The Wizards vs Aliens app, created by Magic Ruby, also offers a unique educational experience, engaging kids in factual science-based content. Kids have an opportunity to further explore the science inspired geology and geography featured in the spellbinding adventures from the Wizards vs Aliens TV show.   “FremantleMedia has been a pioneer in the second screen experience for some of the biggest entertainment shows in the world, such as American Idol and The X Factor, in turn making them two of the most socially relevant shows,” said Nicholas Dale, Senior Manager of Interactive and Mobile, FremantleMedia.  “With today’s youth utilizing mobile technology at an increasing rate, we’re thrilled to now be the leader in bringing a second screen experience to the kids’ market.” “We’re excited to partner with FremantleMedia on the second screen companion app for Wizards vs Aliens,” said Tom Engdahl, President and CEO of Magic Ruby. “FremantleMedia is a global leader in creating compelling content for kids and families; we believe this first-of-its-kind app is the perfect vehicle to immerse fans more deeply into the Wizards vs Aliens universe."

Employees are crucial to any company’s success; as such, we believe in creating once-in-a-lifetime professional opportunities and providing an engaging work environment so employees can have fulfilling careers at Velocity Global."

    This recognition comes at the heels of both Velocity Global and Wright being noticed both regionally and nationally, solidifying the company’s trajectory of success. Recognitions include Top 50 Colorado Companies to Watch 2017, Colorado’s Top 250 Private Companies, and EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2017 Finalist.

    With continued year-over-year growth since its inception in 2014, Velocity Global has become one of the fastest growing, self-funded companies in the U.S. The company is on track to continue its rapid expansion, with revenue growth projected to double in 2018. The company’s strong culture has also been instrumental to its advancement and the lynchpin to Velocity Global’s tremendous growth.
