Art & Craft is one of the great Tech Ranch® success stories and we are excited that they have grown from 2 to 27 employees over the course of their time with us. Early on, it was obvious that the team was dynamic and had the potential to create great video games. One of our Tech Ranch® partners was able to help them land early stage funding from a Chinese investor which helped launch the company into growth mode.
Their next big milestone? A blockbuster Kickstarter campaign for their MMO – Throne War Simulator game, Crowfall. The campaign raised $1,766,204 from 16,936 backers, making them the 15th biggest video game and 47th largest Kickstarter project overall. Just last month they announced that they will be providing localized web and game servers in Europe for the pre-alpha testing of the game while also announcing new board member, Andreas Weidenhaupt who said, “When I first heard about Crowfall, I knew that I had to be involved. It is a great pleasure and an honor for me to work with the ACE team and to help them bring their first title to the European market. I am absolutely sure that the European gamers will be as enthusiastic as their North American counterparts are about Crowfall.”
We wish them luck in their future growth and are proud to have them as life members of our community. The best part? We’ve now got more space for startups to grow!
There is envy for the next location that gets to have walls adorned with Crowfall images and artwork, however, we cannot wait to introduce you to one of our new companies: GiftNix!
At Giftnix, we are devoted to providing a quality service that takes the guessing out of gift giving, takes the stress out of fundraising, and replaces it with the ingenuity of changing the way we approach eCommerce in an age where everything seems to be ever shifting.
The world seems to be a busier place at all times as we go about our daily lives, with the things we are required to do rapidly eating up the precious hours of our days. As I’m sure everyone feels, if there is a way to make just one thing out of your day easier, faster, and with better results, of course you would jump on it! We seek to provide a gift giving experience that allows you to quickly and easily provide the gift to a friend or loved one, that lets them get exactly what they want, every time. With our digital delivery options, we can also alleviate the stress of time frames and deadlines by getting your gift directly to the recipient, immediately after you place your order.
