Company Summary

NextHop is the Waze of retail. We provide a mobile app that lets consumers find items and their way around big box stores, grocery stores, etc. In return, vendors and brands are able to send consumers ads or coupons targeted to what the consumer is looking for right when he/she enters their product's aisle. It is a crowdsourced, free app that is supported by advertising that works like Google Adwords in the brick and mortar retail world.
