How Kiip raised $32M and redefined mobile advertising

Brian Wong

Hello Disruptive Startups!

Join us on Wednesday, Nov. 9th as Appster speaks with Brian Wong from Kiip. Brian has been featured in Forbes' 30 Under 30 and is one of the youngest founders to receive venture capital funding. Fun fact, he graduated from the University of British Columbia with a Commerce degree at the age of 18!

Kiip (pronounced “keep”) redefines how brands connect with consumers through a moment-based rewards platform that targets significant moments in the apps people use every day. For example, if an app sees you've just completed a run, an energy drink brand will reward you with a coupon.

This innovative approach to mobile marketing allows advertisers to seamlessly integrate relevant content and rewards into mobile apps. Kiip works with brands like Coca-Cola, Unilever, Johnson Johnson, and Smuckers - to name a few - and has been featured in Forbes, Fast Company, and TechCrunch. 

This past July, Kiip closed $12M Series C round, raising a total of $32M in funding. Their rewards platform is also used by 5,000 mobile apps and delivers up to 3M rewards each day. Some of their campaigns have seen up to 1278% growth in awareness lift!

A few topics that will be discussed are:

- mobile marketing

- growth strategy

- startup funding

This is a FREE event to attend. Please RSVP since spots are limited!
