way humans collaborate and form communities. At ZipfWorks, we apply methods and best practices for product innovation to grow our shopping-related communities in a predictable manner with high visibility and minimal risk. There's no magic or wishful thinking in what we do. We observe, ideate, prototype, launch, and scale our services to achieve our mission of helping people grow and reach their potential.

Our goals

Our fundamental values

Innovation

Innovate : make changes in something established, especially by introducing new methods, ideas, or products.
Our business model is founded on change. Technology changes the way people do things, technology changes industries and markets. Change is our opportunity to build new things that people and businesses adopt. To do this, we must innovate by building new types of products. We do this through experimentation, rapid development, constant feedback, and iteration.

Empowerment

Empowerment : the process of becoming stronger and more confident, especially in controlling one's life and claiming one's rights.
We help small, upstart, and sometimes even struggling new business and influencers ramp up to reach their next level of growth and development. Through well-designed and forward-thinking tools, we give them the power to increase their reach, leverage, and profits.

Continuous growth

Growth : development from a simpler to a more complex stage.
We see life as a continuous process of growth, which includes learning, development of skills, increase of size and reach, and progress towards goal. We grow everyday as creators, marketers, and developers, and we seek to help our community members grow as a result of participating in our communities.
