Stripe Acquires Chat Mac App Kickoff

Posted Mar 12, 2013

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.”
