Aussie company Kite invited to Collision showcase of start ups

A small Australian company has been included in the line up for this year’s Collide showcase event for start up firms.

The release:

Kite’s Founder and Publisher Kiera Kelly today announced the digital publishing company’s inclusion in Collide, the official start-up programme at Collision conference in Las Vegas in May, 2015. Collide has been described as ‘bringing the world’s most promising together’ to exhibit, pitch, network, raise funding, gain world-wide media exposure and rub shoulders with tech giants such as Apple, Google and Facebook. Kite has launched a crowdfunding project on Indiegogo with corporate and individual giveaways to raise funds so that the company can attend Collision and participate in Collide.

“We’re here to find the next Google. The next Facebook.” Said Niklas Zennstrom, founder of Skype on the Collide start-up track. The ‘track’ has a strong track record of success, and been the launching pad for companies such as Uber, Airtasker, Coursera and Nest.

“For Kite to be considered to have the potential of Facebook, Uber or Airtasker by an international organisation is quite an achievement.” says Kelly. “There is so much work to do to join companies and individuals in the digital space. But we need the support of people from home to help us get to Las Vegas, so we can share our message with the rest of the world and put Australia on the map.”

To encourage home support, Kite’s Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign aims to reward corporate and personal donations. On offer is personal freebies, corporate giveaways and sponsorship packages for those who contribute. “We’re indebted to our supporters, so by offering generous perks that recognise each person or companies’ contribution is very important to us. Some of our giveaways include free photo shoots, free consultations and service discounts, plus exclusive access to our BETA groups.” says Kelly.
