Regroup is the largest privately-held mass notification software provider.[1].

In response to 2020's novel coronavirus crisis, Regroup created COVID-19 map layers to help target efficient notification to communities. [2]. Regroup has also partnered with CivicPlus [3], and was shortlisted by FEMA as an IPAWS-compliant Common Alerting Protocol system.[4]

Regroup was started as CollegeWikis.com by students in 2006 at Stanford University, before closing a $2M round of venture capital in 2008. [5] In 2009, it rebranded to Regroup to focus on its Mass Notifications product, partnering with Datatel/Ellucian for its higher education solution. [6] [7] It was founded by Joe DiPasquale, who was named one of the most powerful LGBTQ+ people in tech by Business Insider in 2019. [8] [9]
