Kippt Announces Growth From Open Developer Ecosystem At Slush Conference, Helsinki

SLUSH Conference, HELSINKI, November 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

SLUSH Conference, Helsinki Finland - Kippt, online knowledge management and sharing startup announced growth fueled by its open developer community today at Northern Europe's leading startup conference Slush in Helsinki, Finland.

Kippt began with the simple idea that professionals should have better tools to collect, share and find useful information. With the help of an active developer community, Kippt's customers can benefit from the service on multiple mobile and desktop platforms including iOS, Android, Windows Phone 7, Meego and OS X. Recently the popular third party developer OS X app, clipApp rose to the #2 Top Grossing News App in the Mac App Store.

With Kippt API, anyone using the information platform can create apps. The first version of the open developer API was released in May 2012 and since then Kippt has seen active developer growth resulting in several apps and tools. Kippt's customers and developers define how the startup firm operates.

" We're really excited about developers building things that make our customers' life better. Being a small company, we do not have the resources to diversify on all platforms from the get-go, and thus, the open developer community support is vital for us. On our part, we try to do our best to help and promote the developers," said co-founder Karri Saarinen.

The small company promises continued openness, allowing other people to work on their platform. Kippt's founders believe that online information tools should be freely available. Shaping the future of information processing and tools should belong to everyone and the open developer community plays a key role in that development.

Presently, the Helsinki-based startup is developing the next generation of Kippt which will include many community requested changes, a new interface and wider support of different content. Kippt invites all developers and customers to sign up to test the preview at For more information contact

Slush, Northern Europe's leading startup conference takes place yearly in Helsinki, Finland. Slush brings together the early-stage startup scene from Northern Europe and Russia with top-tier angel investors and venture capitalists. Slush is organised by Helsinki-based accelerator Startup Sauna.

About Kippt: Kippt was founded in late 2011 by Jori Lallo and Karri Saarinen. Frustrated with the information collecting and sharing workflow, they built the first versions of the app to solve their own problems. Kippt received funding after being selected to the Y Combinator seed accelerator in June 2012.

On Kippt, individuals and companies can collect and share knowledge and research, and discover new valuable information from the community. The platform is already utilized daily by a wide-range of professionals including designers, developers, market researchers, journalists, companies and research organizations.
