01. Crowdfunding

Kickstarter is in our blood. From our flagship campaign, BoxThrone, we learned how to drive explosive traffic to the tabletop, games and puzzles market. We have studied the industry extensively for over five years and believe we have distilled the “art” behind crowdfunding down to an science.

02. Marketing

With seven years of marketing experience in the digital startups, software engineering, consumer products and the tabletop games industries, we know how to bring the right audience to the right product.

03. Product focused

With experience bringing products to the mass market, we can help any company bring innovative products to customers through partner retail channels, Western-focused ecommerce and international logistics services.
