It’s 6 a.m. and you’re beat tired but have to drive home. You start your car and receive a greeting, a reward perfectly tailored for the moment.
Your coffee brand of choice, let’s say Tim Hortons, sends a gift to your mobile phone: a free coffee to help get you going at 6 a.m. This is the world that Brian Wong, 22 year old found of Kiip lives in. He wants to change advertising for the better, rewarding customers at timely moments in their life.
Brian Wong came to Detroit for the first event in the Fifty Founders series. The new co-working space Bamboo Detroit was packed with the type of energy you hear Detroit described with: passion, curiosity, and a warm Midwestern welcome for this new guest to the city.
The young tech founder shared with us what he’s learned about building his startup mobile rewards company. Brian first got involved with computers at a very early age and started his career in design for Digg.com. When he left Digg he began exploring other ideas. The idea for Kiip arrived to him on a plane while he observed people on their mobile devices.
Brian shared some great advice for Michigan business leaders and entrepreneurs below.
