Stripe Acquires Chat Mac App Kickoff
Stripe is a mobile payment platform company that has acquired Kickoff. Kickoff is a Mac app that is used for group chatting and task management for collaboration. Benjamin De Cock of Kickoff has been doing some freelance work on Stripe for a while.
“As my experience with Stripe evolved, we talked about ways to work together and eventually decided that it made sense for Stripe to acquire Kickoff,” said De Cock. “As a designer, Stripe felt kind of a scary place to work at — after all, their product is basically an API — but I quickly became fascinated about both the product and the company itself.”
