Crowdfunding marketing agency Agency 2.0, Shanghai-based distribution, engineering, manufacturing and prototyping company Platform88 today announced a partnership to provide comprehensive crowdfunding services to clients around the world.
Based in Los Angeles, Agency 2.0 will open a Shanghai office which will help Platform88’s early stage Asian clients and Agency 2.0’s own clients in the region.
“The world-class engineering and manufacturing experts at Platform88, along with its deep relationships with trusted, vetted Chinese factories, will ensure end-to-end success for our clients while enhancing campaign backer confidence by eliminating the increasingly problematic timeline from funding to fulfillment,” said Chris Olenik, CEO and co-founder of Agency 2.0.
“Agency 2.0 was the first company to specialize in crowdfunding marketing campaigns and has a proven track record – boasting the most $1,000,000-plus Kickstarter and Indiegogo projects of any agency,” Platform88 founding partner Jacob Rothman said. “This, combined with a shared commitment to excellence and client service, makes them the ideal partner.”
“Integrating services will offer companies leveraging Kickstarter and Indiegogo a one-stop, best-in-breed resource for every stage of product development, from funding to consumer delivery,” said Jonathan Chaupin, COO and president of Agency 2.0.
The partnership agreement was negotiated by Mr. Chaupin and Mr. Rothman.
